Feniton forced to call off big game with Ammies

Feniton’s big game with Exmouth Amateurs was hit by the weather.

The Blues have 11 games to play to complete their Division One season, but they are without a game this coming weekend.

That may prove to be a blessing as it gives the influential striker Paul Dowling extra time in his bid to regain full fitness to help the Acland Park outfit finish the season off with promotion back into the top flight.

Dowling, injured in the game at Ammies on January 21, had originally been thought to be facing six to eight weeks on the sidelines. However, the club’s leading scorer is already close to fitness and that’s great news for the side as boss Mark Kingdon alluded to saying: “Paul is such a big part of our attacking threat and to have him fit for the run-in is going to be so important.”

Feniton still have to play Wellington and University, home and away, but of their other remaining games they meet just two sides who beat them in the first meetings, and both by the odd goal, Tipton St John and Exmouth Amateurs

With Acland Park being something of a fortress this season, only Bow AAC have departed with anything to show from their visit (they won 1-0), it may well be a key factor in the Blues run in that seven of their remaining eleven outings are at home.

A place back in the elite of Fresha, Devon and Exeter league football looks to be theirs for the taking.
