Fenwick leads way as five star Reds prove too hot for Cardiff
PLYMOUTH MARJON soared to third in the men's regional Davis Wood Hockey League ahead of next Saturday's top of the table Premiership clash against fourth placed Robinsons at UCP Marjon.

Keeper Ben Blundy also made a penalty stroke save, just after half time, to keep the score at 1-0 and inspire the home side ahead of their goal spree, in which Bissett claimed his first Premiership goal.
Unbeaten PGSOB and Plymouth Marjon A are second and third in Conference South after three rounds.
