Feniton enjoyed a great afternoon as they landed a single goal success at Exeter Civil Service and then heard of the draw between the only two sides to sit between them and top spot in Division One.

The only goal of the game arrived in the closing stages of the first half when a long-range Charlie Selley shot found its way into the back of the net. Thereafter, it became something of a battle, as the ground became heavier, but Feniton dug deep and finished worthy winners. Boss Mark Kingdon said: “They (University) battled well and looked to have made a number of changes from the side we brushed aside the week before at Acland Park. What we did so effectively was show great resilience and, as a Manager, when you see that in you side you know you are doing something right!”

Kingdon had special praise for Craig Bowden who stepped up from the Reserves to make his first appearance for the senior side: “He played very well and certainly looked very composed throughout.”

Next up for the Blues is a testing trip to mid table University. Kingdon says: “You are never quite sure what side the University XI’s are going to field so we’ll need to be at our best. If we are in the zone then I have no fear. However, I’ll remind the players how hard we have worked to be where we are and being focussed on the next game is paramount to the success continuing.”

Skipper Andy Hawkins, who missed the Civil Service game but has five goals in his last two outings, returns for the University trip.
