Monty's Table

Sunderland AFC are fully committed to making match days a great experience for all their supporters and the Club recognizes that being able to meet and chat informally with the great players of previous years is one way to achieve this. To make it possible the Club have established the ‘Legends Table’ which is hosted by Jim Montgomery who invites a different Celebrity Guest to join him for each home game.

The Club are keen to give as many supporters as possible the opportunity to share in this unique experience and are pleased to let supporters know that the Celebrity Guest will visit the Quinn's Sports Bar both before and after the game to meet the fans, sign autographs, pose for photographs and answer any questions that might be put to him.

So- if you want to be part of this unique experience get into the Quinn's Sports Bar in good time and enjoy the company of the match day ‘Legend’.


Upcoming guests for the 'Legends Table'



Sunday 19th August 2018  -  Kick-off 3.00pm



An outstanding midfielder with an eye for goal, Gordon was only 17 when he was handed his Sunderland debut in a Division One game against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns towards the end of the 1984-85 season. It was the start of a lengthy career at Roker Park that would see the Newcastle-born youngster pick up two ‘Young Player of the Year’ awards before going on to clock up over 400 appearances for the club, a record that earned him a place in Sunderland’s top ten all-time appearance makers. 
Gordon was a key player in the Sunderland team that lifted the Third Division championship in 1988 and then won promotion back to the top flight two years later. A regular goal-scorer for the club, Gordon possessed exceptional aerial ability and Sunderland fans will no doubt remember his dramatic late winner against Chelsea in the 1992 FA Cup quarter-final replay at Roker Park. He picked up a losers medal in the final against Liverpool at Wembley that year and eventually went on to net 61 goals for Sunderland before his career on Wearside came to a close during the 1996 close season. Gordon then joined Bury before moving on to Burnley where he enjoyed five seasons with the Turf Moor club before retiring from the game in 2003.

Gordon Armstrong celebrates his dramatic late winner against Chelsea in the 1992 FA Cup 6th round replay.
