I picked it up from Stockton's twitter feed.  The quote was as below. I read it initially that 'back home' meant that Mr Jones had re-joined Stockton. On re-reading perhaps he was just passing through and fancied a run out?  I am sure someone will enlighten us

"Fantastic to welcome our former Newcastle Falcons, Exeter Chiefs, Edinburgh and Scotland star, Stephen Jones back home to his rugby family https://t.co/XLm0q80n4x "

A friend of mine reffed the game and said he was a cut above anyone else on the pitch. It's nice when players who do well come back to play at their junior clubs, doesn't happen so much now.

I wasn't around on Saturday, so I can't tell you whether a Steve has signed or not. What I can tell you is that he played all his junior rugby at Stockton and has always retained his links with the Club.

Stockton that low? I thought they were a very strong team last season, they had a few off weeks but good young players. I certainly see them in top half, if not in the mix for top 3!

Stockton appear to have signed a Stephen Jones who has played for Premiership teams and Scotland A.  I believe he is 34 now but probably still very effective at DN1 level.  I'd imagine they will be targeting a higher league place now.

I think this is the chap but there are various Stockton posters on here that can correct this if wrong. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Jones_(rugby_player_born_1983)

Stockton beat Bishop Auckland 61-20 at Grangefield over 3 X 30 minutes.  Both sides were short of front line players ( Stockton 7 first choice forwards) but gave the opportunity to play youngsters coming up from (and still in ) the Colts teams

what was final score for Seaton V Shire?
Doesn't look like there was much defence on show yesterday. Well not in our game anyway, good run out though.

Winlaton 51 v 46 Houghton.

Good game but very much preseason fodder, impressed with Houghton's young backs who are quick and direct out wide. This may be a good season for Houghton if they can cut out the penalties.
