Mascot excited after Peterborough win.

Hey Junior Black Cats,

Are you enjoying the new season? We had a great win against Peterborough last week at the Stadium of Light in the Capital One Cup! 2-0 to the Black Cats! Giaccherini and Roberge scored great goals, guaranteeing Sunderland’s place in the fourth round of the Cup. They are proving to be really great new singings this season. I think that they and the rest of our new players are going to be purr-fect. Who is your favourite signing for the 2013-14 season?

Well done to Aaron, age 11, who bagged himself a pair of shin pads and Connor who was lucky enough to win 2 tickets to the Liverpool game in the Family Zone at the Peterborough match last Tuesday. It was great to see you again at the game on Sunday Connor when the Lads took on The Reds. Bethany and Erin were brilliant at the new ‘Samson or Delilah’ game, they each won  a pair of tickets to watch the Black Cats take on Manchester United on 5th October. Don’t forget Sibbers from Real Radio will be giving away match tickets, stadium tour vouchers, player posters and lots of other SAFC goodies at every match so I hope you can come along to see us at the Stadium of Light.

Lucy, age 3, took on her Dad in her first game of FIFA 13 on the Family Zone play stations. I can’t wait until we get the new FIFA 14 so I can play against Delilah. Who do you think will score the most goals?

Are you enjoying being back at school? I love it. I’ll be playing on the footie team this year. Our school kit is red and white just like the Black Cats, how cool is that?

Have you seen the Foundation of Light’s soccer courses? You can find out all about them in the rest of my email. I hope I’m allowed to go so I can practice my footie skills. There are sessions for girls too so Delilah can join in the fun and practise her shooting.

I hope you’re looking forward to the games coming up in October! Hopefully we’ll win them all! Haway The Lads!

Don’t forget to check out the rest of my email where you can bag yourself an SAFC money box!

We love to see what you have been up to, remember to send us your pictures and you could star in our next magazine or on our website, email them to

Bye for now,
