Feniton rounded off their season with a 92-run success over an Uplyme side that has secured a play-off berth by virtue of finishing second on the C Division East.

Uplyme will now travel to Plymouth Civil Service and Roborough who finished second in the D Division West table for a one-off match this Saturday (September 6) with the winners moving up to the B Division and the losers staying where they are!

Feniton’s Mark Kingdon must be wishing the season was not about to end! The former skipper top scored in the meeting with Uplyme with a knock of 81 and that mean his average across the last four games of the season was 53! He completed the campaign with 399 runs, second only to Canadian Adam Ramcharran who topped the season’s league run charts at Acland Park with 449 runs.

Matt Kingdon ( a cousin of Mark) was unbeaten with 35 as Feniton, batting first, closed on 204.

Ollie Lee (3-22) and Steve Batey (2-37) were the leading wicket takers for Uplyme who have seen their brave bid to edge champions Ottery St Mary off their perch, fad away over the closing weeks of the campaign.

In this match Uplyme replied with 112 with Henry Brimacombe (21) and Ollie Lee (20) contributing the top two knocks.

Mark Kingdon completed a fine all-round shift with three wickets for 20 runs – that saw the all-rounder to 18 league wickets for the season and skipper Jon Pyle also claimed three wickets.

Feniton finished the campaign in sixth spot with 225 points which saw them end the campaign 40 points short of a promotion play-off place and a healthy 56 above the drop zone.
