Saffron Crocus Reserves crashed to another defeat at Duxford on Saturday, as the hosts took control from the kick-off in their BIS County League Division 4A encounter.

After last week's encouraging display against Foxton, Crocus were hoping to go one better and record their first win of the season, but despite a good start to the game, they could not match a well-organised Duxford side.

Crocus held firm until five minutes before the break when constant pressure from the home side eventually saw them take the lead.

Crocus tried to get back into the game in the second half, but they could not get through the Duxford defence with just a couple of half chances coming their way.

The hosts fired in two further goals however, to secure the victory.

Saffron Crocus Reserves host Barton on Saturday, 3pm kick-off.
