Greg Swansbury in action against South Shields during last season's Durham County Challenge Cup match.
Great news with captain Greg Swansbury tonight signing a contract with Sunderland RCA.
Greg has had some good offers since the end of season, but has committed his future with his home town club.
Manager Martin Swales had this to say: “Signing Greg is a great achievement for the club and is a statement of our intent for the coming season. Greg’s performances over the past few seasons have been nothing short of incredible and he’s a real leader on and off the pitch. I’ve always maintained that Greg and Ross Preston are the best centre backs in the league, and with teams from higher up in the pyramid chasing Greg, it just shows how highly he’s rated. A great lad, great player and a real leader.”
