Everett’s first Feniton goal sees top game drawn

Feniton 1, Newtown 1 Feniton and Newtown served up the close encounter everybody anticipated and fittingly honours ended even.

It was a first goal in a Feniton short for Phil Everett that secured the Blues a share of the spoils after they had been behind.

Feniton boss Mark Kingdon was left feeling post match that his side had dropped two points as opposed to gaining one. Despite maintain their own unbeaten start to the season and sharing the spoils with another of the fancied sides without Andrew Jones and then being further handicapped by Ben Allen limping off after 30 minutes, Kingdon felt his side should have got more. He said: “We dominated the second half and it’s disappointing that we did not go on and win it. We had 15 corners in the 90 minutes and yet just one goal to show for our afternoon’s work. I had the feeling when I was on the pitch (the Blues boss took over from Allen on 30 minutes) that it was going to be one of those days and so it proved!”

There’s no game for Feniton this weekend as there’s a Fresha League representative match against the Somerset League which involves players from both Feniton and scheduled opponents St Martins, so the much anticipate game between two of the sides expected to battle out the title this year will have to be rearranged.
