Jake combines history, art and hope. Oh that yesterday's result had been the same.

Sunderland played Aston Villa at home for the first time as a Football League club on Jan 19 1891, home being the Newcastle Road ground. All of 6,000 souls turned up to watch a 5-1 win, an occasion commemorated in two of Jake’s images. There had been a heavier victory, 7-2, in a friendly the […]
