Stokesley Sports Club FC is a non-league football club from the market town of Stokesley, which is located in North Yorkshire around town miles south of Middlesbrough. The club was formed in 1920.
The clubhouse was neat and tidy even though there was no real ale. I plumped for a bottle of Newcastle Brown after a warming cuppa as the room began to fill up with Boro fans. The travelling support supplied the majority of the crowd.
After a very pleasant morning and lunch in the town, including magnificent fish and chips at Mother Hubbard's, I headed down to Hull for the second match of my extravaganza; the EPL Cup semi-final between City and Manchester United.
