Alnwick Town fought back from a goal down to beat struggling Tow Law Town 3-1 in Northern League Division Two this afternoon.
Kenny Collins, Darren Riddell and Stephen Hogg were on target for the St James’ Park side, who heaped more misery on their second-bottom hosts, who sit 21st.
Lowly Tow Law had taken the lead through Scott Brassell, but that was as good as it got for the home side.
Collins and Riddell scored to give Alnwick a 2-1 lead at the break, before Hogg’s second-half effort sealed the win for the black ’n’ whites, who went into the match in 16th place.
The victory was Alnwick’s fourth in seven matches, as Derek Atwell’s men maintained their strong finish to the 2014/15 campaign. Alnwick’s penultimate game of the season is next Friday, when they host Chester-le-Street.
The win came just days after the club was rocked by the news that legendary goalkeeper Clive Burn had died, aged 83.
