Feniton left with five game ‘re-start’ season

 Feniton left with five game ‘re-start’ season

Feniton have been left with two fewer games when their Joma Devon & Exeter League Premier East season resumes next month.

Sidmouth Town have become the latest side to opt not to take part in football ‘res-start’ and so the Premier East campaign will resume with just five clubs and that means an eight game season.

With the adjusted tables removing the results of the teams that have opted not to take part in the re-start, it means that Feniton have just five games to complete their campaign.

Feniton boss James Hiscox says: “It is very frustrating for us but we understand why teams and club are not wanting to continue.

“Everyone has their different opinions on the situation and we must get on with what we have in front of us which is basically a  shortened ‘mini-league’ campaign of five Premier East games and, if we are sitting top at the end of that then one more ‘play-off’ match against the team that tops the Premier West table and it’s just great to be able to focus on getting some football played – something we have all been itching to do again.”

The resumption of the league sees Feniton travel to Lyme Regis on Saturday, April 3 and they then have a 14 day break before an April 17, home meeting with Dawlish followed, seven days later, by what will be their final home league game, an April 24 meeting with Lyme Regis. They wrap things up, in terms of the Premier East season with a May 1 visit to Chard Town Reserves before a May 8 trip to Dawlish.

Given a 14 day gap between the first game of the re-start and game two, will Feniton be looking for a friendly?

The Fenny boss replied: “Yes, we certainly shall be looking for a friendly on the weekend of April 10/11.”
