Sunderland RCA travelled up the A19 to North Shields’ Daren Perssen Stadium for the first match of 2020. Having won their last two matches and with players returning to full fitness the New Year looks full of promise.
However their opponents, North Shields, have only lost once in the last 14 matches and that was by an in form Shildon team.
The RCA management team decided to stick with the same starting line-up that was successful in last weekend’s derby victory.
The teams lined up as follows:
North Shields: Purvis, Cassidy, McDonald, Ormston, New, Buchanan, Robinson, C Patton, McCarthy, Carr ©, K Patton. Subs: Campbell, Smith, Christensen, Hall, Williams.
SRCA: Dean, Allen, McNab, Preston, Swansbury ©, Best, Elliott, O’Neill, Davison, K Davis Lawson Subs: C Davis, Ezard, Leonard, Hennis, Moan.
