Feniton 3, Newtown 1
Feniton continued their superb start to the season with a 3-1 Acland Park win against much fancied Newtown.
The Exeter side are expected to challenge for the top honour this term and so the manner in which the Blues despatched the visitors suggests that Mark Kingdon’s outfit are well on their way to having a most successful season. Charlie Selley opened the scoring with a smart volley after initially cushioning the ball with his chest. The impressive Andy Jones doubled the lead with Paul Dowling providing the assist and Dowling then made it three before Newtown grabbed a late consolation.
Blues boss Mark Kingdon said: “The way we approached the game, against a very good side, was so typical of our early season form. We look confident and sharp in all areas and a huge key is that we are taking our chances which at this level, is so important.”
The victory leaves Feniton as one of just four sides in the Fresha League top flight still to taste defeat this term.
As for the long term aspirations of his side, Kingdon says; “If we can keep everybody fit then I see no reason why we cannot maintain a challenge for the top honours at this level.”
Next up they travel to a Topsham Town side that have yet to win after five outings. Victory at Coronation Field and the Blues may even sit top of the table come Saturday night!
The feel-good factor at Ackland Park has also spread to the Reserves as they made it two wins form two in their Division Six campaign with a pair of goals from John French sealing a 2-1 win at Priory.
