Welcome back to Meadow Park everyone for the start of 2018/19 season.
I’d just like to start by thanking everyone for last season - players, management team, committee, fans and sponsors - for all your support and commitment last season.
Finishing fourth was a huge achievement for us, a small club with limited resources, and it’s testament to everyone involved with the club. As people often say we are punching above our weight in this league. What we have is a team of hard working and dedicated committee, a fantastic group of players, a great management team and a superb set of fans which makes the club what it is today.
On the playing side we’ve managed to keep all the lads who we had last season and also added a few great additions. Mark ‘Sparky’ Davison is a top, top player who has joined us from Morpeth and needs no introduction to RCA. We’ve also signed Alex Ramshaw from Seaham, who’s a player we’ve all been impressed with pre-season. As we like to have a core of local lads at the club we’ve also signed some young exciting talent in Dom Moan, Sam Lilley, Sam Robinson and young Spanish keeper Andy Kokoska.
