The weather gods shone for a while on “Sunderland LGV Park” and the efforts of the ground staff over the last couple of days was rewarded with a match.
RCA, without a League win since beating Thornaby on 3rd September, were without the services of both Swansbury and C Davis who are suspended, while, Hodgson, Allen, Charlton, and Davison were all unavailable through injury. The Management team made wholesale changes to the side beaten by Spennymoor in mid-week.
It was therefore a much changed team who faced bottom of the league Northallerton Town, in came Ramshaw for his debut alongside Lawson and Hennis while Dorward moved to right back.
The teams lined up as follows:
