South Shields 0-1 Alnwick Town (HT)
South Shields 0-3 Alnwick Town (FT)

In the end it was a comfortable victory for Alnwick. First half there were chances at both ends, the deadlock broken by a Tom Vickers half volley. Cracking goal.

The Shields goal led a charmed life, with Alnwick then deciding to play crossbar challenge, and then with the ball being blocked on the line by a Shields hand and the decision not given, it felt like something else would go against us.

2nd half though best possible start, an immediate penalty despite protests that the foul wasn't in the box. Justice for the handball? I'll take it. Keith Douglas sent the keeper the wrong way. 2-0.

The game was sealed with 10 minutes to go. A short corner to Kieran Hogg, who cut inside the defender and rifled the ball home with his right foot. Arguably better than Vickers effort, and the perfect way to round off the win.

The result secures our Northern League status for another year (pending a mathematical disaster).

Next up, Esh Winning at St James' Park on Saturday.
