Taylor Richardson whips in a first half cross.

RCA travelled through the Tyne Tunnel for this Northern League Division 1 fixture against Whitley Bay.

The hosts needed all three points to secure their survival in the first division for next season while RCA were looking to bounce back after their defeat to Thornaby last week. The last meeting between the two teams was in March when Whitley Bay won after a penalty shoot-out in the Division one cup, so a tight match was envisaged.

The RCA management team made two changes to the team with Weirs and Annang-Colquhoun replacing the injured Patton and Winn. They also included on the bench Bell and Mitchell members of the under 23’s squad.

The teams lined up as follows:

Whitley Bay: Lister, Dick, K Errington, Yoxall, Lowery ©, Taylor, Dippenaar, B Richardson, Shanks, Orrell, Geliher. Subs: Morien, Cresdee, Anderson, Gilchrist, Ward.

Sunderland RCA: Marrs, Carr, Charlton, Hawkins ©, B Errington, Hennis, Weirs, Jakab, Davison, Annang-Colquhoun, T Richardson.  Subs: Lawrence, Johnson, Bell, Mitchell, Herdman.

Michael Annang-Colquhoun looks for a consolation goal in the second half of the match.

Today’s visitors Thornaby have had a very good season so far but travelled to Sunderland LGV Park without a win in their last five matches while RCA were undefeated in their last four outings.

RCA were forced to make a number of changes to the team who secured three points at Billingham Town last week, Winn, Hawkins and Carr replaced Allen, Weirs and Annang-Colquhoun.

The teams lined up as follows:

Sunderland RCA: Marrs, Jakab, Charlton, Hawkins ©, Errington, Hennis, Carr, Patton, Davison, Winn, Richardson. Subs: Lawrence, Johnson, Annang-Colquhoun, Weirs, Bell.

Thornaby: Hunt, Moore ©, McAvoy, Kenney, Frazer, Guru, Giroud, Flounders, C Hutchinson, Beddow, Hogan. Subs: Scaife-Wheatley, Pickett, A Hutchinson, Mitchell, Mazfari.

RCA made the trip down the A19 to play bottom of the table Billingham Town looking to add to their run of three games unbeaten. Billingham Town, on the other hand, would be looking for a result to give them a chance of survival in the first Division so a tight match was forecast prior to kick off.

With both Dan Hawkins and Greg Swansbury out injured the captain's armband was given to Mark Davison. Callum Patton, whose dramatic late goal last week gave RCA three points against Newton Aycliffe, came into the starting 11 to replace Hawkins.

The teams lined up as follows:

Billingham Town: Norton, Cann, Snaith, Painter, Beeden, Nelson, Harrison, Jatta, Close, Boyle ©, Rennison. Subs: Earl, Wilson, Daley, Harris, Murphy.

Sunderland RCA: Marrs, Allen, Charlton, Jakab, Errington, Hennis, Weirs, Patton, Davison ©, Annang-Colquhoun, Richardson. Subs: Lawrence, Carr, Winn, Johnson, Herdman.

RCA welcomed Newton Aycliffe to Sunderland LGV Park today for this Ebac Northern League Division 1 fixture.

Newton Aycliffe started the season in fine form until we managed to end a good run back in October 2021 and they arrived today on the back of a seven match unbeaten league run. They, like us, were defeated by Crook Town in the Durham Challenge Cup.

The teams lined up as follows:

Sunderland RCA: Marrs, Allen, Charlton, Jakab, Errington, Hennis, Weirs, Hawkins ©, Davison, Annang-Colquhoun, Richardson. Subs: Carr, Patton, Lawrence, Bell, Herdman.

Newton Aycliffe: Pickford, Green, Walton, Brown ©, Munro, Wood, Dibb-Fuller, Costello, Ardelean, Jarvie, Howard. Subs: Clarkson, Walker, Reay, Petitjean.
