Feniton continued their quest for Exeter and District Youth League honours when they won their East Devon derby meeting with Seaton by the odd goal in three.

Fenny had to work hard to bank all three points against a determined Seaton team.

Feniton started brightly and Oscar Walsh hit the side netting early on.

However, Seaton opened the scoring from a bizarre goal direct from a corner to take a shock lead which they held until half-time.

The game was being played in the face of a gale force wind and it took Feniton 20 minutes of the second half against stiff Seaton resistance to level when Branden Simsek’s cross was turned home at the far post by Haydn Tucker.

Seaton continued to make a game of it, but visitors Feniton were now on the front foot and another superb Branden Simsek cross was met by striker Chaz Dodd on 75 minutes and he headed the ball into the top corner to seal a fourth successive win for the team.

Full credit must also be afforded to Seaton Town for their superb contribution to the contest and also to 18-year-old referee Connor Murphy, who officiated the game superbly throughout.
