Stockton Town’s Pre-Season preparations continue with a short trip to Norton. 

The Anchors earned their first victory of Pre-Season on Wednesday night with a 4-1 win over Sunderland RCA.

It was good evening for the two new strikers as Michael Sweet and Michael Fowler both scored in the second half.

It was an excellent reaction to a 1-0 defeat to Guisborough Town last Saturday.


Despite their close proximity, Stockton Town and Norton & Stockton Ancients have only met twice.

27 Aug 2016- Norton & Stockton Ancients 2-4 Stockton Town- Northern League Division Two

03 Aug 2022- Norton & Stockton Ancients 1-4 Stockton Town- Pre-Season Friendly


This is the final Pre-Season Friendly for Norton ahead of their Wearside League campaign which kicks off next Saturday.

The Pre-Season Friendlies they have played have been full of goals. Last Saturday they drew 3-3 at Billingham Synthonia and the Saturday prior they were 5-3 winners at Grangetown.


Looking ahead to the game, Assistant Manager JD Briggs said:

“We just want to build on what we have done against Sunderland RCA with the good feelings and the confidence that is going through the team after a win.

“We have lot of personnel missing so we will have to rejig quite a bit. We’re really looking forward to playing another game.”
