Hogg and Shanks Strike Again
Alnwick Town secured the double over South Shields with a 2-1 victory in Peterlee.
The away side were looking to continue their rich vein of recent form, and in windswept conditions returned home with another 3 points, leapfrogging their opponents in the table up to 15th place.
Although the home side took the lead, Alnwick responded before half time. A Kieran Hogg free-kick was parried by the goalkeeper straight into the path of brother Stephen Hogg to bring the scores level.
The win was secured in the 2nd half, with the dubious goals panel awarding the goal to Adam Shanks for his 25th league goal of the season, 31st in all competitions.
Finals Score: South Shields 1-2 Alnwick Town
Goalscorers: Stephen Hogg, Adam Shanks.
