Riley Report - January 2022

Submitted by Colin Wilson on Wednesday, 19 January 2022

Good Afternoon

It been a long time since my last report and seems as if we haven’t played for at least a month, and they say a week is long time in football.

Unfortunately last week’s game had to be postponed due to a big outbreak in the squad with Covid including myself and members of coaching staff. We have been quite lucky that in the past it has just been a single individual that has caught it and we have still managed to field a side, but even if we had called up the youth players signed on we would have struggled to get 11 players on the pitch last week.

Thankfully most of our squad will now have had Covid so we are hoping that we have no more disruptions to our season because of it.

Michael Hoganson latest RCA signing

Submitted by Rob Jones on Wednesday, 5 January 2022

Sunderland RCA manager Steve Riley is thrilled to finally complete the signing of Michael Hoganson.

The experienced defender was part of the Newcastle United’s youth setup before joining Championship side Derby County. He then went out on loan to Conference side Alfreton Town.

Hoganson moved back to the North East to play for Newcastle Benfield and gained more experience when he joined Spennymoor Town before signing for Steve at Bishop Auckland where he played for four years before joining West Auckland in the 2019-20 season.

Riley Report - 4 December

Submitted by Colin Wilson on Saturday, 4 December 2021

Good Afternoon

It seems a long time since our last game with the postponement of our last two games.

And the most disappointing thing was it has come at a time when I thought we were playing well.

Two good wins against West Auckland and Guisborough Town who are both very good sides and with West riding high in second place shows again the potential in the Squad.

I thought both games were different but we had a game plan and stuck to it which got us the three points.
