Darlington RA 2 Alnwick Town 1


Alnwick Town travelled to today’s game at Darlington safe in the knowledge that their place in Northern League, Division Two was secure.

But after last week’s comfortable home victory over Esh Winning, there was no such repeat in this afternoon’s defeat to a team five places above them in the table.

Town went into half-time a goal down to Darlington RA.

The Railway put two past Alnwick but Kieran Hogg got one back for the visitors with a 35-yard free-kick.

Alnwick are home to Whitehaven on Saturday.
