Race Night

Submitted by Simon Mears on Monday, 26 March 2018

On Saturday, 7 April, Sunderland RCA will be holding a Race Night after the match against Newcastle Benfield - which itself promises to be a cracking game, with both sides pushing for at least a top eight finish.

The event will in the clubhouse, with free entry, cheap drinks and will be hosted by the shy and retiring Mark Cowan, and will run until around 7-7:30pm. Anyone who has been to one of Mark’s Race Nights will know that it’s a brilliant night.

It’s also a great chance for supporters, players and management to get together and socialise for what is always a highly entertaining couple of hours.

Please come along for an afternoon of quality football, followed by some top banter in the clubhouse!
