Brixham Villa 1, Feniton 0

Feniton bowed out of the Graddon Vending Devon Premier Cup when beaten by a Brixham Villa side that has yet to be beaten this season.

The outcome was harsh on the Blues who bossed much of the first 45 minutes, but spurned a number of gilt-edged chances and then fell behind to a 20-yard strike just before the break.

An upbeat Feniton boss Mark Kingdom said: “There are more positives than negatives to draw from our performance. It was as good a team performance as we have produced for a good number of weeks and I was very happy with what I saw. In the first half we created enough chances to have won three games!”

Phil Everett and Charlie Selley went closest to netting for the Blues before they fell behind.

Ali Sawyer and Mark Simic linked up to form a very solid central defensive pairing which augers well for the remainder of the Blues’ season.

On Saturday Feniton return to Fresha League duty and a trip to Chard Town.

Dan Jewell comes back into the match day squad after he missed the Brixham trip through being cup-tied. Alex Frankpitt also missed the cup match through work, but he too is available for the trip to Somerset. Feniton will also have a familiar face between the goal posts! With Matt Kingdom away Brian Cann will once again wear the Feniton keeper gloves.
