Mark Davison plays the ball to Jonathan Carr during the second half of the match.
Third placed North Shields were the visitors to Sunderland LGV Park for this EBAC Northern League fixture.
After the problems caused by Storm Arwen last week it was a testament to the RCA ground staff that the pitch and the spectator areas were in such good order, a great effort by Dave, George and Graham.
RCA made one change to the team that beat Guisborough Town bringing in the experienced Chris Winn for Michael Annang-Colquhoun.
Unfortunately the run of bad luck continues to blight club captain Greg Swansbury who is now isolating awaiting the results of a PCR Covid test.
The teams lined up as follows:
Sunderland RCA: Marrs, Jakab, Charlton, Hawkins ©, Errington, Hennis, Lawrence, Carr, Davison, Weirs, Winn. Subs: Richardson, Annang-Colquhoun, Allen, Hunter, Ball.
North Shields: Marshall, Cartwright, McDonald, Ormeston, Myers, Walkers, Robinson, Forster ©, Wilson, Cunningham, Hird. Subs: Cassidy, Leonard, Smith, Paterson, Milburn.
