SFPA Annual Dinner 2010 at the Stadium of Light

Once again the SFPA Annual Dinner was a sold out event, with fans mixing with a huge gathering of Sunderland legends. Amongst the former players, this year we had the honour to welcome Dennis Tueart, Bobby Kerr, Ritchie Pitt, Dick Malone, Jimmy Montgomery, Micky Horswill, Nicky Sharkey, Johnny Bollands and our club President, Niall Quinn - all of whom were happy to meet with guests, pose for pictures (see below) and sign autographs.

Compere and auctioneer for the evening was Simon Crabtree and our after dinner speaker was the irrespressible Steve Kindon.
