This was quickly followed by Stockton’s second. after a quick passing move down the left the ball was delivered into the box for Stav Roberts to turn home.Tony Johnson was then on hand to grab Stockton’s 3rd on the stroke of half time when he scrambled the ball home at the second attempt on 44 minutes.
The second half saw a midfield battle develop with Stockton comfortably seeing the game out. Under 18 Sonni Coleman came on for his second appearance in the 1st team.
