Stockton travelled to Shildon today to play Newton Aycliffe. After some initial pitch concerns which saw us having to move our game to an artificial surface the game finally kicked off.
Again a slow start from Stockton, probably down to not very clear pitch markings, saw Newton Aycliffe score the first before a quick reply from Stockton. Another quick goal saw Stockton go in 2-1 at half time. Early substitutions clicked well for Stockton and goals started to flow at regular intervals with the highlight certainly being a team move, which saw quick distribution from the keeper then passes across the back before a piercing ball up the line to the winger whose first time cross was gleefully met on the slide from the attacking midfielder.
A difficult day for the kids today who applied themselves well. Referee was superb today, plenty of patience in a game that stopped and started quite a lot. Well done kids; enjoy the rest of Sunday.
