Ex star takes to hot seat on his 83rd birthday.

Former Sunderland and Hull City star John McSeveney is set to take to the hot-seat in the Black Cats Bar ahead of Saturday’s game against the Tigers.  

The former winger, who played 35 games for the Lads between 1951 and 1955, celebrates his 83rd birthday on the day of the game – so be sure to catch up with the Scot, who no doubt will have a few tales to tell!

He also made 161 appearances for Hull, where he finished his career after a successful three year spell.

Supporters can hear from McSeveney when he visits the Black Cats Bar at around 1.30pm on Saturday.

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.
