Sleek Sixer now …

 

 

Put it this way. Pete Sixsmith gives a lot more to the football-supporting public than he gets back.

He collects bits and bobs of beer money, the odd mug or print or match ticket paid for,  but nothing that remotely reflects all he does, mostly for Salut! Sunderland but also in unpaid appearances on radio, in books and on other people’s websites. And he’s Father Christmas to boot – look out for him ho-ho-hoing his way through County Durham and Tyne and Wear in December.

We’re accustomed to the analysis, the seven-word instant verdict (Sixer’s Sevens) and the post-match Soapbox reports. But have you noticed how he also comes up with great ideas for series? “Sunderland’s 10 relegations”,  “Sunderland’s Twelve Days of Christmas” and now “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground” (or team if a home game).

Pete Sixsmith then (not so long ago)

 

This is the story so far for those who have missed it:

 

 

 

 

 

Please have a look. Next stop – a good sports publishers who may see the merit in this series, if only Sixer can keep it up.
