Feniton were involved in a second low scoring game in just three weeks when they once again so nearly managed to defend a low total, only to come up short.

In their East Devon derby at Kilmington, Feniton, batting first, were bowled out for 99 with only Jon French (31) and Mark Kingdon (16) making any impression with the bat. Tom Gooding (5-29) and Ollie Reed (2-5) did the damage with the ball.

However, Feniton, with Chris May (4-32) and Jon Pyle (2-28) claiming wickets, had Kilmington eight down and still 34 runs from victory only for the home tail enders to nudge their side over the line with former Ottery St Mary duo Rob Crabb and Ollie Reed ensuring that the sixth wicket down was the final one lost in the run chase.
