Feniton stay second in the D Division table behind leaders Yelverton after a commanding victory in the East Devon derby at Honiton.

It was a good day for former Honiton skipper Brian Cann, returning to his previous club for the first time since 1999, and he top scored with an unbeaten 47 to lead Feniton to a seven wicket success.

Russ Whitton (3-18) and John Pyle (3-26) did the bulk of the damage as Honiton were bowled out for 122.

Cann and Graeme Tucker (42no) saw their side over the winning line at 127-3.

Cann said: “It felt strange going back to a place for the first time that holds so many great memories for me. We did our job well and it keeps the season going nicely.”

On Saturday Feniton host a Halberton side who lost only their second game of the season when beaten by leaders Yelverton last weekend.

Skipper Mark Kingdon says: “We’ll be looking to end the first half on a winning note to take us into the second part of the season in a strong position to go on and try to bag a promotion spot. It’s a tight division this time round and we need to be at our best each week. That suits me as we have the players to last the pace.”

Feniton 2nds were surprisingly beaten at home by Axminster II. Stuart Bright top scored with almost half of the Feniton offering of 85, notching 40. That was in reply to the 138 scored by Axminster.
