Value for money and excitement with the Northern League Division 1 at Meadow Park. The standard admission prices for highly competitive Northern League football are £5.00 and £3.00 for concessions. Non-standard prices may apply to particular games and will be announced in advance. Season tickets, which include all official cup games, are £60 and £45 concessions. Sunderland RCA is a family friendly club: new fans and spectators are always welcome and entry for accompanied children is free.
The meeting between these two clubs just over a week ago produced a 1 - 1 draw and a similar result today would have been welcomed by the RCA faithful.
Team news was that Captain Gary Wood was unavailable due to family committments, new signing and ex Guisborough player Lee Bythway was working and Tony Coe was injured, into the team came Wray, Hughes and Lewis Wood.
After the weekend success at Brinkburn Road in the FA Vase it was back to league action for RCA against a Whitley Bay team who are unbeaten at home this season.
RCA were forced to make changes with both McNab and Lewis Wood unavailable due to work committments. Captain, Gary Wood failed a late fitness test and was ruled out, but is hopeful for Saturday. Into the starting line up came Garry Guyan and Kyle Morris.

FA Vase 1st Qualifying Round
Goalscorers: Barton (2), Jury, Price, Guyan.
The FA Vase 1st preliminary round was a welcome distraction from the rigours of life at the wrong end of the first division. A run of poor results, despite some very encouraging performances, have left SRCA languishing at the bottom of the table.
Having made his debut as a second half substitute on Saturday, Carl Morris retained the number 1 Jersey for this Northern League clash with Celtic Nation.
With Tony Coe unavailable, RCA reshuffled their team Lewis Wood moving over to the right wing, Horsman coming into the team at left back and McNab in a more familiar role on the left wing. New signing Garry Guyan was on the bench.

A point at last, well done boys! And well deserved from what I saw through the netting. So on we go, many more to follow in coming weeks I'm sure. And the Lucky 7 is a rollover I believe, which always gets the locals excited, three figures is big money in these parts. Mind I can remember buying one of my best ever cars for £50, so it goes to show that values change over time. It had no seatbelts and little in the way of brakes, but it went well, as long as it wasn't raining, happy days....
I digress. Deadline day for the big boys yesterday, did our friends at the Stadium get Borini after all? Or decide on a Uruguayan centre half in the Liverpool sales instead? Alvarez? Welbeck? You will know all by now. There will be a few expensive turkeys bought by somebody desperate you can guarantee that. Just got to hope they end up in Black and White.
