Seaton Town entertain Feniton at Colyford Road on Saturday (3pm) in a Fresha League top flight game that is much anticipated in both camps.

Town boss Josh Stunell says: “We are well aware that the fact we turned them over in the recent cup tie will be a big factor for them. It was bitter sweet that we had no game this past Saturday. Bitter in as much as it would have been good to have kept our recent revival going, but sweet in as much that after a recent hectic schedule it will have been good for the players to have a day off and take stock, ready for what is sure to be a tremendous game on Saturday.”

Feniton boss Mark Kingdon said: “We will be ready, it’s sure to be a cracking game, but for us the biggest motivating factor is that regardless of the opposition, as Hatherleigh are not in action we can go back top with a win.”

The Blues are without regular glovesman Matt Kingdom who is away, but are able to cal on the services of the vastly experienced Brian Cann who recently made a return to the Willand Rovers team and kept a clean sheet when providing cover for their regular glovesman at Ilfracombe Town in a Western League game.

Dunkeswell-based stopper Cann is no stranger to Feniton as he plays his cricket at Acland Park and has played in goal for the Blues before.

Saturday’s game also sees the return to Colyford Road of former Town player Ben Ede who moved to Feniton earlier in the season.
