Sunderland legend and long-time supporter of Show Racism the Red Card, Gary Bennett, releases his biography 'The Black Cat'
"When Gary Bennett arrived at Roker Park in the summer of 1984, few people had heard of the club's new signing from Cardiff City.
In the ten years that followed he would become a Sunderland legend!
In a roller coaster career in the famous red and white stripes, Gary experienced two promotions, three relegations and four appearances at Wembley.
All these and many more memories are captured in this lavishly illustrated publication which boasts over 250 photographs, many never previously published - from Gary's early life growing up in Manchester right through to the present day covering SAFC games for Radio Newcastle and, perhaps his greatest achievement in football, working for the 'Show Racism the Red Card' campaign."
For your chance to meet Gary and get your copy signed, he is due to appear at two book signings at the Stadium of Light store on:
Tuesday 11th October, 4-6pm
Saturday 29th October, 12-2pm
