Ex men: Fulham

by Ashley Houghton

Players who have represented both SAFC and Fulham.

Dickson Etuhu
The Nigerian international signed for the Black Cats in 2007 and played 20 league games in his only season at the Stadium of Light.

He left Wearside for London at the start of the 2008 season and went on to make 91 league appearances, picking up a UEFA Europa League runners-up medal in the process, before joining Blackburn Rovers in the summer of 2012.

Vic Halom
Halom was one of the key players in Sunderland’s 1973 FA Cup winning squad, scoring key goals in the fifth round replay against cup favourites Manchester City and in the semi-final against Arsenal.

The striker was one of Bob Stokoe’s earliest signings and repaid all of the £35,000 that Stokoe paid Luton for his services, with some memorable performances in the famous red and white.

Halom played for Fulham before joining Luton, scoring 22 goals in 72 games.

Kevin Ball
Now, Senior Professional Development Coach at Sunderland, Ball is 12th on the all-time appearance list for the Black Cats.

With nearly 400 appearances to his name, Ball is highly regarded by fans at the SoL, and the hardened midfielder was part of the 1992 FA Cup runners-up squad in his second year with the club.

Ball spent nine years on Wearside as a player, winning the Player of the Season award in the 1996-97 season, before moving on to a brief spell at Fulham towards the end of his career.
