Due to changes in travel arrangement announced by the Scottish Goverment the friendly against Elgin Albion on 9 May has been postponed. A new date is to be arranged possibly at the beginning of July.
Sunderland RCA are pleased to announce that Brown and Hood will sponsor our new away strip for the remainder of the season.

Sunderland RCA will, all being well, return to football on Tuesday, 13th April 2021 in the Durham Challenge cup Kick off 7.30pm
The match will take place at the Ford Quarry Hub against Chester-Le-Sreet United from the Wearside League.
There is also a post season friendly arranged against Scottish club Elgin Albion on Saturday, 8th May 2021 kick off 3.00pm.
Brad Forster has decided to leave the club and join Sunderland West End. The club would like to wish him well on his return to his former club.
The Covid-19 pandemic has meant an enforced lay off for the team. Our first match since narrowly losing at Consett on the 31 October 2020 saw us up against High flying Wearside League leaders Boldon CA in the Durham Challenge Cup.
A much changed team from the one that faced Consett with six changes to the squad.
The teams lined up as follows:
Sunderland RCA: Dean, Burlace, Allen, Preston, Swansbury ©, Best, Leonard, Elliott, Larkin, Milburn, Carr. Subs: Fairley, Errington, Forster, Dorward, Armstrong.
Boldon CA: Hunter, Nolan, Bell, Attewell, Graham © Williams, McBeth, Wright, Wightman, Collins, Hutchinson. Subs: Strong, Lowe, Gray, Hoey, Graham.
The heavy and persistent rain of recent days had taken its toll on the pitch which, although it looked good, was very soft in places. A testament once again to the ground staff who have worked wonders in preparing the pitch.
Despite not having played for so long, or indeed because of that fact, both teams stated their early intent to attack at every opportunity.
