Alnwick showed great spirit to earn a hard-fought 18-14 win at home this afternoon on the back of disappointing away defeats.

The Greensfield side are finding it tough going in North One East this season, particularly on the road, so today’s win over Bradford and Bingley will offer some relief.

The home side took a 6-0 lead through two penalties before the Yorkshire outfit went into the lead with a converted try.

Alnwick bounced back with a seven-pointer of their own as Warcup touched down under the posts before another try saw the visitors take a 14-13 half-time lead.

A tight second period saw Alnwick earn the win as they pushed over a scrum from a penalty for the only score of the half.

Also at home today, the Colts went down 16-24 to a strong Bellingham side.
