Season’s second defeat

Alnwick Town Juniors...1 Berwick Juniors...3

Pin Point Recruitment NABC U12 League 2

THE lads were beaten by a strong Berwick team for the second time this season.

Alnwick started brightly enough with Ben seeing his shot come back off the post within the first 10 minutes.

But then Berwick started to compose themselves cancelling out everything Alnwick threw at them.A good save from Moffat kept the score 0-0.

Berwick kept pushing and the Alnwick defence of Sam, Reece, Brandon and Ant had no answer as Berwick scored.

The lads re-grouped and it paid off, a great move saw Ben latch on to Kieron Hedley’s cross and Harvey’s pressure in the box was rewarded with a goal to make it 1-1.

Berwick were awarded a penalty early in the second half, keeper Moffat guessed the right way, but had no chance. Once again the lads had to re-group with Tombo, Kieron, Max, Alfie and Billy working hard in midfield.

Alnwick made a couple of changes and brought on Hazza, Cam, Liam, Craig and Will to try and push for the equaliser, but were caught on the counter-attack as Berwick made it 3-1.

In truth this game was one to forget for the Alnwick lads and Berwick deserved the win.
