Stockton Town look to get back to winning ways as Liversedge return to the MAP Group UK Stadium. 

Last weekend saw the Anchors fight from behind to secure a point at Bridlington Town.

Tom Coulthard’s second goal in as many games gave Michael Dunwell’s side the lead early on, but two goals either side of the half from the hosts saw the Anchors fall behind.

Michael Fowler‘s cool finish brought Stockton back level, and neither time could find a late winner in a game which saw Adam Nicholson sent off for Stockton.

The Stockton skipper will miss this game against Liversedge serving his one game suspension.

New signing Nathan Harker will be available for selection following the goalkeeper’s arrival from Marske United.


Stockton and Liversedge have faced off six times, dating back to long before the two met in the Northern Premier League East Division at the start of the 2021/22 season.

Liversedge were promoted into the Northern Premier League East Division alongside the Anchors in the restructure prior to the 2021/22 season. Sedge wasted no time getting to grips with the division, winning the title with an incredible 93 points.

But the higher division didn’t work out, and they were relegated in their first season in the Premier Division bringing them back to the East Division.

The visitors currently sit 14th in the table on 26 points, but have a couple of games in hand on the teams around them, and will still be targeting the playoffs in the second half of the season.

Despite their current league position, Liversedge boast a very strong squad. The clinical Alex Wollerton partners former Worksop Town striker Liam Hardy up front, with recent addition Eddie Church, who joined from Marske United, also dangerous in front of goal.
