Interviews and footage from glittering FA Cup event.

The FA Cup-winning team of 1973 were guests of honour at a gala dinner on Wearside last weekend.

More than 400 supporters packed the Banqueting Suite at the Stadium of Light to mark the 40th anniversary of Sunderland's victory over Leeds at Wembley.

Eleven of the 12 players on duty that day - minus the sadly departed Ian Porterfield - returned for an emotional evening along with the FA Cup trophy itself.
