Feniton still have plenty to play for this season after a nine point Fresha week.

Feniton were 3-1 winners over Willand to complete a very profitable seven days for the Acland Park club.
The Blues had beaten the Mid Devon side back at their Silver Street home just seven days before and repeated the score line with another fine all-round performance. That capped a splendid week for the Blues who had also recorded a single goal Wednesday night win over high-flying, and star studded, Tiverton Town Reserves.
The reason for Feniton’s upturn in fortunes is not lost on manager Mark Kingdon who says: “It’s highly significant that we are once again able to field what I consider our
full strength team. That’s something that has eluded us for much of this season. The win over Tivvy does leave me a tad frustrated for it showed what we are capable of. It was no fluke either, as we could, and perhaps should, have won by a greater margin. It’s four wins on the spin for us now and we feel there may yet be a chance of a top three finish for us.”
That bid for a top three finish does still need favourable results from elsewhere. However, with St Martins, Newtown and Tiverton Town Reserves all facing each other in the closing weeks of the season a win on Saturday over Newtown would boost the Feniton hopes.
You may also want to watch:
Rob Clarke, who was a pivotal part of the Feniton title winning squad last season, is available this weekend and Dave O’Connor is now back to full fitness and looking every bit as sharp as he did before he succumbed to a nasty head injury.”
Kingdon says: “There’s plenty left in this season for us and as such there’ll be no letting up in our intensity and resolve until the last ball of the campaign is kicked.”
