Norton confident ahead of new season
 Women's Football News 22 Aug 2014
Norton & Stockton Ancients begin the new season in Northern Division One of the Premier Legaue full of confidence following the last few seasons which have seen back to back promotion and a runners-up place in the National Futsal Championships held at the Copper Box. 
It is a great achievement for the club who play their games at Norton Sports Complex and with several teams of all ages, players have the opportunity to grow and develop with the side.
Norton captain Kate McGuire said: "It has been a good pre-season, we have had the chance to test ourselves against local teams including Whitley Bay, Consett and Newcastle. A highlight was also being part of the England v Sweden friendly at Hartlepool as our players were ball girls and met Fran Kirby and Jordan Nobbs." Jordan had spent time playing for Norton during her early career.
Mick Mulligan, Norton's Manager and Chairman is proud of his team's achievements. "It's been an incredible journey and we have always aimed to be as professional as possible at Norton and have other teams look up to us in how we are run," he said.
"We have always had that friendly rivalry with Middlesbrough but see ourselves as an equal - our pitch benefits from full time ground staff and is noted on its quality on opposition.
"Everything we've done we've done ourselves and I'm lucky that the players I have pay to play as this provides us with the finances to invest in kit. Since gaining promotion, winning the cup and the futsal finals, there's been a huge uptake of contact locally asking about attending a match, and more importantly looking to support the team."
Norton's first game of the season is Sunday 24th August against fellow league newcomers Guiseley AFC Vixens (2pm kick off) at Norton.
