YATE Town Reserves suffered a heavy defeat at Frampton United in Nigel Hawkins’ first game in charge.
The Bluebells have had a huge change in personnel since manager Dale Dempsey left in December 2013 and youth team manager Hawkins will combine his responsibilities after being handed the job.
Out has gone most of the team that has played most of the games this season with their youth team having to fill the void.
Frampton went ahead on eight minutes from a Lee Driver-Dickerson free kick delivered into the box and headed home by Steve Jackson.
A second goal on 14 minutes came from a Karl Palmer corner volleyed home by Michael Attwooll-Smart.
Frampton increased their lead in the 48th minute. Again it was Steve Jackson driving the ball into the bottom corner after receiving a great through ball from Karl Palmer.
Yate were unlucky not to pull a goal back on the hour mark as James Kenway saw his 20-yard free kick rebound off the crossbar.
Frampton went further ahead in the 78th minute when a bad clearance by the Yate keeper fell nicely for Chris Fower to net from 20 yards.
Fower rounded the scoring off in the 82nd minute but following the goal there was some altercation between some of the home players and the visitors, resulting in Frampton’s Jackson being dismissed.
