New Football Secretary and Physio

Submitted by Simon Mears on Monday, 12 February 2018
The club are delighted to be able to announce two major signings to strengthen the team, off the field. 
Chris Lowther, formerly Secretary and Chairman for many years at Prudhoe Town of the Wearside League and previously the Northern League will be joining as Football Secretary, and Rachel Davison, previously at Esh Winning, among other clubs, will be joining as Physio. Both have a wealth of experience, skills and knowledge of local football and will be invaluable additions to the Club’s back room staff. They will take up their duties at Saturday's home game with North Shields.
Everyone at Sunderland RCA welcomes Chris and Rachel and looks forward to working with them.  

Football Secretary and new Committee members wanted

Sunderland RCA FC of the EBAC Northern League is looking to recruit new committee members.

A well run club, based in Ryhope, Sunderland, and established in the First Division of the EBAC Northern League, RCA particularly need a new Football Secretary, preferably, though not essentially, with some experience of football administration. Lots of support is available for this excellent opportunity, ideal for someone who wants to play an active role in local football administration at a really good standard, maybe stepping up from Sunday or lower level football.

The club is also looking for other new committee members to join our team and help with a range of roles from grounds maintenance and upkeep to match day duties around the ground and clubhouse. Great football, and a good atmosphere. 

Anyone interested in joining Sunderland RCA as an active committee member should contact Colin Wilson on or 07802 523533.
