Last year's scheduled friendly was cancelled due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the Whitby squad, however the last visit to Stockton was one to forget as the Blues went down 3-0 in 2019.

The two sides also faced each other at the Towbar Express Stadium @ The Turnbull Ground the following summer, in another game where Stockton grabbed the upper hand, winning 2-1.

The game against Michael Dunwell's men, who lost out in the Pitching In Northern Premier League Division One East play-off final to Marske United last season promises to provide yet another stern test for Whitby.
