Goalscorers - Runcorn: Wellstead. RCA: Elliott.
Sunderland RCA made the long trip to Runcorn Linnets for the FA Vase Second Round tie. Runcorn had won their previous Vase match against fellow Northern League Division One side Team Northumbria after a replay. For RCA, this was our first taste of Vase football this season after being exempt from the previous rounds for reaching the Fifth Round last season.
RCA made three changes to the side that beat West Auckland Town on Tuesday - Reece Noble and Adam McGuinness returned in defence, replacing Luke Richardson and Ross McNab, and Colin Larkin, injured early on in Tuesday's match, was ruled out and replaced by James Armstrong.
The two sides lined up as follows:
Runcorn: Holmes; Atherton; Lawton; Morris; Moore; Nolan; Simpson; Hamid (c); Houghton; Shanley; Wellstead.
RCA: Finch; Noble; Hodgson; McGuinness; Preston (c); Elliott; Callen; Page; O'Neill; Armstrong; Cassidy.
