Feniton see title chance end with Chard draw, but there’s still plenty to play for!

Feniton player-boss Mark Kingdon has issued a rallying call to his stumbling stars that there is still plenty for the Blues to play for this season.

A 1-1 draw at home to Chard Town Reserves followed hot on the heels of a 2-1 defeat at Budleigh Salterton reserves and the five dropped points certainly ended any lingering hopes of repeating last season’s title success and have probably severely dented any ambitions of a top three finish.

However there’s still a semi-final in the East Devon Senior Cup to come and the team are looking forward to keeping hold of the Morrison Bell Cup they won last year.

Kingdon says: “We are missing the four key members of last years squad, but what we have is better than we are showing, We are very good when we have the ball, but Saturday was another case of us being shrinking violets when we don’t have it. Chard taught us a lesson in how to get the ball, back once it is lost, and their (Chard) work rate was top drawer. We do need to buck up our ideas, but there’s still, plenty to play for, if we want it badly enough.”
