Roy Keane famously said the less time Nyron Nosworthy spent on the ball, the better for all concerned. He was probably right; a much-loved cult figure at the Stadium of Light, Nyron in possession anywhere near our goal was nevertheless cause for apprehension, not excitement.

But Michael Ganley and his colleagues at the Sunderland AFC fans’ museum are confident our Nyron will be on the the ball to everyone’s benefit when he attends a fund-raising event there on July 5.

Take a look at the poster above – £15 a head with food thrown in for an evening with the charismatic defender. Expect bags of interesting snippets and stories.

Another spot of news for the museum. You will remember that our first and second-placed Who are You? award winners, Doug Shields (Bristol Rovers) and Richard Hall (Walsall), asked that their prizes should go to deserving Sunderland causes.

A superb Art of Football print of SuperKev and Niall will therefore be on show soon at the museum.

And a 3Retro Sunderland top will be among the prizes at Valley Road Academy’s primary school summer fayre in July. Thanks 3Retro, Art of Football and When Saturday Comes magazine for your generous sponsorship. The year’s subscription to WSC – less suitable to donate to charity – will go to a grateful third-placed Rochdale fan, John Beckett.

These were noble gestures on the part of Doug and Richard and thanks to them, too.
