Feniton go two down, but once again fight back to win handsomely

PUBLISHED: 22:37 14 October 2014

Feniton boss Mark Kingdon saw his side concede twice for the second week running before mounting a comeback to secure victory.

This time it was in a Devon Senior Cup tie against a Willand Rovers Reserve team the Blues had beaten comfortably in the opening league fixture of the season.

However, once the rot had been stopped, primarily after a change of tactics and switched back to a tried and tested system, Blues took charge and eventually won the game 7-3!

Charlie Selley took the scoring honours with four whist the other goals came from Ben Ede, Paul Dowling and Ben Simic, the latter netting once again from a set piece.

Kingdon said: “I had hoped we’d be able to slot into the diamond formation that seems popular these days, but the lads were not comfortable with it and so, having gone two down we snitched back to the good old four-five-one and were soon back on track. Mind you, its not good for the old pulse rate when we ship early goals like this and give ourselves work to do. At least it cerates a challenge and I guess, looking on the positive side of things, it proves my lot can take on a challenge and see it off!”

On Saturday Feniton are again at home when they entertain Chard Town Reserves in Fresha League top flight game.

Phil Everett is away, but Alex Frankpitt who was unavailable for the Willand game and Danny Lewis, who has been out injured, are both back in the reckoning.
