RCA were without Reece Noble through suspension so the management team brought in Lee Cresswell to replace him, there was also a place in the starting line up for Liam Hatch and the welcome return from injury of Stephen Callen.
Without a competitive game since 22 December 2015, the RCA management team had arranged a mid week friendly at Billingham Town, unfortunately this caused a selection problem for today when James Armstrong picked up a thigh injury and was ruled out of today’s important FA vase clash against Sleaford Town.
A special mention should once again go to the ground staff, who have worked wonders just to get the pitch in a playable condition.
