BLACK Cats legend Marco Gabbiadini has scored a winner off the pitch.
The ex-Sunderland player and his wife Deborah now run a bed and breakfast, Bishops Guesthouse, which has received a Guest Accommodation of the Year Award.
His business was honoured at the Visit York Tourism Awards ceremony.
Marco retired from football in 2004 to run Bishops Guesthouse, which is a restored Victorian townhouse in York.
The striker, who appears on BBC Radio Newcastle’s Total Sport show, signed for Sunderland for £80,000 in 1987 and made 185 appearances, scoring 87 goals, before being sold to Crystal Palace in the 1991/92 season.
