FORTHCOMING FIXTURES: SATURDAY 30th AUGUST - FENITON RESERVES v ILMINSTER TOWN RESERVES (Division 5) KICK-OFF 3.00pm

AUGUST 27th - FIRSTS OFF TO A WINNING START

Feniton opened their Premier Division campaign under the lights at Willand Rovers last Wednsday evening and came home with the points following a comfortable 3-0 victory. The first attack of the match nearly produced a goal from Danny Lewis who saw his header from a Paul Dowling cross rattle the crossbar. However strikes from Charlie Selley and Dowling put Fenny in control by half time. Both sides contrived to squander clear cut chances in the second half before Fenny skipper Ben Ede atoned for an earliermiss when he added a third goal 10 minutes from time.



AUGUST 26th - TWO FROM TWO FOR RESSIES WHILST THIRDS SUFFER HARSH REALITY SHOCK

Fenny’s second string made it two wins from their opening two fixtures when they defeated Sampford Peverell 3-1 on Tuesday evening. Matt Gilmour added to his goal on Saturday with the opener with  Vince Loveridge and Danny Lewis also on the scoresheet. Meanwhile on the same night, the newly formed third team, most of whom were the under 16s side of last season, were given a cruel reminder of the task they face this season when they were walloped 11-0 at Culm United Reserves.



May 27th - CUP DOUBLE DELIGHT AS FENNY WIN MORRISON BELL FOR SECOND SUCCESSIVE YEAR….

A Dave O’Connor strike midway through the second half was enough to see off gallant opponents Upottery and give Feniton their second cup success in the space of 5 days. Apart from the opening 20 minutes when Fenny won a succession of corners and twice went close to opening the scoring, there was little to choose between the sides for the remainder of the game with The Otters more than matching Fenny despite the three division gap. Indeed, based on this performance some of the Otters players could quite easily grace the Premier Division. The relief on the faces of the Fenny players, management and supporters was clear to see when the goal went in but they still had to endure some anxious moments near the end as Upottery searched for an equaliser and they had Ben Ede to thank for hacking the ball off the line following a free header from a corner. Charlie Selley then looked certain to add a second for Fenny but he was brought down right on the edge of the area after rounding the keeper and the subsequent free kick went to waste. So, following a disappointing fourth place in the league Fenny ended their long season with a well merited cup double and they can now look forward to next season with anticipation of further success.


May 22nd - FENTASTIC FENNY WIN EAST DEVON SENIOR CUP….

Feniton lifted the prestigious East Devon Senior Cup for the first time in their long history by defeating hot favourites and Devon and Exeter Premier Division runaway champions St Martins on penalties at Crediton United’s well appointed Lords Meadow ground. After a goalless 120 minutes of absorbing football Fenny held there nerve to triumph in the shoot out converting all five of their kicks. That the match got that far was due in no small part to Saints keeper Lee Bailey who repeatedly kept  Fenny at bay by making a string of outstanding saves including an incredible one at point blank range to deny Paul Dowling in the last of the 90 minutes. Such was Bailey’s performance, the adjudicators chose as man of the match although the immense performance of Fenny wing-back Alex Frankpitt must have ran him very close. Both sides were reduced to ten men after 25 minutes of the start following a double sending-off, Fenny’s Mark Kingdon perhaps unlucky to see red for reacting to a reckless tackle which could easily caused him a nasty injury. The first four penalties from each side were all of the highest quality giving the keepers no chance of saving. Alex Frankpitt, Charlie Selley, Dave O’Connor and Mark Simic all showing true composure to tuck theirs away for Fenny. After Saints struck the post with their fifth spot-kick, up stepped Ben Ede to stroke the ball home to win his side the cup before being engulfed by his jubilant teammates. So a new name appears on the cup which according to The Old Sage of Colestocks was first contested in 1904 when it was won by RFA Battery (possibly Duracell FC these days!)
