Team: Decklyn Hartley, Charlie Trayford, Josh Adams, Dylan Overton, Luke Barker Poole, Joseph Pursey, Taylor Noel, Alex Smith, Jack Hancock, Nayan Bryce, James Currivan, Jonathon Fletcher

Report: League leaders Saxons surrendered their nine month unbeaten record in the most frustrating of circumstances at Bilton. Saxons showed their opponents too much respect and were taught a lesson in

finishing on the day. Saxons had the bulk of possession throughout the match but worryingly created few clear cut chances. However, Saxons remain in the driving seat in the league and have progressed to the latter stages of the cup and one performance aside have had an otherwise fantastic season so far. Man of the match went to Jonny Fletcher.

Finn then made it 3-1 after 22 mins and Camerons scored to make it 4-1.. Towecester worked hard in the second half but Daventry were too good.
