FAREWELL: A horse-drawn hearse arrives at St Andrew's Church, Roker, carrying the coffin of Gary Breeds.


Published on the
HUNDREDS of mourners gathered to remember the life of a former footballer.

Tributes poured in from across the footballing fraternity after the death of Gary Breeds, 44, from Fulwell, who had shown early promise on the pitch.
A well-known character in Sunderland, people flocked to St Andrew’s Church, Roker, today to remember him.
Gary, who played for Sunderland AFC and England youth teams, was the youngest-ever player at the time to be capped for England Under-18s, when he was just 15.
In Saturday’s match day programme for SAFC’s clash against Arsenal, the club paid tribute to Gary, who lost his battle with liver cancer earlier this month.

It read: “The club passes its condolences to the family of Gary Breeds. Rated as perhaps the most talented youngster to emerge on Wearside for a generation, Gary’s potential as a footballer was never realised.
“Having attended Bobby Robson’s School of Excellence at Lilleshall, he turned down a queue of pursuers to sign for his hometown club.”
Gary played alongside Gary Owers and Richard Ord in Chris McMenemy’s youth side. In his later years he worked in asbestos removal.
His family say they have been touched by the tributes.
Elder brother Robbie Breeds, 56, said: “The family has been overwhelmed by this. He was a very lovable character and well respected.”
Following a service at St Andrew’s, Gary was interred at Mere Knowles cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations were made to Macmillan Cancer Support and The Bobby Robson Foundation.
