GFA Senior Amateur Cup

Dursley Town 3 Frampton United 2

County League Frampton United suffered a cup shock at Northern Senior League Dursley Town, writes Ash Loveridge.

A brace from Ben Dolbear and an Aaron Nash strike saw Dursley come from behind to progress to the next round, leaving boss Karl Nash purring: “I was very impressed with that result, playing a top team in the County League,” he said.

Nash felt his side recovered well after going a goal behind to Lee Driver-Dickerson’s side: “We started the sharper, creating good chances, kept knocking the door.

“We were 1-0 down after 20 minutes, arguably against the run of play, then we got our breakthrough. Aaron Nash latched on to a ball from our keeper and made no mistake of smashing it top corner. We got into the lead when man of the moment Ben Dolbear converted a great goal.”

Dursley hit the ground running after the break against a Frampton side who have lost just once this season and sit second in the table, a league above Nash’s side.

“We started the second half really well and Dolbear grabbed his second to make it 3-1 with a lovely finish and despite Frampton scoring on 80 minutes, we held on for a very impressive victory.”
