Feniton 3, Phoenix Club 0

Feniton put ten points between themselves and their nearest rivals for a top three finish with a comfortable victory over the Exeter based side.

The visitors enjoyed the better of a goal less first half. At the break Stuart Blackmore, who had battled well despite suffering from a heavy cold, was replaced by Ben Allen.

Charlie Selley fired Blues into the lead after excellent approach play by the impressive Alex Frankpitt. The lead was doubled when Allen’s shot slipped under the keeper’s body and the final goal came from Selley after a slide-rule pass from Paul Dowling.

Blues boss Mark Kingdon said: “We did well in the first half to weather the best they had to offer and then, once we got the first, we controlled things. It puts us into a very healthy position with four to play and, with Exmouth Amateurs in two weeks, it means a win at Wellington on Saturday would leave us hosting Ammies knowing another home win would take us over the line!”

As things stand 58 points is the target to ensure only two other teams, champions-elect Exmouth Amateurs and Bow AAC, could possibly finish above them.

The win over Culm took them to 52 points and with four to play, two wins from meetings with Wellington (next this coming Saturday, April 7), Exmouth Amateurs, Cullompton Rangers and University, will see them back playing in the Premier Division next season.
