Stockton Town are set to make their first ever visit to the Dransfield Stadium to face North Ferriby. 

The Anchors head into the game off the back of last weekend’s thrilling victory over Cleethorpes Town, which saw the Anchors come from behind twice in the first half, and a 96th minute winner from Kevin Hayes lifted the faces of Stockton fans after Cleethorpes thought they’d salvaged a point in the 93rd minute.

Michael Fowler, Mikey Roberts, Stephen Thompson and Kevin Hayes got the goals for the Anchors to keep the lead over Belper Town at the top at six points. 


Stockton and North Ferriby met for the first time back at the MAP Group UK Stadium in September. 

Here is the result from that game:

The Villagers are having a fine inaugural season in step four, sitting in 7th place, only one point outside of the playoffs.

Chris Bolder’s side are coming into the game against the Anchors on a four-game winning streak, three in the league and one in the county cup.

North Ferriby’s forwards are very dangerous, with two players inside the top 15 in the goalscoring standings. Danny Earl has 10 goals to his name, with Tom Corner just behind him on nine. 


Anchors gaffer Michael Dunwell spoke ahead of the trip to North Ferriby after the delight of last weekend by saying:

“It’s another tough game, it’s a nice surface there and a nice setup so it might suit us and how we like to get down to play.”

“It feels like we haven’t played away for a while, we played at Dunston, but we haven’t had a long trip for a while, and this is a ground we’ve never played at as a club so it’s something new, something different there”.

“They’re another team who’ve picked up lately, sitting just outside the playoffs, so it’s going to be another tough game, all the games are because everyone is going to want to beat us because of where we are. We’ve just got to kick on and see if we can go on another winning run.”
