RCA were on their travels again today, this time up the A1 to Newton Aycliffe’s Beaumont Landscapes Stadium, Moore Lane.

As both teams recorded mid week wins, RCA in a hard fought match at Bishop Auckland and Newton Aycliffe in an equally hard fought win against high flying Thornaby, the stage was set for a good afternoon of football

Both teams had selection problems prior to kick off with RCA’s Ben Errington and Newton Aycliffe’s Jack Naylor both pulling up in the pre-match warm up. They were replaced by Dane Burlace and Alexander Walker respectively.

The management team brought into the starting eleven Coghlan, Weirs, and Annang-Colquhoun to replace Errington, Watts and J Croft.

 The teams lined up as follows:

Newton Aycliffe: Pickford, Petitjean, Wood, Green, Walker, Brown ©, Jarvie, Munro, Costello, Dibb-Fuller, Coleman. Subs: Ferguson, Walton, Ardelean, Ryder.

Bishop Auckland's video highlights are here.

The lads made the trip to the newly named “Voneus Heritage Park” to play Bishop Auckland in this Ebac Northern League Division I clash.

So much has changed since we clashed in the Extra Preliminary round of the FA Cup when RCA ran out convincing 5-1 winners. Bishop have a new manager in Chris Hardy and a much changed team, while RCA have also lost a few players and gained others. Harry Dunn took charge for the final time tonight and we wish him well in his retirement.

The pitch looked in good condition after the recent rain and everything was set for an entertaining evening of football. If you didn’t fancy watching this one there was always the clubhouse where some international was taking place on the big screen.

The management team made two changes to the team which was beaten by Crook on Saturday. Into the team came Joshua Croft and Taylor Richardson to replace Michael Coghlan and Michael Annang-Colquhoun.

The teams lined up as follows:

Bishop Auckland: Liversedge, Winstanley, Miller, Poole ©, Emery, Nelson, Waters, Suddick, Pinder, Murphy, Stevens: Subs: Gilchrist, Lamb, Hoare, Ait El Haj, Pilling.

Sunderland RCA: Ball, Allen, J Croft, Jakab, Errington, Hawkins ©, Carr Watts, Davison, Burlace, Richardson: Subs: Coghlan, Hunter, Weirs, Annang-Colquhoun, Marrs.

The teams lined up as follows:

Sunderland RCA: Ball, Burlace, Allen, Jakab, Errington, Hawkins ©, Carr, Coghlan, Davison, Annang-Colquhoun, Watts. Subs: J Croft, Weirs, Hennis, Richardson, Hunter.
