Tuesday 21 April – Sunderland Are Champions!
Sunderland arrived with a mission plan. And they executed it to the letter becoming Division One Champions for 1969-70.
Sunderland have been erratic in the second half of the season. They dropped many points, which allowed Nottingham Forest to skip over them and take top spot. This game required courage, calmness and a resolute spirit. Sunderland showed all those traits and more. They were determined to win and with Tueart at his scoring flair, the inevitable happened. Sunderland are champions on the last game of the season. And what a great season it was.
