RCA are delighted to have secured the services of Dave Dickson and Cal Brown as Manager and Assistant Manager for next season and onwards. The lads come with a lot of enthusiasm and ideas and we are confident they can take the club forward in coming years. Best of luck to the lads!
Tim's funeral is next Thursday, 2nd March at 11.30am at St Gabriel's Church, St Gabriel's Ave, Heaton, Newcastle, NE6 5QN (behind the Corner House). All welcome.
The Sunderland RCA committee would like to place on record their sincere thanks to the Reserve Team management for their tremendous support and effort over the last few weeks in what has been a difficult period for the club.
The support that John Burnikell, Dominick Jones and Neil Tait have given the club is immeasurable a massive thank you to the three of them for their efforts.
Mention should also go out to all the players who have played their part in the last three games they have stepped up to be counted and not let themselves down in what is a very difficult league to play in. Stepping up 4 levels was a massive ask but they coped well and kept going to the very end in every game.
Martin Swales returns as manager of Sunderland RCA FC until the end of the season. Watch this space!
Following the entirely amicable departure of Steve Riley and his team, Sunderland RCA is now looking for a new first team manager to help take the club forward.
Following a wave of local support the club intends shortly to withdraw our notice of potential resignation from the EBAC Northern League, continue a hard fight to stay in the first division and then have a very busy summer to prepare for the 23/24 season and thereafter.
Anyone interested in becoming our manager or wanting further information about this exciting opportunity is asked to contact Colin Wilson on 07802 523533 or Rob Jones on 07932 951842 asap.
Sunderland RCA are very sad to report that Tim Robinson, 69, died yesterday after a short battle with illness.
Webmaster, photographer, IT guru extraordinaire, a loyal and committed servant to the football club, and a wonderful friend and support to all comrades at RCA. Tim was as genuine and honest a man as you could ever hope to meet. Unfailingly kind and generous, he would help anybody with wise advice and practical support.
Tim never sought praise or the limelight, preferring to be behind the camera rather than in front. He rarely if ever got frustrated or disappointed by the failings of others, he just got on with the job in hand.
Tim is irreplaceable and we will all miss him, his gentle voice and his warm smile. Taken much too soon, go well old friend. RIP.
