Mike Amos's Grass Routes

Submitted by Tim Robinson on Sunday, 31 July 2016
Here's some very good news: former Northern League Chairman, Mike Amos is continuing his blog, this time on an independent basis - that peculiarly English predisposition to shoot ourselves in our own feet led to the blog being discontinued on the Northern League web site.
Mike says:
"As with the original, Grass Routes will chiefly seek to promote the unique pleasures of Northern League football and of life and times in North-East England. As the name suggests, there will also be a public transport element – and like many of the bus services, it will probably make quite a few roundabout journeys. As with the original, it will seek chiefly to be an entertainment."

Assistant Manager appointed

Submitted by Rob Jones on Monday, 6 June 2016

Martin Swales has appointed ex-RCA player Steven Stewart as his assistant for the coming season.

Steven is no stranger to Meadow Park and has extensive Northern League experience as a player, having also played for Washington, Bedlington, Nissan, Durham, Chester-le-Street, Benfield and Blyth Spartans.

He is now looking to move into the management side and sees SRCA as the ideal place to start, he is familiar with the set up off the pitch and his vast experience and knowledge of players at this level will be an invaluable asset to Martin.

The management team will now consist of: Martin Swales (Manager), Steven Stewart (Assistant Manager), Colin Larkin (Player/ Coach) and Dan Moore (Head of Medical Services and Performance).
