1890 – Legendary goalkeeper Ted Doig joins Sunderland from Arbroath. The Scotsman won four titles with the Black Cats and his record of seven consecutive clean sheets is yet to be equalled.

2005 – Newly promoted Sunderland claimed their first point of the 2005-06 season with a 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion at the Stadium of Light. Gary Breen opened the scoring for Mick Mccarthy’s side before a late Zoltan Gera strike cancelled out the Irish international’s early goal.
