RCA welcomed today’s visitors from Cumbria, a Penrith team who have started the season reasonably well with 14 points from 8 games and lying 6th in the league.
Although our own form has been a bit inconsistent there are signs that we are getting there and with a bit of hard work and commitment we can get the consistency that the management team are looking for.
There were two changes to the team who fought out a good draw against Ashington on Tuesday night with Brown and Charlton replacing Hatch and Jury, with Gordon being moved to his more favoured striker’s role.
The teams took to the pitch in torrential rain with RCA having the advantage of the slope in the first half. In the opening minutes the ball seemed to be passed from goalkeeper to goalkeeper as both teams opted for a long ball approach to the game, however with the wind and the rain the ball was always going to be difficult to control.
