The Durham City perspective is here.
A 10.ooam inspection of the pitch was positive and the efforts of John Anderson, Dave Hill and Graham Defty were rewarded with our first match since the away defeat to Newton Aycliffe FC on 12 January 2013. Although the playing surface was very soft in places and liable to cut up.
The return of Ross Preston meant that the back four had a familiar ring to it, however the same cannot be said of the midfield as Kane was swithched inside and Monson and Rivers took on the roles of wide men.
RCA also gave a debut to Jamie Clarke partnering Guerin-Lokonga up front.
Durham City included in their squad Ex RCA player James Oates while RCA boasted at least 3 ex Durham City players in theirs.
Although the state of the pitch was obviously going to play a part in the quality of football, the players started the match trying to play good football.
