Sunderland Former Players Association

Chairman's Welcome

On behalf of the Sunderland Former Players Association I welcome you to our website. I hope you find it useful and interesting.

I’m very proud to have recently been appointed Chairman of the Association and would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to Ritchie Pitt our first Chairman, Jim Montgomery and Dick Malone my predecessor, for the tremendous effort they both put in to establishing and developing our Association.

Under their stewardship the Association has grown in numbers and we now have over 130 members, including a number who live overseas.

I’m looking forward to the challenge of widening our activities, especially in respect of the support we give to local charities and good causes, and am delighted that I will have the support of Nick Sharkey as Vice Chairman and all the other committee members in trying to achieve this.

The Association helps our members stay in touch with each other, through both social and sporting activities such as golf events. We welcome enquiries about any Former Players and this web page is intended to provide an easily accessible resource for anyone interested in the players who have helped to make Sunderland the great club that it is.

If you are a former player with Sunderland AFC we would love you to get in touch. For all former players we have created a Question and Answer sheet. Please download your copy here and then send it to the address in the 'Contact' page.

Look forward to hearing from you.
Nicky Sharkey
