Heart of England Branch













The Heart of England Branch of the Sunderland Supporters' Association exists to serve the needs of exiled Mackems and supporters of the world's greatest football club living in the English Midlands.

Founded after the epic Play Off Final defeat the branch owes its existence to the efforts of founder members Julie Harris, Steve Hay, Chris Herriott and Paul Walsh. They felt the need to re-establish a branch in the Midlands after passing car loads of fans on the motorways whilst travelling to games.
Covering the largest area of any of the branches from as far east as Milton Keynes, as far west as Hereford, as far south as Oxford and as far north as Derby, it currently numbers over 50 members who all share the passion of following the mighty Red and Whites.
The branch provides opportunities for Sunderland Supporters to get together for informal meetings and to follow their team home and away sharing the ups and downs that are a part of life when following Sunderland AFC.

The Branch is proud to have ex club captain Kevin Ball as its President.

Kevin has been a great President for the branch, he has organised signings for fundraising and has made a couple of visits down to spend the evening with us.

We have also had visits from Lord Gary Rowell of Seaham, Bobby Kerr, Dave Watson, Len Ashurst, John O'Hare, Gary Bennett and Niall Quinn.
