The final behind closed doors friendly prior to our Durham Challenge Cup tie on Tuesday, 13 April saw us entertain Sunderland West End at our Sunderland LGV Park ground on Friday 9 April.

An injury depleted squad saw the return of Larkin to play up front with Davison.

The opening 10 minutes saw both teams playing attacking football. RCA with the advantage of the slope took the lead in the 15 minute when Milburn drifted in from the right before firing in a low shot from the edge of the penalty area and past the outstretched arm of Bussey.

RCA welcomed Jarrow to Sunderland LGV Park for a pre/post season, behind closed doors, friendly.

Involvement in the Durham Challenge Cup maent that both teams were looking for some match sharpness.

Some 0-0 draws have you on the edge of your seat waiting for that elusive goal, this was not one of them.

The pattern of the game was quickly established with RCA keeping possession and attacking while Jarrow seemed content to defend deep and hit on the counter attack.
