Former star a hit in bar

Suggett in spotlight at the weekend.

Former Black Cats and Baggies star Colin Suggett entertained crowds ahead of Saturday's game at the Stadium of Light.

Suggett took to the Black Cats Bar for a pre-match chat, and was welcomed with rapturous applause when fans were reminded that the forward had scored in every derby he'd played in for Sunderland.

He reminisced about his time at Roker Park, where he began his career in the late 1960s.

Despite moving to the Midlands to join West Bromwich Albion for a record fee of 
£100,000 in the summer of 1969, he revealed that he had never moved from Wearside and remains red and white through and through.

The talk-ins are part of Black Cats Bar matchdays, where fans can enjoy a complimentary dish of the day, free matchday programme and take advantage of various drinks offers.

Tickets are priced at £50, for more information call 0871 911 1500.
