Alnwick’s Invincibles proved their dominance once again at the weekend as they scored 50 points in their thrashing of Wigton Colts.

The Greensfield youngsters ran riot in testing conditions at home on Saturday against their Cumbrian rivals.

And it marked the Colts’ 13th win from 13 matches in their superb season thus far.

It all comes following fears for the side’s survival at the start of the season due to a lack of numbers.

But the remarkable turnaround has seen the Alnwick side gain revenge on rivals Morpeth for last year’s County Cup final defeat by coming from behind to beat them in the league as well as winning over Billingham, who did the double against Alnwick last year, to go top in December.
