7th Feb: Darlington RA 2-4 Heaton Stan
Another great win on the road for the lads on Saturday. Goals from Rowntree, Ray, Jones and Grieveson gave us yet another 3 points. Thats now 6 games unbeaten in the league, 5 of which were away. We have now moved up to 8th place in the table and, hopefully, an FA Cup spot for next season on the horizon. Depending on how it works out we need to finish as high as possible in the table to make sure.
Thanks again to The Stan Army for great travelling support.
The only negative about the game was the Darlo player badly injured near the end of the game. Our best wishes go out to the lad and hopefully a speedy recovery.
4th Feb: Last Legs Challenge
When we face Crook on Wed 17th February, Northern League Chairman Mike Amos will be attending and is planning on walking 12 miles or so to raise money for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and community charities nominated by Northern League clubs. Known as the 'Last Legs Challenge' Mike is doing this to each of the 44 Northern League grounds during the season. The aim is to raise a minimum £10,000 – half for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation in memory of a wonderful man who was a great friend to the Northern League and to its clubs. The other half will be given, in £1,000 chunks, to community charities nominated by our clubs and drawn at next year’s annual dinner. We will have buckets on the day of the game for anyone who wishes to make a donation or if you wish to join some or all of the walk see Kevin Mochrie for details at either of our next 2 games. Equally if you wish you can make a donation via Just Giving or by cheques payable to the Northern Football League to Mike Amos at 8 Oakfields, Middleton Tyas, Richmond, North Yorks DL10 6SD.

31st Jan: The Stan 1-1 Tow Law
We kept our unbeaten run going yesterday thanks to an equaliser by Adam Rowntree from the penalty spot after going behind.
A big thank you goes out to Bill Colwill and all the ground staff who put a lot of effort into getting the pitch ready for the game.
29th Jan: Two More New Signings
The Stan would like to welcome two more new signings to the club. Mikel Thompson is a winger and George Philipson is a left sided player in defence or midfield. Thats probably all our business done now in this seasons transfer window so Jim White can leave Grounsell Park now and get over to St James Park!
24th Jan: Birtley Town 1-6 Heaton Stan
Another great away win and performance from the lads. Adam Rowntree's penalty in the first half was added to in the second half with goals from Ryan Bailey, Sam Grieveson, Peter Scott, Shane Jones and Rowntree again. Thanks once again for your great travelling support. Match report now online here.
22nd Jan: Another New Signing
Joining us from Newcastle Benfield is talented forward Shane Jones. We are now looking forward to the rest of the season with a much stronger squad than we started the season with.
Northumberland Senior Cup
The Stan won 3-0 away to Bedlington Terriers in the Quarter Final to join Blyth Spartans in the Semi-Finals of the Techflow Northumberland Senior Cup.
The two remaining Quarter Final ties still to be played are
Whitley Bay v Morpeth Town
North Shields v Ashington
Monday 12th October was the 80th anniversary of the first match played at Grounsell (formerly Newton) Park. The special guest at the nearest home match to the anniversary date (Hebburn on Saturday 17 October) was Jack Earnshaw who captained the Stan in the Northern League 1946-47.
