Underneath The Roker End
Sunderland AFC 1932/33
Here we have the players and officials of Sunderland AFC Underneath The Roker End in 1932/33. A quirky scenario for a team picture. Perhaps it was raining? Who knows. Bobby Gurney is still central to the team but is ably supported by the likes of Gallacher and Alex Hastings. Manager Johnny Cochrane of course plotting and scheming the usual defeat of the opposition behind the scenes, backed to the hilt by an ambitious board of directors, always aiming to make SAFC the number 1 club.
