St Augustine’s vs Sunderland FC Football Match

In August 2015, to mark the 150th anniversary of The Northern League being won by St Augustines Football Club (yes, us, we were as astonished as you !)  we recreated a match that really took place, St Augustine’s played Sunderland FC the very first time the Wearsiders wore their iconic red and white stripes.  Sunderland won that match 1-0, but if you want to find out the score in the ‘replay’ you’ll have to visit us in the Parish Centre.  There’s a full report on the wall of the corridor underneath a replica shirt.

Anyway, after the game we all went to the PC garden for a barbecue.  There were fun, games, ice creams, face painting, treasure hunters and a band.
