It finished Stockton Town 2-0 Ashington. Attendance 290.

Stockton made five changes from side that beat Liversedge at the weekend as the fixtures continue come thick and fast.

Stockton got of to a flyer with Nathan Mulligan putting Stockton one up on the 5 minute from the penalty spot after Cieran Jackson jinked his way into the box before he was brought down.

The early goal allowed Stockton to control the game and despite having most of the ball many chance were missed to increase the lead until a great move down the right involving Cieran Jackson and Lewis King before they found Cameron Wilson and his cross ended up at Max Craggs before he put to the feet of Peter Bulmer who curled it past Adam McHugh into the far corner to make it 2-0 on the 71 minute.

The number 4 for Stockton looks a cracking player. Just sits deep and controls the game. Doesn't waste a ball and always looks to go forward if it's on. Overall a good game to watch. Think I'll go to the away game at guiseley in the F.A cup. 👍 thumbs up from me

That is Tom Portas you talking about. He is very good player that seems make the game look easy.

Stockton have a very good squad. There was some very good players that didn't play to night.

I would have liked to got to this weekends FA Vase game Durham City vs Stockton Town but I still have my Boro season ticket so will be at the Boro vs Reading game.

Durham City have been struggling this season so I would expect those that haven't been getting to much game time to be involved again.

I'll be going to Guiseley for the FA Cup game on 21st because the Boro are away at Cardiff.

Stockton Town are currently playing at Step 5 of the National League System so need 5 promotions to get to the football League. So it's long way off.

How the Structure of the football pyramid looks to teams from North East from Stockton Town level to the Premier League.

1. Premier League
2. English Football League : Championship
3. English Football League : League One
4. English Football League : League Two
5. National League (NLS Step 1)
6. National League: North (NLS Step 2)
7. Northern Premier League : Premier Division (NLS Step 3)
8. Northern Premier League : Division One North West (Northern) (NLS Step 4)
9. Northern League : Division One (Stockton Town's current league) (NLS Step 5)

The ground could prove to be a problem if success is continued over the next few years.

To get to the National League (NLS Step 1), you need a minimum capacity of 4,000, the National League North (NLS Step 2) 3,000, Northern Premier League Prem Division (NLS Step 3) 1,950. Stocktons current capacity is 1800.

You are right that ground grading can become a major issue for clubs in the National League System. However Stockton Town's set-up is a good base to start from and lots grants will be made available to clubs like Stockton Town.

The Football Stadia Improvement Fund provides money for clubs in The FA National League System who want to improve their facilities for players, officials and spectators.

The eligibility of projects and grant limits available are dependent on the step of The FA National League System your club plays at.

Grant limits for The FA National League System clubs (applies to any five year period)
Clubs in The FA National League System - Maximum cumulative grant value* - Maximum percentage grant
Step 1 - £400,000 - 70%
Step 2 - £250,000 - 70%
Steps 3 and 4 - £150,000 - 70%
Steps 5 and 6 - £100,000 - 70%
Step 7 £20,000 - (but up to £50,000 for applications including changing rooms) - 70%

* This is the maximum grant available, less any previous grants awarded by the FSIF whilst at any other level over the previous five years.

I would have thought the capacity was higher than 1800.

The 20017-18 FA Vase run allowed Stockton to see how everything worked with regards to crowds.

Marske United 0–2 Stockton Town Attendance: 1,500 (Game was made all ticket and capacity was set at 1500 for the game)
Note: Match played at Stockton Towns Bishopton Road West Ground, due to Marske United's ground being waterlogged.


24 March 2018 Semi-final Second Leg
Stockton Town 1–2 (3–2 agg.) Marske United Attendance: 1,800 (Game was made all ticket and capacity was set at 1800 for the game).

Note as far as I know everything went well and they was enough room in the club house/bars refreshment areas, No car parking issues, still lots space in the ground.

I thought Stockton Town took a well measured approach to games and looked at how they would deal with the crowds in and around the ground, club house/Bar refreshment areas and car parking etc.

The biggest factors would have been costs of Police, Stewards, Medical cover.

MEDICAL Requirements

There must be a nominated and suitably qualified person in attendance to assist with spectator problems unless the St John Ambulance Brigade, Red Cross Society or other capable agency are in attendance. The requirements of the Guide to Safety at Sports Grounds are for one first aider per 1000 anticipated spectators, with a minimum of two.

If a crowd of less than 2000 is anticipated, known and practiced arrangements should be in place to summon either a doctor or NHS ambulance alternative. For crowds of over 2000, an experienced crowd doctor should be in attendance.
NB The above in no way purports to be a comprehensive list of Health and Safety issues which it is the responsibility of a club to address. Clubs are recommended to arrange regular safety audits conducted by persons with the appropriate expertise.

Great to see the efforts of those involved at Stockton being rewarded. The crowd the other night was decent too.

Tom Portas is a cracking player to have at this level.

I think the hard work and efforts for all those involved in local Non League football is starting to pay off. The turn around at Billy Town and Thornaby has been great and it looks like Sinners are rebuilding nicely. There has been some tough years for those clubs and at one point I thought all 3 might have folded or dropped out of the Northern League. It is good to see the hard work is starting to pay off for those who continued to fight on through the darker days.

Redcar Athletic seem to have set out from a good base and look as they are ready to progress to Northern League Division one.

It is also good to see Norton and Stockton ancients have re-started a senior team this season. They are playing in the Wearside League Division Two. Hopefully they will race they way back to Northern League.

During these tough times Marske United have grown stronger and have been a great side to watch. They look like they will be pushing for promotion to Step 3 this season.

The ground is not suitable for this level. They cant even use the PA system to announce subs etc. due to neighbour complaints, council restrictions.
The original plan was a partnership between the club, 6th Form and St Bedes School and tgere was to be a stadium for the first team on St Bedes pitches and a seperate 3G but St Bedes became an academy and ripped up the council agreements and told the club to basically sod off.
This after £50,000 worth of work had already been done. The school said they could only proceed if the school had complete control over the 3G and all of the income from it.
It cost the club promotion to the Northern League and the compromise was the combined 3G/ stadium.

I wouldn't say the grounds not suitable for this level just because the planning approval doesn't allow the club to use the PA system to announce team / subs / play music etc. In fact I would say it is one of the best and most suitable grounds at this level not just in the Northern League. The crowds are proof that it is a good location for this level.

The current site has limitations but it is a great site until club outgrows it.

Stockton Town were made to jump through hoops during planning application because of few local kicking up a fuss. Some of which was valid points but some were non-valid points points. Because of this the council seemed to have went overboard with lots of planning approval subject to conditions put in place.

Many of the 15 conditions have already been discharged or have been amended by the council.

I assume that club didn't feel need to make a application/request to remove or amend condition 12. Because it wasn't that important a issue at the level the club was at. It is something the club most likely try to change when it submits future planning applications.

To play music it would also cost the club money because they would be required to have a music licence that grants them permission to play the copyrighted songs.

This is condition 12.

"12. Amplified music and public address system.

There shall be no amplified music played at the pitch or within the amenity block hereby approved. The use of any tannoy or similar system at the pitches shall be restricted for the use of emergency public announcements only and for no other purpose.

Reason: In order to prevent undue noise pollution in accordance with the guidance of the National Planning Policy Framework."

Don't stockton also owe the council an amount of money for a loan took out to improve the current ground?

I agree non league North Eastern football is on the rise. Spennymoor doing well last season although they havent started great this year. Darlo still trying to make it back to league football. South Shields throwing money at the club and from what I've heard looking to go full time next season. Marske have significantly improved their ground for this season in preparation for hopefully following Morpeth up into step 3. Personally speaking I think once you reach step 3 it gets incredibly hard to go further but a lot easier to stay a step 3 club due to the top calibre of players playing in the north.

"Don't stockton also owe the council an amount of money for a loan took out to improve the current ground?"

I'm not sure what the situation with regards loans etc. I know a lot of the funding has come from sports grants. I think the amount invested is over £2.5 million.

The clubs facilities are also used by the students at Stockton Sixth College and Our Lady & St Bede Catholic Academy (secondary school). The clubhouse also has class room and dance studio/performance space.


The Club House

"In April of 2008 Stockton Town moved into it’s new facilities on Bishopton Road West in Stockton. These facilities were built in partnership with the Football Foundation, Stockton 6th Form College, Our Lady & St Bedes School and Stockton Town Football Club. In total the Project Cost was almost £1.4 million pounds, with close to £200,000 spent on the drainage of the Pitches and the remainder on the new building containing 6 new Changing Rooms, 2 Officials Changing Rooms, Education Room, Club Room and Drama / Dance Studio."



The Ground

"The new £1m facility in Stockton provides Stockton Town FC and Stockton Sixth Form College are thrilled with the new 3G artificial grass pitch and stadium It includes dug outs, floodlighting, and spectator stand - providing the “best sporting facilities outside professional football in the North-east”.


The Bishopton Road West facility will be completed in July 2016 with the addition of new changing blocks, toilets, modern refreshments room and a standing & seated spectator stands.

The £1m third generation (3G) artificial grass pitch and stadium is a joint development between Stockton Town Football Club and Stockton Sixth Form College.

It will be shared between the club and college, with additional time set aside for community use."

How are Marske getting along with the planned ground improvements. I saw they had plans for alterations to the existing football stadium including new turnstiles, toilet block, 1 covered seating stands(capacity 50), 1 standing stand(capacity 100) and scoreboard. Also plan to replace the 2 dugouts with new 2 dugouts.

Last time I was there everything you mentioned has been done with then exception of one of the stands which will be completed before the end of the season I was told.

Were very unlucky against Scarborough over the two fa cup ties.

The step up to level 3 is definitely massive. There is a huge leap in the quality of the teams. Took Shields a good while to adapt last season and it cost them promotion. They haven’t started amazingly this season too.

Last time I was at Mount Pleasant was for the Marske United vs Stockton Town game. It was good game Marske won 1-0 and got present with Northern League title after the game.

Back then it was just the 2 covered stands either side of the half-way line. Main stand was about 100 seats and Tin shed end about 200 standing capacity, the next to corner flag was the little accessible stand.
