EBAC Northern League Division 1

Goalscorers: SRCA. None, Morpeth: Chilton (2), Taylor.

Whoever decided that a Bank Holiday derby match should be between RCA and Morpeth Town really need to get hold of a map or a SATNAV, there are certainly nearer first division teams who could be classed as a derby. 

Also, I keep hearing people talk about player commitment, but on Monday,  Lewis Woods travelled from Guisborough to Ryhope before boarding the team bus to Morpeth, played 90 minutes got back to Ryhope about 3.00pm before setting off for work in Brighton 340miles away. On Friday he will travel back after work in order to play on Saturday. This is true commitment to the club in my opinion.

EBAC Northern League Division 1

Goalscorers:  SRCA: None.   Dunston: Ormston, Fenwick, Kane.

RCA dropped to the bottom of the league after today's result and remain the only team in either divison of the EBAC Northern League not to have pickup any points so far this season.

After the disappointment of the FA Cup Replay defeat to Bishop Auckland FC in midweek today's result was a bitter blow to the team who had fought so courageously in the two cup matches.

After Friday's excellent performance in the second half at Heritage Park it was back to Meadow Park for this FA Cup Replay.

Unfortunately due to work commitments both Coe and Lewis Wood were unavailable for the replay and Hughes was injured playing on Sunday. Their places were taken by Brown and Horsman with Halliday returning after suspension and taking his place on the bench. The team was reshuffled to accommodate the changes in personnel.

It is a quirk of fate that we seem to draw Bishops in some cup competition or other during a season so it was no surprise to see the FA Cup draw pair us together. Matches in cup competitions have always been hard fought encounters and tonight's match would be no exception.

The RCA team saw the return to defence of Wray in place of Horsman, Stanger returned to the centre of midfield replacing Hughes. Andrew Brown also returned to the bench after injury.

Bishops were in great spirits, having won their opening two encounters in the league at Celtic Nation and West Auckland.

RCA were the hosts to newly promoted West Allotment Celtic who had made an immediate impact on their return to the first division with a resounding 3-0 victory against Penrith on Saturday. Unsurprisingly they named an unchanged starting 11 for tonight's match.

Due to work commitments both Stanger and Brown were missing for tonight's match and their places were taken by McNab and Hughes. Jury reverting to a more familiar right back slot, McNab was installed at left back, Hughes partnered Morris up front with the two Gary and Lewis Wood starting in the centre of midfield
