Alnwick Town 0 Thornaby 1

Northern League, Division Two

Alnwick Town slumped to a disappointing 0-1 defeat to mid-table Thornaby this afternoon.

The game had survived a pitch inspection earlier in the day and, under a cloudless sky, the hosts found themselves 0-1 down at half-time.

They could not recover the position and surrendered all three points to the visitors.

Before play, Alnwick were sixth from bottom with 30 points, compared to Thornaby’s eighth place with 46 points.

It follows last-gasp heartache last week when a late penalty robbed them of a draw against Washington.
