Jake: ‘with thanks to all opposing fans who participate’



See how we introduced this year’s awards at http://salutsunderland.com/2017/05/haway-its-awards-time-again-with-bournemouth-middlesbrough-swansea-making-early-running/

The suspense mounts.

Early next week, Salut! Sunderland will announce the winners of the HAWAYS, our annual Who are You? awards for the best interviews with opposing supporters.

The prizes shall be:

* a year’s subscription
to the ever-brilliant magazine When Saturday Comes

* a voucher for £50 to spend with Classic Football Shirts

* a print from Art of Football. You’ll recall their highly individual depictions of Jermain Defoe’s winning volley against Newcastle United, Kevin Phillips and the heroes of 1973. A winner choosing this prize would naturally look more widely around Art of football’s range

The votes are in, or nearly. From the judges’ early returns, it looks like interviewees from one of the four clubs in the headline – Bournemouth, Chelsea, Shrewsbury and Watford – will take first prize.

But there may still be time for a surprise, a change in the running order (the headline sticks to alphabetical) and even the sudden emergence of a dark horse.

All interviews for this season can been seen at this link.

Salut! Sunderland is written, illustrated and edited by - and principally for - supporters of Sunderland AFC. The site aims to be sufficiently literate and entertaining to appeal to people who do not follow SAFC but enjoy good football writing.
