Another competition winner hosted in Strongbow Suite.

Sunderland fan Peter Crann spent the day in the company of Sunderland legends as the Black Cats drew 1-1 with Norwich last weekend, thanks to an exclusive competition in partnership with Strongbow.

Peter was selected as the winner of the Strongbow caption contest, bagging himself a pair of VIP seats for the clash with the Canaries in the process.

He was hosted in the Strongbow Suite at the Stadium of Light and chatted with Nick Sharkey, the only man alive to score five goals in a game for Sunderland.

“When I entered the competition I never thought I had a chance of winning so I was over the moon when I got the call to say I'd won,” Chris said.

“I brought my mate and we both had a fantastic day; we were overwhelmed by how we were treated in the Strongbow Suite."

The competition opens an hour and a half before each game, when a picture is posted on the club’s official Twitter account (

Fans are invited to reply with their captions, with a winner selected around 48 hours after the game and rewarded with VIP seats for the succeeding home fixture.
