Anchors Drawn At Home To Shildon In Emirates FA Cup

Stockton Town have been drawn at home to fellow Northern League Division One side Shildon in the Extra Preliminary Round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Michael Dunwell’s side made it to the Second Qualifying Round of the competition last season, beating Nostell MW, Northallerton Town and Liversedge along the way.

The Anchors faced Shildon twice during the 2019-20 season, before it was curtailed, and beat them on both occasions – also keeping two clean-sheets.

The game is scheduled to take place on Tuesday 1 September – the date set by the FA – at the MAP Group UK Stadium, behind closed doors.

The winner of the game between Stockton and Shildon will be away to Northallerton Town or Billingham Town in the Preliminary Round.
