Latest News


End of an Era – 23.06.19 We unfortunately received the sad news that the team is to be disbanded due to several factors leaving the team unable to continue in the coming season. Given this we would like to give a massive thank you to Shane Henry who has given so much of his time up to coach and manage the boys from June 2013 to present. Also a massive thanks to the parents whom without them and their accompanying support whether it be on the sidelines or fundraising for the boys, the team could not have survived either. Finally a big thanks must go out to all the players who have contributed on the pitch over the years and especially to the boys who remained from day 1 whom all provided us with some fantastic memories with much  laughter and some tears shed over the years on those freezing cold Sunday mornings to those blistering hot summer tournament days. Good luck to the boys in joining new teams and we wish them well hoping they have the same successes as they did here with our Yellows Family.

For one last time – Come on you Yellows!!!


Transfer News – 14.06.19  We have 3 summer departures from last seasons squad with Ethan Hobson, Leo Whalley and Tom Birtles all leaving the Yellows. A big thank you to Ethan & Leo who are original members of the team from way back in 2013 and have clocked up over 200 appearances between them over the last 6 seasons and will be sorely missed. Also thanks goes to Tom who is returning to his former team after a solid season with the yellows even scooping this seasons merit award. We wish all the best to the 3 lads for the coming season with their respective new teams.

Player of the Year Awards June 2019 – 08.06.19 Congratulations to Archie Smith who won Managers Player of the Year, Jake Toase winning Players Player of the Year & Tom Birtles taking the Merit Award. All 3 players fully deserve their awards after solid seasons with some great individual performances.

Fixture Changes – 04.02.19 There have been new changes to the teams 2018/2019 fixture list. Please refer to full revised fixture list above for new confirmed dates.

Transfer News – 01.01.19 Brooklyn Joyce has left us to return to his former club TIBBS for the 2nd half of the season. We wish him well and good luck as he moves on.

Goodbye Zach – 16.09.18 We again unfortunately have to say goodbye to another valuable member of Shane’s squad as we all wish Zach Masters good luck as he moves abroad for a new life in Turkey. Zach signed off his final game today by wearing the captains armband for the 2nd half and creating the final goal of the game to put the seal on a fine team performance. 

      Zach leaves the field for the final time in an STFC shirt through the now traditional under 12’s guard of honor.


Transfer News – 02.09.18. Shane has been very busy in this summers transfer market making several new signings to bolster the squad along with the return of some familiar faces whilst also there has been a few outgoings.

A big welcome to goalkeeper Joel Easby and midfielder Tom Birtles who have both moved across from our U12 Royals team. Also returning to their old stomping ground are striker Jack Spears after a season away in academy football and Dylan Smith a defensive midfielder who previously played for our Blues team before moving on to Leven AFC. Joining the boys are three players who are new to Stockton Town, Dan Dryden moves over from one of our old rivals NASA bringing an impressive goal scoring record to bolster our attack along with him are attacking midfielders Brooklyn Joyce joining us from TIBBs and Ethan Connoly who joins back up with his former team mate Jake Toase.  A warm welcome to all.

Leaving us are Bradley Hughes, Kai Davies, Ethan Aspin who all served us last season  to whom we would like to pass out thanks on and wish good look for future footballing ventures.

Finally one name we are sad to lose unfortunately due to family relocation is Oumar Diayallo who has been with us since the formation of the team in June 2013. He played his last game for us away to Leven and was fitting he scored the last goal of the game with a sublime chip in a 3-0 win. He left with a signed shirt from the team, a guard of honour and also a few tears – he gets a big thanks from Shane & Shayne and his team mates for his great service over the last 5 years and we all wish him well for the future.


Tournament Winners Again – 22.07.18 The team again showed why they love playing the Norton Summer Tournament by lifting the cup they won in 2015 and also runners up in 2016. The boys were solid all the way through and beat a strong Guisborough side in the semis with a last minute extra time winner to then go on and beat Redcar 2-0 who were the only team to beat us earlier in the day.

Flamingo Land Tour May 2016 – 22.05.16 A successful weekend away for all, where over the course of 2 days of football the boys finished runners up in their group and progressed to meet the group winner in the final. Some great football was played throughout the days and only 2 very late goals saw the boys end up on the losing side in the final meaning they brought home the runners up trophy. Well done boys !!

Stockton Town FC Visit to LFC Academy – 04.04.16 – The boys trip to Liverpool was an experience of a lifetime that they will not forget. The team play some games against the Liverpool academy boys with the 1st game ending up a tight 2-1 loss and the 2nd game 7-3 to LFC but this did not spoil the boys day as they enjoyed it as a whole.

Thirteen Group Donation 22.01.16 – A big thank you to Linda Bacon & the Thirteen Group who have made a generous contribution of £250.00 to the team funds which I am sure will be put to good use over the coming months – www.thirteengroup.co.uk

Stockton Town Tournament 29.08.15 – The boys came close to bagging their 3rd trophy of the summer as they just fell short in the final losing out to a single goal in extra time against Whinney Banks meaning they could not retain the trophy which the won last year. Never mind boys now for the real competition of the league.

Billingham Utd Tournament 26.07.15 – For the second time in the space of a week the boys bagged themselves another trophy, this time following a league basis tournament at Billingham in which the boys won all their 7 games and again only conceding one goal all day. Leo scored the only goal in the final game to maintain their 100% record on the day meaning captain Archie Smith was able to lead the boys along the long climb up the steps to receive the cup Wembley style – STFC will be needing a new trophy cabinet before long – again well done boys !!!

NASA Tournament 19.07.15 – The boys won the NASA summer tournament following a 5-1 final win after extra time over Boro Rangers courtesy of a Jack Spears hat-trick and goals from Ethan Hobson & Leo Whalley.

TJFA Cup Update 17.05.15 – The boys made their debut at Hurworth on Sunday in the TJFA league cup final. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be that they got their hands on another cup after going down 5-2 in a match that does not reflect the scoreline. On another day the 2 shots that hit the post at 0-0 may have went in, but the boys were gracious in defeat and were not downbeat. So a big WELL DONE to Shane & the boys – roll on next season.

Summer Tournaments 2015 – All pre-season summer tournaments are now complete in readiness for the new season. Any 2016 info will appear here in due course.

MFC Matchday Stars Update – 08.02.15 – What an amazing day for our team on Saturday over at the Riverside for Middlesbrough’s game v Charlton.

Our Under 8 Yellows team had the privilege of leading the whole Boro team out onto the pitch for the start of the game. As you can see from the video link below they clearly enjoyed it by some of the beaming faces on the boys whilst walking out with their heroes.

They even made a brief appearance on the BBC Football League show.
