Longhoughton Rangers U12s 0 Alnwick Town U12s 3

U12 NE Youth Divisional Cup

A McCann hat-trick inspired Alnwick Town to a 3-0 win over Longhoughton Rangers in the U12 NE Youth Divisional Cup.

The youngster was on fire in this derby encounter and scored his first shortly before half-time when he smashed in at the back post following a Threlfall pass.

Longhoughton had a good chance to get back into the game after the interval but Graham saved well.

Then, minutes later, Alnwick increased their lead when Elliott played a ball in behind the defence for McCann to slot past the out-coming keeper.

McCann completed his three-goal heroics with a shot into the corner of the net.

Alnwick’s Joe Pickard picked up his side’s man-of-the-match award.

He hit the bar in the first half, with the score at nil-nil, after unleashing a fierce shot.
