Sunderland RCA welcomed Sunderland AFC under 23s to Meadow Park for what promised to be a contest as keenly fought as last season's pre-season friendly.

After a fairly even first half hour, where RCA created a couple of good openings through Page and Callen, the match burst into life in the 37th minute when Benji Kimpioka scored a terrific six-minute hat-trick to give SAFC a three-nil half-time lead.

The visitors added a fourth in the second half, before RCA responded well to score two goals in the final five minutes, with Reece McEwan slotting home from inside the penalty area, and Nathan O'Neill scoring from the penalty spot.

Thanks very much to all involved at Sunderland AFC for making the match possible.
