The League Cup Group stage match against local rivals Ryhope CW took on more significance for the visitors as a RCW draw or better would see them progress in the competition, RCA having already assured themselves of a place in the last 16 with their win against Washington FC last week.
As usual for this competition the RCA Management team made a number of changes giving younger players more experience at this level and players returning from injury much needed playing time.
The teams lined up as follows:
SRCA: Ezard, Allen, McNab, Lilley, Swansbury ©, Hodgson, Leonard, Croft, Moan, O’Neill, Gray. Subs: Dean, Callen, Green, C Davis
RCW: Harkess, Walker, J Weirs, Riding ©, Jones, Trewick, Bird, Hotchkiss, Rae , M Weirs, Ellis. Subs: Winter, Pearn, Wallace, Devlin.
