Due to holiday, injuries and work commitments, SRCA were down to the bare bones for today’s match against Newton Aycliffe. Further problems were added in the pre-match warm up when Hughes pulled up with a recurrence of his ankle injury.
The management team kept faith with the goalkeeper and back four which had performed so heroically on Wednesday night. Proctor came in for the injured Brown and Charlton and Hope replaced Callen and Carr respectively in a re-jigged midfield. This left a bench consisting of McNab, Harkess (GK) and the injured Hughes.
