View from the Cemetery - October 2014 - Part 4

Very unlucky up at Bedlington on Saturday I am told, although missing pens can't really be counted as bad luck, can it? But overall by all accounts we were much the better side, against a team going very well indeed. But no points, which we rather need at the minute. Never mind, the next game is always the important one. Bob Paisley used to say you should ignore results, as anything could happen in football, and focus on performances only. Mind, he was usually top of the table so he could afford to let results look after themselves, bit more difficult down the other end.

EBAC Northern League Division 1

Goalscorers: SRCA: None: Bedlington Terriers: Young, Nellis.

Please click here for some photos from the match.

The games are coming thick and fast at the moment and we seem to be playing all the top teams in the same month, West Auckland (Top), North Shields (4th) and now Bedlington Terriers who are lying in 2nd place in the table.

Bedlington look to be having the sort of season that we had when we finished 4th in the league while we are still trying to get a settled squad.

Once again injury to a key player, Joe Hughes, caused a change in the formation and selection of the team, Wray returned to the centre of defence, Brown was pushed forward into midfield leaving Barton as the only front man in a 4-5-1 formation.

Ebac Northern League Division 1

Goalscorers: SRCA: None North Shields FC: Morris, Wrightson, Holmes.

Only one change for this ENL First Divison match against newly promoted and highflying North Shields. Into the team came leading scorer Barton replacing Kyle Morris.

RCA were undeafeated under the new management team of Swaz and Gee, before tonight's match and optimism was high for the run to continue. North Shields have set the first division alight with their start to the season and the fans were expecting an easy three points tonight.

EBAC Northern League Division 1

Goalscorers:  SRCA: Charlton, Morris, Bythway and Austin-Wilson.

SRCA entertained Crook Town for the second time in seven days and after the closely fought encounter in the FA Vase last week a keen encounter was envisaged for today's match.

Both managers made changes from last week's squads with cup-tied players involved in the two squads.

RCA only made one change from the team that played exceptionally well in the mid week draw against top of the table West Auckland. With Barton unable to make the game due to work commitments, it gave an opportunity for Kyle Morris to step in to the No 9 shirt.

EBAC Northern League Division 1

Goalscorers: SRCA: Hughes, Barton.    West: Fowler, Moffatt

SRCA welcomed tabletopping West Auckland to Meadow Park for this top versus bottom Ebac Northern League Division 1 encounter.

With the injury worries looking to have inproved in the last 48 hours the management team had almost a full squad to choose from. Back into the team came Carmichael, Gary Wood, Charlton and Barton. They replaced Carl Morris, Wray, McNab and Wilson in an attacking line up. Tony Coe, initially in the starting 11 pulled up during the warm up and was unable to take part.

FA VASE 1st Round Proper

Sunderland RCA FC have been drawn at home against Handsworth Parramore FC in the 1st round proper of the FA Vase.

The match will take place on 1 November 2014.

Handsworth and Parramore FC was formed after a merger between Handsworth F.C. and Parramore F.C. 2014 and the club was placed in the Northern Counties East Football League Premier Division where they currently lie 5th. I believe that they are currently playing their home games in Worksop.
