CLUB HISTORY & BACKGROUND

The first Football Aid event at the Stadium of Light took place in May 2001 with former Black Cats Richie Pitt and Bobby Kerr acting as Managers to the two enthusiastic sides. Richard Ord also featured in defence for the Away team and when asked how it felt to be playing on the famous pitch alongside the legend, one participant was particularly philosophical: "I'll keep him right, don't worry. I'll also tell him that he'll have to carry the other ten players..."  The Club continued their successful relationship with Football Aid between 2001 - 2007 with the games featuring a host of famous names, including Niall Quinn, Gary Bennett, Kevin Ball, Marco Gabbiadini, Micky Horswill, Craig Russell, Len Ashurst and John Kay. After a break of a few years we were delighted to make a return to the Stadium of Light, with Legends Darren Holloway and Gary Bennett, playing, in our Sunderland game on Mon 15th May 2017 and we also hosted an England vs Rep of Ireland match on the same day.
