  • Running: Virtual London Marathon 2020

    The decision to sign up for the Virtual London Marathon was a little bit of a late one. The reason I decided to sign up was to test my fitness levels and really see where I was in terms of the 26.2 mile distance. Considering two marathons had been cancelled this year. The price to […]

  • EOTN Ambassador – Sunderland Half Marathon

    Having taken part in my first Sunderland City Half Marathon in 2017 I jumped at the opportunity to apply to become an Ambassador for the race.

  • FA Regional Talent Clubs

    On Friday 29th April it was announced who had been successful in the new restructure to the Elite girls game. Replacing the Centre of Excellence set up is the new Regional Talent Clubs. The main difference is that now it is tiered (very much like the boys Academy system). The license is subject to Sport England […]

  • 2014/15 Season: Sunderland 0-2 Arsenal

    Sunderland were looking to bounce back after the 8-0 hammering by Southampton the week before, playing Arsenal was never going to be an easy task for the black cats. Arsenal could claim to be missing a massive nine first team players, but the starting line up was still very strong especially with Alexis Sanchez leading […]

  • Sunderland 0 – 1 Newcastle

    Only the second game of the Premiership season saw the Wear/Tyne Derby taking place. With Sunderland bringing in 10 new players and more players leaving St James Park than we have brought in, it was always going to be a strange game to guess the result of. Pre-match all kind of facts and stats were flying […]

  • 2010/11 Season Review

    First season back into Premier League (where we belong, I must add) and obviously at the start of the season we were very much tipped to go straight back down. We did not really make many signings or at least proven in the Premiership players. We brought in James Perch who became quite the scapegoat amongst […]

  • Henderson and Carroll doing the North East Proud!

    It’s been a long time since Newcastle and Sunderland both had player’s in the England squad let alone team. But that changed this week when Andy Carroll and Jordan Henderson both were called up to the full squad for the first time. They have both represented their country at youth levels and have had brilliant […]

  • Why Sunderland beating Chelsea is great for football!

    Sunderland went to Stamford Bridge yesterday with everything against them, no team had even scored at there this season, the last two games they played seen them conceded 13 goals, no one gave them a chance. Even die-hard Sunderland fans would have just hoped for a draw and taken it before the game kicked off. But as […]

  • Newcastle 5 – 1 Sunderland

    I spent the whole weekend in the build up to the Derby game feeling both nervous and excited. In all honesty I thought the game would be a draw after a very close and tight affair – but that could not be further from what happened! The lads went goal crazy and outplayed Sunderland all […]
