NORTHERN LEAGUE DIVISION TWO

Alnwick 1 Thornaby 3

Alnwick came out second best as they clashed with relegation rivals Thornaby today at St James’ Park.

Despite the home advantage, the black ‘n’ whites were two down at the break, and it could have been worse as the visitors had another goal disallowed.

The hosts got back in it after the interval thanks to Ridell, before Thornaby ended any hopes of a comeback with their third goal of the afternoon.

The defeat leaves Alnwick 19th in the table, while today’s guests move a little further away from the mire at the foot of the table.
