SEPTEMBER 6th - DEPLETED HOLDERS THROUGH

Holders Feniton are through to the second round of The East Devon Senior Cup following a 9-2 thrashing of Wellington Town. There was an air of trepidation before the game as it coincided with the pre-nuptial weekend of former player John French meaning Fenny were missing the services of five regulars. However, up from the reserves stepped Chris May, Neil Winter, Matt Dowling, Richard Austin and Sam Downes who all performed admirably, the latter being particularly impressive. After squandering two early clear cut chances, Fenny went in front after 15 minutes courtesy of Mark Simic only for the visitors to equalise 5 minutes later. From that point on it was virtually all one way traffic with Fenny racing into a 5-1 interval lead. The pattern continued for much of the second half with Fenny adding a further four goals beore gifting Welly a late consolation. Simic went on to complete a fine hat-trick, with Paul Dowling (2), Charlie Selley, Matt Dowling, Ben Ede and Downes adding the others.


SEPTEMBER 6th - EVEN FURTHER DEPLETED RESSIES BOW OUT 4-2 AT OTTERY

Although this Football Express Cup fixture against Ottery St Mary was a reserve team fixture, the knock on effect of them losing five of their players to the first team plus other regulars attending the stag weekend, the side was mostly made up from the youthful third team. With Ottery having started the season with a 100% record from their three games played, this was always going to be a difficult ask especially with all the changes forced upon stand-in manager Louie Dyer. With so many players away, it also meant the third team had to concede their home Geary Cup tie against Sandford Reserves. After a promising start, Fenny fell went behind to a long range deflected shot but recovered well and were awarded a penalty that was crisply put away by Ben Campbell. Ottery came back strongly following the equaliser and scored three times in quick succession before the break from a cross that drifted in to the top corner, a penalty and a good finish from the edge of the box. Instead of letting their heads drop, Fenny came out in the second half taking the game to the opposition and were rewarded when a long range free kick from Mike Ebdon sailed into the top corner to deservedly reduce the arrears. Try as they might after this they found another goal elusive so it is Ottery who progress into the next round. Despite the result, the team can take great pride in their attitude and endeavour with every player can hold their heads high and take a lot of satisfaction and pride out of the game. Special mention to skipper Sam Batemen, who led by example, and also to Jamie Cobbledick who, with no recognised keeper available, volunteered to go in goal and did a superb job and could do little about the goals conceded.  


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!)
