Stockton Town Visit NL 1 Newton Aycliffe

Our 1st team travel to Northern League Division 1 side Newton Aycliffe tonight in the Durham Challange Cup.

This will be a tough task for us against a team 2 divisions higher and will be a good benchmark for Manager Michael Dunwell. Stockton have enjoyed some success in the competition in recent years but have never managed to claim victory over a team as high as this before.

We have a Michael Arthur, Sonni Coleman and Scott Meehan missing through long term injuries but other than that we will have a full squad to choose from.
