FENITON begin a three-week home schedule starting with Topsham Town this Saturday that could give the village side one hand on their first ever Premier Division title.

Hatherleigh and St Martins follow, and if Feniton – who are yet to drop a point at home – collect maximums they will take some stopping.

Relieved Chagford bagged their first point of the season in a 1-1 draw at Clyst Valley.
