Here's my report from tonight's Northern League Division One clash between Sunderland RCA and Whitley Bay where a Dylan Elliott screamer helped RCA to a 3-2 win.

Very frustrating game last night. We were quite poor in the second half but should have been a couple of goals clear at half time - no idea how Foalle didn't get the pen when we were 2-1 up.

Before the game I read a Sunderland RCA fan on their Twitter page saying he was no longer coming to games because of the constant abuse towards refs from their players and bench... I assumed he must have been being melodramatic but Christ, he wasn't wrong. Obviously appealing for most things is part of the game but literally every single thing that happened the entire team and bench having a go at the ref was ridiculous. Going down very easy, time-wasting, kicking the ball away... and at one point the home dugout decided to hide the last remaining ball for about 5 minutes so that play couldn't continue/to kill our momentum. I can see why the fan was turned off by it all.

The winning goal was a wonder-strike, to end on a positive.

Agreed, I thought it was nailed-on.

Not sure about that, there were several balls lost over the surrounding fences and replacements needed inflating. The ref did add on time for it.

If that's the case fair enough, we were on the far side & I'd ran off to the loo as play was seemingly stopped indefinitely - came back & was told they'd had a ball all along but that explanation makes sense.

Despite all the 'gamesmanship' the most frustrating thing was that we didn't get it right playing downhill in the second half at all. We have so much pace in Olly Martin & Jack Foalle and just couldn't get them in behind the centre-backs. It's a disappointing run of results for Whitley but I do think we can beat most teams on our day... Hebburn away up next!

two many team changes need to try and keep a more settled side.

Sounds like a very poor show from Sunderlad RCA, am glad I did not go to that match.

Agreed. We turn up each week having no idea how the defence, in particular, is going to be set up. I think availability may be an issue for at least one of the CB's but one week it's Gav and Ibby, the next it's Cal & Luke, then it's a combination of 3 CB's with two wing backs. It's good to have different plans of course but there's no consistency at the minute. There's a lot of quality there so I'm sure it'll turn back around soon.

It's easy to say it given the result, but I think add Cal into the XI vs Benfield & that's our strongest team.

Was exactly the same when we were there this season as well. Could hear all of it stand side as well.
