Cup winner hits the Bar

by Kate Smith

1973 star set for pre-match chat.

Fans in the Black Cats Bar can catch up with Sunderland legend Ron Guthrie this Saturday.

The FA Cup winning full-back is set to take to the hot seat for a pre-match talk ahead of Sunderland's home clash with Arsenal at the Stadium of Light.

Guthrie made 77 appearances in his two years on Wearside after joining from Newcastle United in January 1973.

He went on to be part of Bob Stokoe’s FA Cup winning side, just four months into his time at Roker Park.

One of his two Sunderland goals came in that cup run when he scored the second goal in the 2-0 defeat of Luton Town in the sixth round.

Guthrie will be in the Black Cats Bar from 1.30pm on Saturday.

The talk-ins are part of Black Cats Bar matchdays, where fans can enjoy a complimentary home-cooked meal, free programme and take advantage of drinks offers.

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