Goalscorers: SRCA: Gordon, Melvin, Coe. N&S Ancients: Braithwaite
RCA’s selection woes improved slightly today with the signing of Joe Melvin from South Shields and the return of Tony Coe and was further helped when Kevin Gordon past a fitness test before the game.
With most of the management team unavailable, it fell to Gee Errington to select the team and his selection saw McNab switch to left back in place of Richardson, he also gave a debut to Melvin who would partner Gordon up front with Hope switching to the left wing.
Norton and Stockton Ancients included ex-SRCA player Harrison Davies in their team.
