Sunderland RCA welcomed Whickham to LGV Park for this Northern League Division One match. RCA had been given a week off - due to Redcar Athletic’s midweek FA Cup replay - to recover following the superb 3-0 victory at Frickley Athletic in the FA Cup. Whickham, meanwhile, came into the match having recorded back-to-back away wins at both Bishop and West Auckland.
RCA made two changes to the side that won so impressively in the FA Cup last Saturday. Into the starting line-up came Nathan Lawrence and George Pinder, replacing Max Allen and Michael Annang-Colquhoun.
The sides lined up as follows:
Sunderland RCA: Ball, Lawrence, Carr, Jakab, Errington, Hawkins, Hennis, Best, Davison, Richardson, Pinder. Subs: Johnson, Marrs, Bell, Madden, Lennox.
Whickham: Norton, Doyle, Hoganson, Peareth, Galbraith, Milburn, Robson, Burrell, Atkinson, Newton, Robson. Subs: Francis, Russell, Williamson, Bisset, Priest.
