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.
