Shields set for Stockton test in latest pre-season friendly

Shields set for Stockton test in latest pre-season friendly

South Shields will take on their third Northern League opposition of pre-season on Wednesday when they travel to Stockton Town.

Stockton led the Northern League and were well on course for promotion when the 2019-20 season was curtailed, and defeated the Mariners in the Durham Challenge Cup in January.

Lee Picton and Graham Fenton are therefore expecting a difficult test against the Anchors in a game which will be played in front of 150 supporters.

The tickets have been snapped up by Stockton season ticket holders, with no tickets to be available on the day of the match.

The game will kick-off at 7.30pm and the club is hoping to live stream it, although logistical challenges are expected and more details will be announced closer to the time of the match.

South Shields squad (from): Myles Boney, Aaron Steavens, Blair Adams, Craig Baxter, Gary Brown, Josh Croft, Dillon Morse, Wouter Verstraaten, Mathew Wade, Robert Briggs, Josh Gillies, Will Jenkins, Alex Kempster, Nathan Lowe, Will McCamley, Callum Ross, Arron Thompson, Jason Gilchrist, Sam Hodgson, Trialist.
