New Legion out now

by Rob Mason

Latest issue available.

The new issue of Legion of Light now be with season card holders ahead of the opening home game of the season against Manchester United.

New signing Jack Rodwell talks about why he’s come to Sunderland and what he views as his own strengths as a player.

There’s also a feature on the other new faces to arrive over the summer plus coverage of the pre-season trip to Portugal as well as a look at how the under-21s impressed in the build up to the big kick off.

The official club magazine also explores the new partnership with DC United, visits the fabulous new Beach House and analyses a week in the life of SAFC Ladies player Kelly McDougall.   

As commemorations of the centenary of the start of the Great War continue, Legion remembers former Sunderland player Private Jack Huggins who joined the Durham Light Infantry and gave his life at the battle of Ypres, just five days after arriving in France.       

There’s an in depth re-appraisal of the career of former Sunderland manager Alan Brown, news of the latest addition to the historical items on display at the Stadium of Light and as the Black Cats get ready to prowl again, a fabulous photograph of the kittens born to the original black cat who lived at Roker Park a century ago.
