About

Salut! Sunderland is part of a group of websites run by Colin Randall*, Sunderland fan and journalist. Salut! is the parent site, dealing with his life and times in France and Abu Dhabi (and more besides), Salut! Live covers folk and roots music and Salut! North lazily describes his childhood and youth in the North East. The site could not be what it is without the sterling efforts of Pete Sixsmith, almost ever-present at Sunderland games home and away, Joan Dawson for her superb stand-in stints in the earlier part of the site’s existence and a series of other supporters who contribute articles from time to time.

Joan’s brother Malcolm is the deputy editor, a position that earns him the same round figure paid to the editor. Born and raised in Hetton-le-Hole, he is back in the North East after 33 years teaching in the East Midlands, where he became information officer and for a time chairman of the Heart of England Branch of the SAFCSA. John McCormick is the associate editor, Nic Wiseman assistant editor and Jake illustrator-in-chief though everyone is welcome to play around with titles.

* The Salut! websites are owned by CRANDALL Ltd, registered address 29 Niagara Ave., Ealing, London W5 4UD
