The club knew the gentleman who had a wallet taken from him was coming to the next home game against Slimbridge, which Frome won 2-0, taking them to 3rd in the league table.

So, with that in mind, Frome worked something out, knowing it could have been unlikely that the supporter would get his item back.

They tweeted, along with a photo: “Last week we were disappointed to report a season ticket holder had his wallet stolen within the stadium. Today, Jon Davies presented Dan with a brand new wallet and a collection from our on players, management & directors.”

On Facebook, the club were able to say a bit more: “He lost a considerable amount of money as well as his tickets. Players, management and directors also contributed to ensuring our supporters lost money was returned.”
