Alnwick Town 2 Darlington RA 3

Northern League, Division Two

Alnwick’s losing streak continued this afteroon when they went down to Darlington RA.

But the scoreline was more respectable than last week’s 6-1 defeat, with just one goal between the teams.

Alnwick started well when Shanks’ effort was deflected wide.

Just over 20 minutes in, Stephen Hogg blasted home to out the black and whites in the lead.

Ten minutes later the visitors got an equaliser and not longer after, the ball went over the line again, 1-2.

At half-time, the scoresheet read 1-3, after a counter attack from a loose throw in.

Twenty minutes into the second half, Town’s Jon Colley got one back before Atwell hit the side netting.

K Douglas came on for Atwell, while Mbiavanga replaced Palmer. Hume and Colley were both booked.

Next Saturday Alnwick are away at Hebbern Town.
