Clayton Davis in second half action.

Goalscorers: Armstrong, Hughes (2), Davis, OG.

Pre season friendlies are all about getting fitness levels up and trying new formations so it was not a surprise to see different starting 11 to the one which began the game against Horden.

The game started with both teams testing each other out, and there was little goalmouth action to write about.

Goalscorers: SRCA: Callen (2), Horsley (2), Larkin, Hughes. Horden: Pattison, Lonsdale.

The opening 25 minutes of this match was a fairly even affair with both teams creating chances and both keepers making good saves, the deadlock was broken in the 27 minute when Callen rose at the far post to send a looping header over the Horden Keeper and into the net.

Goalscorers: Larkin, Callen, Hope, Hughes.

RCA opened the scoring in the 30th second of their opening friendly of the season at Richmond. Larkin latching onto a through ball from Armstrong to steer the ball over the head of the sdvancing keeper.

RCA continued to press in the opening 15 minutes but found themselves on equal terms after 17 minutes when a mix up in defence saw Scott put into his own goal.

This gave impetus to the home team who started to look the better team.
