Club news 2010-11
The friendly game arranged for tomorrow night - Wednesday, 15 December - against Silksworth at Welfare Park, Blind Lane, Silksworth has been cancelled.
We are sorry to announce that both Sunderland RCA fixtures for this weekend - today's away match against Bishop Auckland and tomorrow's FA Sunday Cup game against Sandstone FC from Liverpool - are off.
Well, real frustration now as no games again for the forseeable future!
The first team game at Bishop Auckland really had little chance and we all hold our breath for a possible run out at South Shields on 27 December with a 1.00 pm kick off. The lads can get it out of their systems when they travel to Newcastle tonight for the Christmas Party.
The match against South Shileds FC due to take place Monday, 27 December 2010 has been postponed.
No great surprise given the conditions / weather forecast of more overnight freezing.
Happy New Year from all at Sunderland RCA FC
