A windswept Hillheads was the venue for this Ebac Northern League Division 1 fixture.
Neither team has set the league alight this season, but RCA would be looking to avenge the 6-2 drubbing handed out by their hosts earlier in the season.
The spread of the Coronavirus has meant that the “Respect” handshake has been suspended until further notice. The players, therefore, would be led out by the referee and promptly enter the field without the handshake taking place.
The RCA Management team minus the manager (suspended) made one change to the team who drew on Tuesday at Ashington, with Hennis returning to the midfield in place of J Leonard.
The teams lined up as follows:
Whitley Bay: Lister, Bexton, Martin, Bennett, Taylor, Lowery, Fairley, Anderson, Annang-Colquhoun, Robinson, Shepperd. Subs: McFarlane, Jennison, Davison, Olsen, Orrell
SRCA: Dean, Allen, Lawson, Hodgson, Swansbury ©, Hennis, R Leonard, Best, O’Neill, Elliott, K Davis. Subs: Croft, Ezard, J Leonard, Dorward, Slack.
