Sunderland RCA end season with win

Have your say

SUNDERLAND RCA completed a very successful season in the STL Northern League by defeating FA Carlsberg Vase finalists Dunston UTS 2-1 at Meadow Park last night.

Andy Jennings gave Neil Hixon’s side a 44th minute lead when he shrugged off the attentions of his marker and volleyed the ball into the bottom corner of the net, giving UTS goalkeeper Andrew Clark no chance.

With only 10 minutes remaining Ian Herron equalised as he converted a move involving Danny Craggs and Anthony Hume but in the last minute, RCA grabbed a winning goal.

Gary Shields set up Dale Jardine and the former Newton Aycliffe player scored his first goal for RCA, who finish fourth top, two points behind Dunston.
