Former Sunderland star Ambrose Fogarty has died at the age of 82.

Fogarty, from Dublin, moved to Wearside in 1957 for a fee of £3,000, and stayed at the club for seven years.

He played 174 times for the Black Cats, scoring 44 goals, with the first coming on his home debut, against Chelsea.

He won 10 caps for the Republic of Ireland while with Sunderland, and made his 11th and final appearance for his country after moving to Hartlepool United in 1963 for £10,000.

Fogarty was later appointed player-manager of both Cork Hibernians and Cork Celtic, before also managing Drumcondra, Galways United and Athlone Town.
