DUNKESWELLL Rovers’ double-header weekend didn’t go according to plan.

The first fixture was home to Silverton in the league and things started brightly with some good football being played.

It wasn’t long before Dan Matthews headed home from a long throw, but this woke up Silverton and they started to fight back equalising before the break.

Silverton began the second half strongly and put two more past Dunks in quick succession.

Dunks did start playing better after this and were awarded a penalty that Charlie Stepheson put away.

The game was more open the second half with both sides seeing the ball, but it was Feniton who got the breakthrough.

With some tiring legs Dunks conceded a second with just minutes left on the clock.

Shining lights were Jacob Cobb White in midfield and Ryan Salter and Josh Boulton both playing in only their second games.
