Brad McClelland scored a brace to inspire Alnwick Town to a 2-1 victory over South Shields this afternoon in Northern League, Division Two.

The forward broke the deadlock in the first half before netting his second late on to put the hosts 2-0 up. Shields pulled one back at the death to set up a tense finish, but it proved nothing more than a consolation.

It was a welcome result for Town, who had lost their last two games.

The St James’ Park side visit Northallerton Town next Saturday.
