Alnwick Town 1 Chester-le-Street 1

A last-gasp equaliser for Alnwick Town saw them grab a useful point at home against Chester-le-Street this afternoon.

The St James’ Park side made it two home draws in a row against teams above them in the Ebac Northern League, Division Two table after a late Dale Kennedy finish.

After a goalless first half, the County Durham side, who had won their last two matches, scored just after the restart.

And the visitors must have thought they were heading home with the three points before Kennedy struck at the death, taking Town’s points tally this season to 30.
