As the game progressed, Frome played a good long ball game and double their lead on 75 minutes as Frome’s Monelle got behind a tiring Cheddar defence. The visitors added a third goal on 85 minutes, Hulbert getting his second of the evening from close range.
Cheddar deserved a goal for their efforts, but were denied late in the game when Adam Jones headed wide.
There were outstanding displays by goalkeeper Mike Dangerfield and skipper and Rotamec man of the match, George Booth.
Cheddar were in Les Phillips League Cup action at Warminster Town, but the game was abandoned at half-time due to an unfit playing surface with the match evenly balanced at 0-0.

On Saturday, Cheddar take on their old Somerset League adversaries, seventh-placed Oldland Abbotonians.
