Feniton skipper Mark Kingdon declared himself highly satisfied with his teams 14 point haul from a visit to Plymouth Civil, Service and Roborough.

Kingdon said: “They are a good side and so I am not going to complain about a respectable points haul on their ground. We are in the mix at the half way stage and you can’t ask for more than that. It’s up to us to drive now over the next three or four games to ensure we are still, part of the promotion race for the final hurdles of the campaign.”

Batting first Feniton were in all sorts of bother with both the skipper and Charlie Selley back in the pavilion with two on the board! Indeed it was an unbroken stand of 74 for the eighth wicket that saw Feniton past the 200 before they closed on 228-7.

Pyle, batting at number nine finished unbeaten on 47 whilst Andrew Rose was not out 41. John French (3-53) and Russell Witton (2-57) were the principle wicket takers as the home side reached stumps at 202-6.

Kingdon’s men have a tough task to launch the second half of the season when they entertain top of the table Ipplepen.
