Sunderland RCA recorded their second Northern League victory of the season with a 4-2 win at newly-promoted Chester-le-Street - which included a "perfect" hat-trick from striker Stephen Callen. Stephen scored with left foot and right foot shots in the first-half, before completing his hat-trick with a powerful header in the second. Great stuff!

RCA are pleased to announce their latest signings.

Liam McBryde (Striker) returns to RCA after spells at Hebburn and Seaham Red Star:

Danni Lay (Central Defender) has signed after a pre season with Morpeth Town and youngster Lee Graydon (Utility) has joined the club after a number of appearances in pre-season.

A warm welcome to the three of them.

Mike Amos's Grass Routes

Submitted by Tim Robinson on Sunday, 31 July 2016
Here's some very good news: former Northern League Chairman, Mike Amos is continuing his blog, this time on an independent basis - that peculiarly English predisposition to shoot ourselves in our own feet led to the blog being discontinued on the Northern League web site.
Mike says:
"As with the original, Grass Routes will chiefly seek to promote the unique pleasures of Northern League football and of life and times in North-East England. As the name suggests, there will also be a public transport element – and like many of the bus services, it will probably make quite a few roundabout journeys. As with the original, it will seek chiefly to be an entertainment."

What a pre-season this is turning out to be.
