Scores of youngsters meet players in store.
Black Cats stars Oscar Ustari, Ignacio Scocco and Santiago Vergini popped in the official club store at the Stadium of Light to meet fans during the Easter school break.
The three players chatted with supporters, signed autographs and posed for photographs for over an hour.
Front man Scocco was overwhelmed by the turnout at the signing session: "It was great to meet the fans,” he told safc.com afterwards.
“Since arriving at the club they’ve made me so welcome, it’s nice to get the chance to see them face to face and thank them.”
