Saints Vets were expecting a squad of a similar vintage from Daventry and were somewhat surprised when faced by a team comprising players from their first, second and third teams.

Stripped of three of their younger players, who were poached by the seconds, Saints found the extra pace and stamina of the visitors decisive but some heroic performances gave Daventry plenty of anxious moments in a most enjoyable sporting encounter.
