The Great Days of Sunderland: Six League Titles and Two FA Cups

David Potter

Regular price $24.52

From the publisher:

The Great Days of Sunderland should be compulsory reading for every Black Cats fan. After a grim few years, it's important to remember that things were once very different for the club. David Potter transports us back to Sunderland's past glories - from the 'team of all the talents' that dominated English football in the 1890s, to the side that almost won the double in 1913, the great team of the 1930s that challenged the riches of Arsenal and the most recent success of 50 years ago, when Second Division Sunderland beat the mighty Leeds United in an epic FA Cup Final.

Sunderland were champions of England six times before the Second World War and have won the FA Cup twice. Each of these triumphs is captured in detail and brought to life through vivid descriptions. Learn about club legends such as Ned Doig, Hugh 'Lalty' Wilson, Charlie Buchan, Raich Carter, Bobby Gurney, Ian Porterfield and Jim Montgomery, and relive some of the moments that did so much to enrich the lives of those who packed out Newcastle Road and Roker Park.

The author:

David Potter has written many books on football and cricket on both sides of the border, and has long been fascinated by football in the north-east. He is a retired teacher, married for more than 50 years, with three children and five grandchildren. He loves walking, politics and drama as well as football and cricket. He remembers vividly the great Sunderland cup final of 1973.
