Alnwick Town 0 Whitehaven 2

NORTHERN LEAGUE, DIVISION TWO

Alnwick Town’s season is tailing off badly after another league defeat this afternoon.

Although they secured their place in Division Two next season a couple of games ago, they have since been unable to push on and up the table.

The Black ‘n’ Whites followed up their reverse at Darlington RA last week with a lacklustre display at home to Whitehaven, who were just one place above them in the league at the start of play.

Kieran Hogg was made captain for the day on his 100th appearance for the club but Town were unable to gain any inspiration from that landmark.

The visitors scored at the end of each half, the latter from a penalty, to notch a straightforward victory.

Alnwick Town’s next match is on Tuesday night at Heaton Stannington.
