Mark Davison scores the winner for RCA.
Bishop Auckland's video highlights are here.
The lads made the trip to the newly named “Voneus Heritage Park” to play Bishop Auckland in this Ebac Northern League Division I clash.
So much has changed since we clashed in the Extra Preliminary round of the FA Cup when RCA ran out convincing 5-1 winners. Bishop have a new manager in Chris Hardy and a much changed team, while RCA have also lost a few players and gained others. Harry Dunn took charge for the final time tonight and we wish him well in his retirement.
The pitch looked in good condition after the recent rain and everything was set for an entertaining evening of football. If you didn’t fancy watching this one there was always the clubhouse where some international was taking place on the big screen.
The management team made two changes to the team which was beaten by Crook on Saturday. Into the team came Joshua Croft and Taylor Richardson to replace Michael Coghlan and Michael Annang-Colquhoun.
The teams lined up as follows:
Bishop Auckland: Liversedge, Winstanley, Miller, Poole ©, Emery, Nelson, Waters, Suddick, Pinder, Murphy, Stevens: Subs: Gilchrist, Lamb, Hoare, Ait El Haj, Pilling.
Sunderland RCA: Ball, Allen, J Croft, Jakab, Errington, Hawkins ©, Carr Watts, Davison, Burlace, Richardson: Subs: Coghlan, Hunter, Weirs, Annang-Colquhoun, Marrs.
