Garstang: Buildbase FA Vase preview

Submitted by Tim Robinson on Wednesday, 31 October 2018

Swaz and his team look forward to this Saturday’s FA Vase tie at Lancashire side Garstang.

Swaz

Looking back at how we’ve done in the Vase over the past few seasons, it still pains me that we haven’t progressed further. Looking ahead however, this is a great opportunity for the lads to realise their potential and possibly go even further than the Fifth Round. Garstang will be well up for this game and it will give them a welcome break from the league, which has been a bit indifferent for them. Saying that, I have all confidence in my squad. If we prepare correctly, apply ourselves, stick to what we do best and go out and enjoy it, we will be in the draw for the next round.

The Brooks Mileson Memorial League Cup match at Crook Town, scheduled to be played this Wednesday, 31 October, has been put back two weeks and will now be played on Wednesday, 14 November, with a 7:30pm kick-off. This is due to ongoing remedial work to Crook Town's floodlights.

Highlights from Saturday's away draw to Consett. 
Sunderland RCA looked in control after Larkin and Davison gave them a two goal cushion, but a late comeback from the home-side meant that both teams had to settle with a point each.

It’s Garstang in the Buildbase FA Vase

Submitted by Tim Robinson on Monday, 15 October 2018

We have drawn Garstang away in the Second Round of the Buildbase FA Vase. The tie will be played on Saturday, 3 November. Garstang play in Division One North (Level 10 / Step 6, equivalent to Northern League Division 2) of the Hallmark Security League, aka the North West Counties Football League, 

In the first round, the Lancashire club - situated about half way between Lancaster and Preston - beat Sheffield based Swallowsnest 4-3 on penalties after the match finished 1-1.

RCA's Assistant Manager, Gary Errington, looks forward to the Bridlington match.

Here we are again and another Wembley dream starts for us at RCA. The FA Vase always brings great anticipation to the club and to the Northern League in general with the success of recent years. Today we welcome our visitors Bridlington to Meadow Park. We know they are going to be a very tough test for us today.

The past few weeks have been have been a mixed bag for us where results are concerned. Losing a Ryhope derby was tough for us as it means so much to the boys and then another defeat to Shildon three days later put us in a situation where the next game was a must win for us. The leaders and great characters in the dressing room made sure that happened which then continued into the following game against a good Bishop Auckland side. These two victories set us up nicely for today’s game.

The squad has a great togetherness and the dressing room is a good place to be with competition all over for the starting 11, which should stand us in good stead for what we want to achieve. But as the saying goes “one game at a time."

Hopefully we can give the RCA faithful something to cheer about today with a good performance and us in the hat for the Second Round draw. I can promise everyone will give their all as anything else isn’t tolerated.

Cheers

Gee
