Billingham Town 0 - 3 Alnwick Town
Three great finishes and a dominant 2nd half display were enough to bring a comfortable three points back home.
With Tom Macpherson serving his suspension, and Tony Brown, Brad McClelland, Josh Willis and Nathan Brown all injured, the proof that a big squad is key was shown. Ross Gair wore the armband for the day, and led by his performance where the team defended admirably for their 1st clean sheet of the season.
James Jackson and Chris Glass were a constant thorn in the Billingham side, with both getting the on the scoresheet.
Manager Jon Egen said, "We never got going so we changed our style our style and the lads caused trouble for Billingham all 2nd half. 3 points were massive today and the lads were over the moon to secure a clean sheet obtaining them."
