All the news from Sunderland RCA FC

Martin Swales appointed as new RCA manager

The club are pleased to announce the appointment of Martin Swales as our new team manager. In what was a very strong field of candidates, which reflected well on Sunderland RCA's reputation as a club, Martin's local football knowledge and his obvious commitment and desire to manage RCA gave him the edge in the opinion of the club management committee.

We are confident that Martin will be a successful appointment and look forward to working with him to move the club up the Northern League First Division table and develop and grow the club in coming seasons.

Never mind the World Cup! Our lads are back in pre-season training, where we welcomed old and new faces. It certainly whets the appetite for the new campaign. And while the lads trained, our Owen Haley did a bit of farming!
