Ebac Northern League, Division Two

Alnwick Town continued their unbeaten start to the season with a comfortable away win this afternoon.

The black and whites’ 5-1 victory in County Durham against the early strugglers means they have taken four points from their first two away games as well as winning at home in midweek.

Town opened the scoring, but were pegged back as Esh Winning managed an equaliser. The north Northumbrians then settled down and scored another four unanswered goals. Adam Shanks, with a hat-trick, Keith Douglas and Brad McClelland secured the three points for the away side.

However, Alnwick will face far tougher tests this season; Esh Winning have conceded 21 goals in their first three league games.
