Billingham Town 4 Alnwick Town 1
Town’s win against Heaton Stannington at the end of last year didn’t start a winning streak with the black ‘n’ whites losing to Billingham Town away this afternoon.
The home side were on to a win from the off after three goals in quick succession with two from Drew Lambert and one from Daniel Ballantyne making it 3-0 at half-time.
Alnwick looked like they might make a comeback after the break with a goal from Jake Lowes.
But it was not to be and Drew Lambert took his hat-trick tio make it 4-1 at the final whistle.
