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
