Club Description

Formed in 1879, it is easy to forget for the young football fan just how successful Sunderland have been.  Taking Stoke City’s place in the Football League, they capitalized fully by winning the league 4 times in 10 years; helped chiefly by top scorer Johnny Campbell.

The Black Cats remained one of the top teams in the country by winning two more league titles and reaching several domestic cup finals. Their fortunes changed, however, in the late 1950’s when a financial scandal disgraced several of the board members.

The club were relegated soon after this scandal but they did manage to win their last major trophy to date in a famous FA Cup victory against Don Revie’s Leeds in 1973.

Sunderland remained a second tier team throughout the 80’s and most of the 90’s despite the odd promotion but in 2008, former player Niall Quinn was put in charge of the team’s fortunes and with Roy Keane in the manager’s seat, they quickly rose to the Premier League where they have remained a fixture ever since. The recent departure of Steve Bruce has not downtrodden Wearside hearts or hopes though, as experienced manager Martin O’Neill has stepped into the void.
