On this day in 1997, Sunderland AFC bid farewell to Roker Park after 99 years.

After defeating Everton 3-0 in the last competitive game at the memorable ground, the Lads faced the Toffees' Merseyside counterparts Liverpool in a farewell post-season friendly.

John Mullin scored the only goal in a 1-0 win as Sunderland bowed out against the Reds, who were also the first away team to play at Roker Park.
