Feniton 5, Clyst Valley 1

Fenton showed no signs of their previous weeks heavy cup defeat to put the visiting side to the sword at Acland Park. Charlie Selley (2), Andrew Jones, Dave O’Connor and Mark Simic scored the Blues’ goals.

They were five up before the visitors bagged their late consolation.

Boss Mark Kingdon said: “It was another good performance. Probably the most pleasing thing for me was to see the post-match disappointment amongst the players that they had not won by a greater margin and that shows they really are hungry for success! The one thing I think we did wrong was over-play at times when a more direct approach would have served us better.”

It’s now 38 goals in ten league games for unbeaten Feniton who sit second to leaders Hatherleigh Town who are three points better off having played two more games that Kingdon’s men. There was a debut given to former Seaton Town skipper Ben Ede in the heart of the Feniton midfield. Kingdon said: “He settled in straight away and clearly strengthens still further our squad.”

Feniton are losing the services of Alex Frankpitt and Matt Hesford who are both set for spells working away. They have signed Dan Plater and hope to give the former Exmouth Town defender a debut this coming weekend. They also hope to have Stuart Blackmore back from injury for this weekend’s trip to bottom of the table Exmouth Amateurs.

With two defenders out for the foreseeable future Kingdon has a ready made defensive replacement in the side. Keeper Matt Kingdon can play on the left side of defence and that may open the door for former Willand Rovers goal keeper Brian Cann to play a more regular part in the Blues bid for league and cup glory this season.
