Club mascots hit Asia

by Kate Smith

Samson the Cat has joined fellow mascots in Hong Kong.

Ahead of Sunderland's participation in the Barclays Asia Trophy, club mascot Samson the Cat took himself off to Hong Kong to check out the city. 

Upon his arrival, Samson bumped into fellow mascots from all of the other clubs taking part in the competition - Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and South China - and the quartet wasted no time in familiarising themselves with their new surroundings.
