Baldock reach Last Four
Baldock Town progressed to the Semi-Final of the Anagram Records Trophy with a tightly contested 1-0 win over Frenford Senior. Anthony Bowskill came off of the bench to score the only goal of the game
The second half was a slightly more open affair, with Baldock predominantly in the ascendency, but it looked as though one goal would be enough to settle the tie. Michael Payne was inches away from breaking the deadlock, but saw his powerful drive from 20 yards fizz agonizingly wide. Baldock were beginning to cause their opponent’s defence real trouble and after Ross Haskins made an excellent run down the left hand side, he squared for Christie who this time saw his close range shot valiantly blocked by the Frenford centre-half. Scott Grant made a double substitution with around 20 minutes left, introducing Bowskill and Dougherty to the game. The move almost instantly paid off, Dougherty winning a header which freed Bowskill behind the away defence but he shot wide after outpacing his counterpart. Bowskill had another chance shortly after, this time being released by Matt Hayes with a lovely chipped through-ball, and made no mistake as he side-footed past the goalkeeper from a very tight angle. Baldock saw out the rest of the game and secured their passage into the penultimate round of the competition for the first time in their history.
