NZ4058 : Roker Park August 1976

taken 42 years ago, near to Roker, Sunderland, Great Britain

Roker Park August 1976
Roker Park August 1976
This is Sunderland about to kick off over 30 years ago against Arsenal. The Roker End to the left is uncovered and the stand opposite was known as the Clock Stand. If you look carefully you can see the Match of The Day cameras on top of the stand.

The ground is now gone and has a housing estate built on it now. I think there maybe a Clock Stand Drive. There is also a Goalmouth Close and of course the aptly named Promotion Close. Happy Days.
