The local derby usually attracts a crowd and this season was no different. After making a good start it looked as if tows were going to meet their rivals on the away pitch and give them a good run for their money . However it was saints who clawed into the lead from a short corner and then one from open play. The half time break made no difference to the run of play and still saints took the game to tows , who struggled with the bounce of the newly layed Moulton pitch. A disheartened tows although fought for the entire 70 minutes were well beaten on the day. Mel Linnel was awarded player of the match and the new nickname of “the mop” for soaking up so much pressure and saving a goal on the line . Bring on the home return game! Towcester 0 Northampton Saints 5.
