Well first and foremost lets hope we get good news on Alf Gibbons who took a bad turn at our game yesterday. The old fella has been a RCA supporter since well before me and has enjoyed recent seasons. Great response from the Emergency Services who were there very prompt as well. Update all soon.
All confusing with a Whitley Bay player being stretchered off at the same time. In fact carrying him round to the changing room..he was worried about spending christmas in a Sunderland hospital. All confused.com....yes I cetainly was. Confused opening the new modern stretcher as well. Whats wrong with the old deck chair one we used to use...lot quicker as well !
Anyway in the brief glimpses of the game I caught yesterday proud of honest efforts of our lads. Luck was on our side today and the Bay lads will be very puzzled how they went home empty handed.
I did catch our second goal slotted home by Robbo one of the clubs former U18 youth players. Good blend of home grown now local lads all better than their Dads by the way as well. Gregg centre half but even a better forward than his Da...Tadger ! RCA good times in deed and a day out at Mansfield in the new year. Could not be better.
Well it could be.... the RCA players are doing their bit...even folding their strips and helping us tidy at the end of matches. DIFFERENT breed these boys...top dollar. But they deserve more Home attendance support. Thats where local friends and families need a nudge to get to Meadow Park. Ross P brings a mini bus full....gr8 stuff.....but ...Where are we !
Lets spread the word for the Boxing Day Ryhope Derby..might be free DELIA mince pies. Sweet mince by the way....dont panic Defty.
Anyway enough Beef..lets enjoy the Season..at the moment we are still on the wembley trail. History last year in making last 16....ALL THE BEST......and watch this space.
