Feniton have taken their promotion battle to the final day after their last away game of the season saw them win by seven wickets at Countess Wear.

The Exeter side batted first and were restricted to 124-9. It was Feniton’s Dan Clarke who took the honours with the ball.

Called up from the second XI to replace Adi Pullin who opted to pay football, Clarke claimed six wickets for 28 runs in a spell of 13 overs and he also played a part in another wicket with a fine catch!

Graham Tucker then top scored in the run chased with 29 and Charlie Selley struck a valuable 18.

Feniton skipper Mark Kingdon said: “I’m pleased we have taken it to the final day, the odds are against us and, if it is to be a case of so near yet so far, then we’ll dust ourselves down and come back next year for another go. The target is always to do better than the year before and this season we have done just that with more points and a higher finish. I am really delighted with the way the team have battled all season long.”

Sean Devine (69) and Andy Vickery (33) led Feniton II to an Acland Park win over Countess Wear II. The Exeter side closed on 217-6 with Matt Davies taking 4-42.

The run chase was completed with just five wickets down.
