Feniton stay second in the Fresha League Premier Division after a single goal Acland Park success over Seaton Town.

The visitors came into the game still bubbling from victory over Sidmouth Town in the Devon Premier Cup seven days before and presented a good challenge for Fenny.

The conditions did not lend themselves to a passing game, but both teams made bright starts and Feniton had an early appeal for a penalty turned down.

The only goal of the contest arrived midway through the first half when Feniton were awarded a free-kick some 30-yards from goal.

Player-manager Ben Ede took the kick and his well-flighted delivery found Mark Simic and he slotted it home!

The second half was an open affair, but there was no real clear-cut chances at either end until the very last last minute when Bradley Groves had a close range header superbly saved by the Seaton glovesman.

Post-match Feniton boss Ede said: “I was very happy with the way we defended. The partnership of Mark Simic and Phil Everett was outstanding. For me, Mark (Simic) just edged the man of the match award. I must say I thought Seaton were a very good young side and clearly have some promising players who just lacked that composure with their finishing. Playing like that they’ll be more than a handful for other sides this season.”

Feniton team: Team: Kingdon (C), Sellick, Blackmore (Everett), Simic, Jefford (Groves), Price, Frankpitt, B Ede (Southall-Brown), Allen, Lewis, Norman
