The Mitre Brooks Mileson League cup format has been changed this season and is now played, in the initial stages, in Groups. In our first match of the competition we travelled to the Tom Cowie Millfield Stadium to face second division Crook Town.
The RCA Management team decided to give Kieron Ezard his debut in goal replacing Robert Dean, while at the other end of the spectrum Michael Charlton was recalled to the team for his 200th appearance replacing Henry Dorward. Also recalled to the starting eleven was Kyle Davis who took the place of Stephen Callen.
Our best wishes are extended to Connor Slack who having impressed in a number of matches was called up to Sunderland AFC’s under 23 squad - good luck to the lad.
The teams Lined up as follows:
CROOK TOWN: Makepeace, Crossen, Gavin, Duell, Wilson, Dunwell, Hillerby, Eltringham, Kent, Maddison, Petitjean. Subs: Verity, Shevels, Hume, Smith, Connelly.
SRCA: Ezard, Allen, Lilley, Croft, Swansbury ©, O’Neill, Charlton, Elliott, Davison, K Davis, Leonard. Subs: Moan, Dean, C Davis, Preston, Hodgson.
