Feniton 4:0 Wellington Town

Feniton had just about the perfect day on Saturday.

Not only did they defeat visiting Wellington, but they then learnt of a defeat for Phoenix Club that saw them climb back into second place in the Division One table.

Another big plus for the Blues was the return to action of Paul Dowling who scored the only goal of the first half before being replaced at the break as he was suffering from the effects of flu!

Second half goals from Andy Hawkins, who headed home a Mark Kingdon corner, Charlie Selley and Ben Allen, wrapped up a comprehensive success for the Acland Park men.

A delighted boss Mark Kingdon said: “We moved the ball around very well and it was a comfortable enough afternoon for us. It’s great to have Paul (Dowling) back for the run-in to the end of the season. He’s such a big player for us, as he proved with the first half goal before he was forced to concede to the dreaded flu he’s been battling.”

Kingdon continued: “With Phoenix losing its back for us to lose in terms of a top two finish and I’ll be asking the players for one big final push. As long as we keep winning from here then we’ll finish where we want to be and be able to plan for a season back in the top flight next term.”
