Stockton Town maintained their 100 per cent record in the ENL with a 3-1 home win over North Shields tonight.

Stockton had keeper Callum Roberts dismissed for a last man foul just before half time, but six minutes after the break, they took the lead when James Risborough got around the back of the defence, and Jamie Owens turned the ball home.

Kevin Hayes dribbled through and scored the second on 56 minutes, then after Nathan Mulligan missed a penalty for the hosts, Owens headed a third for the ten men.

Gareth Bainbridge pulled a goal back three minutes from time from the spot.
