📝Match Preview: City Women vs Feniton

City aiming for Devon County Cup success

21 January 2022

Exeter City Women will be looking for that bounce back factor this weekend, as Feniton are the visitors to Speeds Meadow for the Devon County Premier Cup Semi Final (Kick Off 2pm).

Feniton currently sit second in the Western Division, level  on points with Plymouth Argyle's Development team, although Fenny do have two games in hand on the Pilgrims. The East Devon side are unbeaten in their last three games and secured their place in the Devon County Premier Cup Semi Final with a comprehensive win over Bideford, winning the game by seven goals to one. Brittany Harris has been the spearhead for Feniton this season, her fifteen goals only bettered in the Division by Liskeard's prolific Chloe Williams. Amy Salter and Megan Williams have provided goalscoring assistance to Harris, with eight and seven goals respectively.

There is the possibility of some familiar faces in blue this weekend, with Louise Ilsley, Sophie Skilton and Kate Finch all likely to feature against their former Club. Ilsley was part of City’s Title winning side of 2019 and spent three years as a Grecian, making 29 appearances. Finch spent two years with Exeter between 2016 and 2018, an impressive sixteen goals in her 31 appearances in red and white offering a sign of the threat she may pose in this cup tie. Skilton was part of the dominant City Development Team that were denied a likely promotion last season, due to the League's unfortunate curtailment. She also lined up in the Senior County Cup Final for City, assisting Chloe Harris' goal.

Abbie Britton and Aaron Wakley's side will have been disappointed to lose their nine game winning run last weekend, but with some significant cup fixtures coming up in the next few weeks, it was a timely reminder on what can happen if the team are not at their best. City's Devon County Cup Final victory in 2021 was to begin the upward momentum that has led to the already significant achievements of this season, and they will be keen to keep hold of the Trophy for the first time in the Club's History. With an FA Cup 4th Round tie against West Bromwich Albion to look forward next weekend, all focus will be on making sure the team go in to that game with a place in the Devon County Cup Final secured.
