Alnwick Town Reserves 0 Seaton Delaval Amateurs 2

Bluefin Group Bill Gardner Memorial Trophy Final at Purvis Park, Percy Main

Seaton Delaval withstood a late barrage from Alnwick Town Reserves to lift the Bluefin Group Bill Gardner Memorial Trophy yesterday (Bank Holiday Monday).

The Red Devils went ahead in the ninth minute. The Premier Division side must have thought the chance was gone when the Town keeper pulled off a great penalty save but, from the resultant corner, Anthony Woodhouse headed in.

Delaval made it two just after the interval when Michael Fenwick tucked in a right-wing cross as Town were hit on the break.

Second division Black and Whites continued to create chances but were left frustrated as they couldn’t hit the back of the net despite all their pressure.

Other results:

Premier Division: Shankhouse 2 Killingworth Station 1.

Division One: Bedlington Terriers Reserves 0 North Shields Athletic 4.
