SAFC centenary year, to mark it, SAFC played an England X1.

England won 2-0, two goals from Bob Latchford.

Did anyone go, does anyone remember it?

Not much info on it.

1979...

I had been married to Mrs H the first for 9 years and my son was 2 going on 3.

Was working at DJB in Peterlee in engineering and spent most Friday nights at the Catholic club in Peterlee playing cards and drinking.

My life was planned and life was sweet, the plans did not work out and I dont remember that game.

Didn't Shaun Elliot play for 'England' that night? Or was there also an England 'B' Team match that season at Roker?

It doesn't surprise me that anyone who was there remembers little about it.  It was rubbish.  I went and kept the programme, which is the only reason I know anything about it either.

The Sunderland team was Barry Siddall, Steve Whitworth, Joe Bolton, Jeff Clarke, Shaun Elliott, Bob Hindmarch, Kevin Arnott, Tim Gilbert, Alan Brown, Gary Rowell, Barry Dunn, Chris Turner, Gordon Chisholm.

The 'England' team was John Burridge (Crystal Palace) John Gidman (Everton) John Bailey (Everton) Steve Williams (Southampton) Stuart Boam (Newcastle) Billy Gilbert (Crystal Palace) Steve Daley (Manchester City) David Armstrong (Middlesbrough) Bob Latchford (Everton) Peter Withe (Newcastle) David Hodgson, Irving Nattrass, and Craig Johnston (all Middlesbrough).

At the last minute they got Dennis Tueart Billy Hughes and Dick Malone to play, but Tueart could only play for the first twenty minutes as he had to be off to open a night club somewhere.

Nobody put themselves out, and the only real football we saw was from Malone, who frankly, outclassed everybody else on the field.  The only other memorable thing about it was that Barry Siddall decided to swap places with Chris Turner at half-time, and played the rest of the game at centre-forward.  At least Barry buggered about in an entertaining way, unlike some of the others, who just buggered about!

I was next to a mining engineer, who had flown in from Peru especially for that game.  I felt really sorry for him.  Something like 20,000 miles round trip for that!
