Former star to hit bar

by Kate Smith

Armstrong geared up for pre-match chat.

Former SAFC fans' favourite Gordon Armstrong will take to the Black Cats Bar ahead of the Chelsea game this Saturday.

Armstrong is the club's seventh highest appearance maker with 416 to his name as well as 61 goals. 

He wrote his name into the club's history books a little over 20 years ago in a certain FA Cup quarter-final replay against Chelsea in 1992.

With both sides level up stepped Armstrong to send a header crashing into the far corner of the net and Sunderland into the next round of the competition.

Supporters can hear from Armstrong when he visits the Black Cats Bar at around 1.30pm.

Ahead of every game at the Stadium of Light, a special guest takes to the Black Cats Bar for a pre-match chat.

Fans can also enjoy a complimentary dish of the day, free matchday programme and take advantage of drinks offers in the Black Cats Bar every matchday.
