Well said, Jake

For those Sunderland supporters who take the trouble to visit these pages regularly, it will come as no surprise that we are currently running a series called Branch Lines.

Its purpose is to introduce readers to the many branches of the Sunderland AFC Supporters’ Association (SAFCSA) that have been created, but also – where applicable – to the more informal groups of SAFC fans that may also exist.

And our chosen way of approaching the task has been to ask individuals concerned with those branches to do the introductions rather than just have them written about by Monsieur Salut or his colleagues at Salut! Sunderland.

So far, we have featured Greater Manchester, London & SE and Heart of England. See any or all at this link.

There are more and they too, are deserving of mention here. If you represent such a branch or belong to one, please make contact or get someone to do so. It would be heartening to extend the series to as wide a spectrum of the global Sunderland-supporting community as possible.

This is how to e-mail M Salut; just click on this link. We’ll take it from there.

And thanks again to our illustrator Jake, who came up some time ago with the idea of featuring some overseas groups with which we will – at last – be trying to make contact.

      I bet you’re talking about the Heart of England one, Jeremy, not my invitation to others to get involved. And you’d be right: check out http://salutsunderland.com/2018/09/branch-lines-sunderland-supporters-in-the-heart-of-england/ everyone
