That soon became 76-7 when Saxby (39) was given out lbw off the bowling of Surrey star Murtaza Hussain.
Ben Langford fired a 98-ball 50 before being run out by Jones but the Saints were frustrated by more late order runs from Matthew Hicks who fired an unbeaten 61 as the home side finished on 204-9.
Hussain ended with figures of 3-61 while skipper Jones claimed 2-13.
The Hicks brothers opened the attack for the hosts with Matthew making the early breakthrough dismissing Douglas Muzawazi for 12.
Chaudry (13), Barnes (15) and Hussain (17) all made starts but none were able to capitalise as the Saints slipped to 65-4.
Sam Rowlands (5) and Phil Caley (7) went cheaply but their was more resistance from Marc and Ben Ramsay (18no) who put on 36 for the seventh wicket.
Marc top scored with 24 before he was caught by Andrew Hick off the bowling of Robert Clements.
Jones and Fogarty both went without troubling the scorers and Cummins had only added 1 before Clements removed him for his fourth wicket to wrap up the Saints innings on 121.
