The link below is to the programme of the first football league game I ever attended. It was held at Sunderland's ground which was then at Roker Park. My father took me as I was only aged ten. Normally I then went to watch him play in goal at home and away matches for a local team called Easington Village Rovers. So our visits to Roker Park were then limited depending on his team not having a game. About a couple of years later I started watching regular matches at Roker Park with my school mates. Sunderland then playing in the top division of the Football League.
