Northern League 1

Goal scorer Matty Weirs in the thick of the action.

Sunderland RCA made the trip south to play Northallerton Town at their Calvert Stadium for this EBAC Northern League Div I fixture.

After losing their last two matches 1-0, RCA were looking to bounce back against a Northallerton Town team languishing at the bottom of the table. However earlier in the season they had beaten us 3-2 so this was not going to be easy.

With the pitch looking to be on the heavy side of soft this would be a test of stamina for both teams.

The management team made changes from the team defeated in mid week by Crook Town.

 The teams lined up as follows:

Northallerton Town: Dawson, Marron ©, Hudson, Snook, Graham, Ryder, Chidanyika, Chapman, Rae, Stephenson, Hope. Subs: Thompson, Banks, Ramsbottom, Bruton.

Sunderland RCA: Marrs, Jakab, Charlton, Swansbury ©, Errington,   Hennis, Carr, Guy, Davison, Annang-Colquhoun, Weirs. Subs: Hoganson, Allen, Lawrence, Watts, Richardson.

Riley Report - January 2022

Good Afternoon

It been a long time since my last report and seems as if we haven’t played for at least a month, and they say a week is long time in football.

Unfortunately last week’s game had to be postponed due to a big outbreak in the squad with Covid including myself and members of coaching staff. We have been quite lucky that in the past it has just been a single individual that has caught it and we have still managed to field a side, but even if we had called up the youth players signed on we would have struggled to get 11 players on the pitch last week.

Thankfully most of our squad will now have had Covid so we are hoping that we have no more disruptions to our season because of it.

Well, hello there.

Been a fair old amount of time but here we are again, ready to crack on with this last stretch of the season. Not really fair to call it the second half as we would usually do, as we have already played twenty four of our thirty eight league games, due to the League’s decision to concentrate on the this and leave our local Cup competitions to the end of the season. Pretty wise move if you ask me.

It means that it feels like we have had something like a proper stretch of football after two badly disrupted years, which has allowed everybody, players, fans and clubs to get right back into the week by week swing of things.
