Club historian Rob Mason pays tribute to Nigel Saddington...
The news that former centre half Nigel Saddington has passed away at the age of 53 came as a shock to the club, who pass on their condolences to Nigel’s family and friends.
Sunderland born, Nigel started his league career with Doncaster Rovers before coming to Sunderland and making five appearances under Lawrie McMenemy.
Saddington’s Sunderland debut came in September 1986 in the equivalent of the Checkatrade Trophy, Nigel netting a penalty in a successful shoot out against Barnsley. He went on to make three league appearances plus having another game in the FA Cup.
Moving on to Carlisle Nigel became captain and as well as playing against Liverpool in the FA Cup went on to play 97 league games, once scoring 10 goals in a season. At the age of 25 Saddington was diagnosed with M.E. and released by the Cumbrians.
He continued to play football, firstly with Gateshead and then in local football, earning a living outside the game as a car salesman.
Nigel also was the only former player known to buy a house on the former site of Roker Park. Always a quiet and popular player, Nigel Saddington will always be fondly remembered by everyone who knew him and saw him fulfil his ambition of playing for his hometown club.

Have to admit I could not remember this man at all but then I have expunged most of Mcenemy's (not a typo) 'reign' from my memory - because as bad as the last two-three years have been for SAFC that was the WORST Sad

But passing away at 53 is very sad and any former player deserves a mention so RIP and condolences to family and friends.
