Guilsfield Keep Ross in the Frame

Created on 02/08/2010 @ 10:13


 Football’s ‘silly’ season is nearly over with the serious business of actually playing the game set to begin.
And while the usual gossip, hearsay and club-swopping has been in full swing for the past two months, Welsh football’s hottest young property has decided that he is going nowhere!Ross Frame in action for Guilsfield
A League of Wales club wrestled with Cymru Alliance sides and even the American college system to secure Ross Frame’s signature but the 18-year-old ended the speculation by signing for Guilsfield, the club where he became such a big hit last season.
“It was flattering to have so many great clubs showing an interest in me but I just felt it would be better signing up for Guilsfield to build on last season and try to score another 20 goals,” said the Llanfair student.
Frame has been monitored by the region’s top clubs for a decade. He made his Llanfair U10 debut at just five and spent most of his high school days associated with Everton, Liverpool and Chester before spending six years under Shrewsbury Town’s supervision.
A promising debut season at Carno followed his Shrewsbury release before Guilsfield took a gamble on the youngster last season. That gamble paid handsome rewards with Frame forcing his way into the Cymru Alliance team of the season with his goals securing a top six finish. He also established himself as a Welsh schoolboy international and was invited for a try-out to study in the USA on a football scholarship. Not to mention the fact that he was a part of the Llanfair High School side that won the Welsh Schools Cup.
Newtown, Caersws, Welshpool Town and Cefn Druids came knocking this summer but the 18 year-old has decided to stay put.
“The management team of Mike Barton and Bernie Jones were a big factor as they helped me so much last season,” he said. “It is a great club too and despite the influx of teams dropping down from the Welsh Premier, I really believe we can finish in the top six once again.
“I will be studying in Cardiff this year but it shouldn’t be a problem coming back to play. I really enjoy playing at Guilsfield. They have an excellent set up and a great bunch of lads. I am just looking forward now to getting stuck into the season and hopefully winning some trophies!”
Local fans should make the most of seeing Frame’s wizardry this season as the USA could prove a tempting proposition next summer. And if he continues his high profile performances, including the winner for Wales schoolboys against New Zealand last season, his army of admirers is sure to grow.
