Feniton’s miserable start to the new macron League season continued as they went down 3-0 to Seaton Town.
The result means that fenny currently sit bottom of the fledgling Macron Devon and Exeter league premier Division table!
Seaton went into the game with one win from their first three games, but they looked the fitter – and stronger – side during a first half in which Glen Gould and Jacob Rowe pulled al the strings in the home midfield.
The best chance that fell to Fenny was an effort from player-manager Ben Ede that drew a fine save from Town glovesman Perham.
Five minutes before the interval there was a nasty collision between Feniton players Louis Dyer and Kieran Johnston with both players needing significant medical attention! Dyer required his wound to be glued and a not so lucky Johnston needed 14 stitches!

Feniton boss Ben Ede said: “I was generally happy with our first half performance, the injuries to Louie and Kieran was the turning point for us in my opinion as, before them, we had started looking like getting into the game a bit more. After that we went to pieces and weren’t good enough.
“I could easily moan about player availability etc, but at the end of the day it’s 11-versus-11 and we were well beaten by a better side.
“We need to get our act together and quickly or it’s going to be a very long season.”
