Middlesbrough help out Stockton Town ahead of Wembley final
Middlesbrough are giving Stockton Town a helping hand ahead of the non-league's appearance at Wembley next month.
The Ebac Northern League Division One team are looking to end the season on a high in the North-East before heading to Wembley – six days before the Championship play-off final – to face Thatcham Town in the Buildbase FA Vase final on May 20.
The Northern Echo has revealed Boro will be doing what they can to help by lending them a couple of scouts in the run-up to enable the Anchors to run the rule over Thatcham.
Gary Gill, Boro’s head of senior recruitment, said: “One of our guys who works on recruitment is Pete Bulmer. He also plays for Marske United, who faced Stockton in the semi-final. That was where it all started, we got in touch with Marske through Pete.”
