The History Of Sunderland AFC To 1887/88 By Paul Days
Paperback: $8.14
Prints in 3-5 business days
The first historic account of Sunderland AFC appeared in the two Wearside dailies, The Sunderland Echo and the Herald, in December 1887, by which time the club was well established and important... More > enough to have its history recounted. This account was written only a few brief years after the football clubs’ formation and yet both reports contain inaccuracies, jumbled facts and confusion. A critique of the first article in the three part series, in particular, would be both illuminating and quite scathing. The transcript of that three part series, that you are about to read, published in 1887 was consolidated and sold as a booklet by The Sunderland Echo and it could be purchased for a nominal sum by members of the Sunderland public. No copies of the original book has, as far as we know, survived.< Less

More > assistance of Neilson N Kaufman, the O’s historian for nearly fifty years.

Paperback: $23.75

Having been elected into the Football League for the 1890/91 season Sunderland AFC wasted no time in getting to grips with the higher standard of football. League Champions in 1891/92, this was... More > followed by another league crown in 1892/93. Runners up to Aston Villa the following season, The Black Cats made no mistake in 1894/95 when they swept almost everyone aside, bar bogey team Aston Villa, who knocked the red and whites out of the FA Cup at the semi final stage of the tournament.
