Town boss relishing opener

Alnwick Town manager Paul Yeadon insists his side are ‘raring to go’ this season and looking to build on last year’s 16th-place Division Two finish.

The St James’ Park team kick start their Northern League campaign on Saturday with an away match against Tow Law Town. They then host Northallerton Town on Tuesday.

Paul said: “We have learnt a lot from pre-season and the lads are raring to go.

“Hopefully we can finish a few places higher than last season.”

He also made an appeal for volunteers to help out on matchdays this season. Anyone interested should call the club on 01665 603162.
