The Salut! Sunderland 3m hits competition. Nearly there

Help Salut! Sunderland: visit this site and, if you like what you see, buy

VillaH(FT)

Malcolm Dawson writes…….Sixsmith Towers was a haven of joy and celebration this morning as Pete Sixsmith listened to Test Match Special’s description of Durham cricketer Ben Stokes totally destroying the South African bowling.

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 3 Aston Villa 1. Defoe ends drought, gives hope

VillaH(FT)

Monsieur Salut writes: most of us were prepared to settle for a win however it came and this one came in an uneven way.
