Birtley Town 1 Alnwick Town 2
Northern League, Division Two
Alnwick Town made it four wins on the bounce in league and cup competitions.
And since an 8-0 drubbing against Norton & Stockton Ancients a month ago, they have won five out of seven, scoring an amazing 21 goals.
This afternoon, on the back of two 5-3 wins, they recorded their second league away victory of the season against a team that was one place above them only on goal difference at the start of play.
The 1-2 success at Birtley gives them daylight between the uncomfortable zone at the bottom of the table.
