Sunderland RCA await outcome

Have your say

SUNDERLAND RCA will anxiously await the result of tonight’s game between Morpeth Town and Crook Town.

Just one point for the Northumbrians will lift them above the Wearsiders, who will slip to fifth-from-bottom.

Crook have a two-point advantage over David Lee’s side and are immediately above RCA.

Second-bottom Hebburn Town are relegated along with Billingham Town and the South Tynesiders can expect another difficult night at Newcastle Benfield, whose manager Steve Bowey is looking for a top-10 finish.

Celtic Nation will be out to extend their lead at the top of the table to eight points by winning at Newton Aycliffe while Shildon, who slipped back to third place last night, have the chance to regain second position when they line up at home to Dunston UTS.

Only one game is scheduled in Division Two but the result is important to Seaham Red Star since a win for West Allotment Celtic over South Shields will edge the Tynesiders into third place, just a point behind Mark Collingwood’s team.

Brandon United have struggled and are second bottom but they’ve made good progress in the Brooks Mileson Memorial Cup and are in with a chance of reaching the semi finals when they have home advantage over bottom-six side Whitehaven.
