JUNIOR FOOTBALL: Bunch of fives for Alnwick boys

U12s PinPoint League

Fenham/Montague Boys 0 Alnwick Town 5

Alnwick kicked off the season with a five-star show on a breezy day in Newcastle last Saturday.

Both teams started brightly with equal possession, but the visitors took the lead when Joe Aynsley fired in from the right after a through-ball from Harry Felton (0-1). The wind made it difficult to play passing football, but Alnwick tried hard with Tom Forster and Elliot Wass tidy at the back.

With the wind at their backs, Alnwick dominated the second half in both possession and goals.

The second goal came from a mistake from the goalkeeper, allowing Ross Edwards to tap in and a good header from James Williams added the third (0-3).

A cracking free-kick from Aynsley put Alnwick 0-4 up before Felton slotted home number five.

A good solid performance to kick off the season.
