They replaced Carl Morris, Wray, McNab and Wilson in an attacking line up. Tony Coe, initially in the starting 11 pulled up during the warm up and was unable to take part.

The two bottom clubs in the EBAC Northern League Division 1 met today in the 2nd Preliminary round of the FA Vase.

Both teams are currently going through a re-construction process having recently appointed new managers.

At SRCA the management team of Martin Swales and Gee Errington took charge of their first home game and with matches coming thick and fast it was an opportunity to assess players. There were always going to be changes to the team as Barton was suspended and Gary Wood was unavailable due to work commitments. The injury list seems to be getting better with Callen and Coe declared fit and Carmichael almost there. Callen started the game up front partnering Hughes, Jury was switched to the centre of midfield with Bythway moving to right back and Wilson brought in to left back.

The first team selection for the new management team, an away League Cup match against Celtic Nation FC, who are probably not firing on all cylinders at present but are well capable on their day of performing against the best in the division, RCA also had traffic problems to contend with, an accident on the A19 meant four players were late for the team bus.

With Carmichael still injured Carl Morris retained the No 1 Jersey, the back four remained unchanged, Brown came into midfield to replace Price and their was no change up front.

Less than five minutes to warm up and out onto the pitch, not ideal preparation for the players but what was to follow was a revelation. The players are the same, but the desire, passion and hunger is there for all to see.

Newly appointed manager Martin Swales was in attendance at the game but it was Ian Smith who selected the team.

Carl Morris continued in goal for the injured Carmichael with Bythway back on the left side of defence to make way for Wray. The rest of the team was the same as for the Durham County Cup match on Tuesday.

RCA started smartly without testing Hunter in the the Jarrow goal. In the sixth minute Gary Wood slid a great ball into the path of Barton who moved it on to Hughes but the RCA striker's shot was deflected for a corner. Two corners followed with Jarrow's defence making sure that RCA attack did not make contact with the ball.

Disaster struck in the 14th minute when a corner to the far post was picked up by Wright, he slipped past Preston before going down under a challenge inside the area and the referee pointed to the spot. Campbell stepped up and converted the penalty.

Managerless RCA welcomed our friends from Birtley to Meadow Park for this Duham Challenge Cup preliminary round.

Ian Smith took charge of team selection and made sweeping changes to the team that played at Guisborough, Carl Morris, in for the Carmichael, Bythway in for Wray, Gary Wood in for Brown and  Matty Thompson making his debut replacing Wilson.

In a nervy start to the game RCA looked good in possession but were unable to find a good delivery in the final third.
