Colin Larkin on the attack during the second half of the match.
Today we take on Guisborough Town at the Sunderland LGV Park for this crucial EBAC Northern League Division 1 fixture.
A must win game for RCA to avoid relegation while the “Priorymen” who hadn’t won any of their last six matches would be looking to do the double over us having won 2-1 earlier in the season.
A two week break since their draw with Pickering Town was not ideal preparation for this match, but Martin has been able to put together a very strong looking squad.
Prior to the match an award was made to Craig Hodgson who has played 150 games for the club and who was called out of retirement along with a number of other players to help the cause.
The teams lined up as follows:
Sunderland RCA: Wilkinson, Davis, Goundry, Hodgson, Swansbury, Trewick, Leonard, Larkin, Callen, Bruton, Turns: Subs: Pinder, Herdman, Ene, Younis, Lennox.
Guisborough Town: Cowey, Cann, Miller, Marron, Hood, O’Sullivan, Fielding, Green, McGee, Frazer, Blackford: Subs: Kiernan, Martin, Williams, Bell.
