Following last week’s ‘try crazy’ victory against Old Crossleyans the home side were in good form to finish the season in high spirits.
The fine weather put the home-side in a good mood as less than 20 minutes into the match, a penalty try to Alnwick saw them take an early lead 7-0.
But the opposition, Northern FC, came back moments later with a lucky bounce to equalise 7-7.
Keeping up the pace, Gothorp set up Todd to bring it in under the post to see Alnwick 14-7.
Alnwick continued to gain but determined not to lose, Northern scored straight after half time but Alnwick worked back the lead to 21-17.
The home-side’s lead was eroded away and the teams were neck-and-neck going into the closing stages.
The final score saw Alnwick finish the season 27-27 in a hard-fought match.
