Rain no real pain for Feniton

PUBLISHED: 12:46 10 July 2012

Feniton were hit by the weather for the third time in four games when they were washed out at Plymouth Civil Service and Roborough.

Skipper Mark Kingdon was up-beat about the cancellation, and he had good reason!

Four of his first-choice eleven were missing the trip down the A38 Expressway as they had chosen to holiday!

Kingdon said: “With four away, and didn’t they choose the best option taking their holidays when the rain hit, we were obviously not as strong as we would have wanted to be to taking on one of the form teams in the section. At least everybody has got the same outcome this week. It’s all the more frustrating when you are one of the few in then section to be called off. At least on a wash-out day throughout the Division we all have to settle for the six points.”

Next up for Kingdon and his side is Saturday’s derby meeting with Seaton at Acland Park. Kingdon says: “The next two are as big a challenge as I think we can face for the remainder of the season. Seaton are going well and have been unbeaten for a while and then we have a trip to Yelverton. If we can come through the next two with a decent haul of points it will set us up nicely for the final third of the season.”

Feniton lost the first meeting with Seaton when they were put in and bundled out for just 103 in 40 overs. Kingdon says: “We’ll certainly be looking to bat better than we did at Court Lane in early May.”
