One thought on “Gary Rowell’s Goals!

  1. I was there for the hat trick against Newcastle on 24-2-1979, it was a great result , a magnificent performance from Sunderland and a fantastic 23rd birthday present for me. I’m also a Seaham born lad, I now live in Nottinghamshire but still follow the fortunes of Sunderland. I was also there to see Rowell score his first goal in an away game at Hull City a match we also won 4-1. HAPPY DAYS.
