Henbury 2

Frampton United 1

JOSH LOVERIDGE’S Frampton slipped to only their second defeat of the season as they went down 2-1 at Henbury who went ahead in the ninth minute when Ryan Ford headed into his own goal.

Frampton created numerous chances but failed to find the back of the net until right on half-time when a long ball out of defence found Ryan Ford who was clear on goal.

Henbury keeper Bebbington challenged for the ball which spun clear and Ford recovered it to run through and slip the ball into an empty net.

Henbury made it 2-1 in the 71st minute following an Adam Rosser free-kick. The initial effort was saved but the ball ran loose to defender Dan Brown and his attempted clearance struck Joe Cox and finished up in the back of the Frampton net.

Frampton should have levelled the score on 85 minutes when Ryan Vincent broke clear but he sent his shot wide.

Next up: Frampton welcome Wick on Saturday, 2pm.
