Pre-match chat in safe hands

by Kate Smith

Former stopper in the hot seat.

Derek Forster will take to the Black Cats Bar ahead of the Swansea City game on Tuesday.

The former goalkeeper made 19 appearances for SAFC throughout the 1960s and the early 1970s. 

He was thrust into the spotlight at the age of 15 following an injury to Sunderland legend Jimmy Montgomery and made his debut against Leicester City in August 1964, becoming the First Division's youngest ever player, as well as Sunderland's.

Supporters can hear from Forster when he visits the Black Cats Bar at around 6.45pm.

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.
