RCA welcomed Jarrow to Sunderland LGV Park for a pre/post season, behind closed doors, friendly.

Involvement in the Durham Challenge Cup maent that both teams were looking for some match sharpness.

Some 0-0 draws have you on the edge of your seat waiting for that elusive goal, this was not one of them.

The pattern of the game was quickly established with RCA keeping possession and attacking while Jarrow seemed content to defend deep and hit on the counter attack.

A fairly mundane first half saw little by way of goalmouth action and neither keeper seriously tested.

RCA introduced Luke Page and Dylan Elliott at half time and pair were immediately involved in the action with Page curling a shot narrowly wide of the post

The pattern of the first half was replicated in the second as both teams tried to play football on the ground. Jarrow were resolute in defence and while RCA's defence was never really put under a great deal of pressure they held firm when they needed to.

A upset was averted in the final minute when Channon North's shot was blocked by Swansbury when the Jarrow striker lookerd certain to score.

RCA will have another behind closed doors friendly on Friday against Sunderland West End kick off 7.00pm
