Since the disappointment of being knocked out of the Emirates FA Cup at the hands of Clitheroe at the beginning of the month, Sunderland RCA have responded magnificently, recording three successive victories in the league (and five in total) away at West Auckland Town and Newcastle Benfield, as well as Saturday's excellent 4-0 home win over Hebburn Town, which earned RCA the Northern League Division One ‘team of the week’ award with a whopping 51% share of the vote.
For tonight's match, RCA made the short journey up the bank to take on neighbours Ryhope CW in the second derby of the season.
RCA named an unchanged side from Saturday's impressive win over Hebburn Town.
The two sides lined up as follows:
Ryhope CW: Atkinson; Nicholson; Cocks; Kane; Lay; Ryan (c); Bird; Winship; Ellison; Weirs; Ellis.
Sunderland RCA: Tsapalos; Lilley; McNab; Preston; Swansbury (c); Elliott; Clayton Davis; Page; O'Neill; Moan; Ramshaw. Subs: Hodgson; Armstrong; Kyle Davis; Kokoska; Richardson.
