Pop stars, new signings and fun days!

Samson and Delilah's latest blog.

Were you lucky enough to see One Direction at the Stadium of Light last week? Delilah and I had a brilliant time. It was great when they started singing Sunderland chants! The fireworks were amazing too.

One Direction was just the first of this summer’s concerts. North East Live is taking place for the second year in a row and Jessie J will sing some of her biggest hits as well as a few songs her fans may not have heard before as she headlines the event. Plus Jason Derulo is flying in all the way from America! Austin Mahone is the latest artist to be added to the line-up, I can’t wait to see him. His videos have over 360 million views on YouTube, how amazing is that?

The Black Cats have signed two new players; Billy Jones who will join in defence and midfielder, Jordi Gomez. I think they will be just purr-fect. Gus Poyet has also signed a new contract. He will be head coach for the Lads until at least 2016. The new season is going to be brilliant and the fixtures come out later this month. The new away kit will be revealed later this month too! What colour do you think it will be? Make sure you see it first right here on safc.com!

Delilah and I are putting the finishing touches to the Family Fun Day. I can’t wait to purr-fect my striking skills with the Foundation of Light’s footy games. There will be lots of funfair rides too, I’m looking forward to the big, fast rides but Delilah prefers the swings and bouncy castles. There will be stadium tours where lucky Junior Black Cats can walk out of the tunnel and see the players changing rooms and dug out.  Heart FM will also be there with their ‘Winning Whirlwind’ where you can win season cards in the Family Zone plus lots of other SAFC goodies. How cool is that? I hope I’m lucky enough to win some prizes. Adults can get their paws on tickets from the Stadium of Light ticket office now for £5 per person.
