SAFC v Morecambe

Meet the players

by Kate Smith

Three in store signing sessions in December.

Supporters can score a hat-trick of signing sessions in December at the club’s official retail stores.

Black Cats stars will be entertaining fans for 90 minutes away from the pitch when they visit to club stores to sign memorabilia throughout December in the build up to Christmas, making all those SAFC gifts more personal.

Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet will be joined by Carlos Cuellar and Jack Colback to kick off the first signing session on Tuesday 4 December between 4.00pm-5.30pm at the club store in The Galleries Shopping Centre, Washington.

Days later club captain Lee Cattermole, Adam Johnson and Craig Gardner will meet supporters in Debenhams, The Bridges, Sunderland, on Thursday 6 December, 4.00pm-5.30pm.

Black Cats stars Steven Fletcher, Danny Rose and James McClean will complete the three signing sessions a week later when they meet supporters on Thursday 13 December, 4.00pm-5.30pm.

Speaking ahead of the event Lee Cattermole said: “I’m looking forward to meeting the fans in the build up to Christmas. They have been great with us all season so this is a good way to thank everybody for their support.”
