Max puts Pen to Paper

We are pleased to announce that Max Allen has registered with RCA for another season. After being released by Newcastle at the start of last season Max was picked up by the RCA management team, thrown in at the deep end so to speak and produced some outstanding defensive performances.

Manager, Martin Swales is delighted with this signing “we are over the moon that Max has decided to sign for another season, he has the potential to be one of the best defenders in this league.

Assistant Manager Mark Cowan commented, " Max is a quiet unassuming player off the pitch but once he starts playing there are few better young full backs in the Northern League."
