Extra-Ord-inary book signing in-store.

Fans can get their hands on personalised gifts this Christmas as a former Black Cat will be signing copies of his brand new autobiography in store.

Cult hero Richard Ord made over 250 appearances on Wearside and he will be hosting two signing sessions in the build up to Christmas to where fans can meet the ex-Black Cat.

Richard ‘Dickie’ Ord will be at the Stadium of Light store on Saturday 8 December from 12noon-1.30pm to sign copies of his 'Who Needs Cantona When We’ve Got Dickie Ord' autobiography.

Weeks later and Ord will be in the club store at Debenhams, The Bridges Shopping Centre, Sunderland on Thursday 20 December, 6.00pm-7.00pm.

The former centre-back beat Manchester United star Eric Cantona with some fine skill at Roker Park back in 1996, and chants from the terraces stuck with the defender throughout his career on Wearside.

Sunderland AFC have also launched new books this month with The Complete Record, the 2013 Annual, Sunderland Miscellany and Match of My Life all available in club stores and online at
