On Saturday, 11 November, Sunderland RCA are in Buildbase FA Vase Second Round action with a trip to Runcorn Linnets. Kick-off is at 3pm.

Runcorn play their football in the North West Counties League, Premier Division and are currently sitting in second place in the table with 37 points from 17 matches played - winning 11 and losing just twice. They entered the Vase this season in the previous round, beating fellow Northern League Division One side Team Northumbria after a replay - the sides drew 1-1 at the Coach Lane Sports Complex, before Runcorn won the replay 3-2 at the Millbank Linnets Stadium. 

RCA, meanwhile, have lost just once in eight matches and got back to winning ways with an excellent 2-1 home win over West Auckland Town on Tuesday evening. Saturday's match will be RCA's first in this season's Vase competition after being exempt from previous rounds for reaching the Fifth Round last season, losing 3-2 to Newport Pagnell Town in extra-time after conceding an agonising 96th minute equaliser.

The winners of the match will receive £900 (losers £300) and take their place in the Third Round which is scheduled to be played on Saturday, 2 December.
