YOUNG Sunderland AFC fans are in for a scream this Halloween half-term with a chance to meet three of the club’s new signings.

Black Cats’ stars Jack Rodwell, Will Buckley and Patrick van Aanholt will be on hand to meet supporters in the store at the Stadium of Light, signing memorabilia and posing for photographs, on Tuesday, October 28, from 4pm-5pm.

Sunderland midfielder Jack Rodwell said he couldn’t wait to meet his young supporters.

He said: “I’m looking forward to meeting the fans who have been great since I arrived at the club.

“Everybody is so passionate about football and you see Sunderland shirts wherever you go, so it will be nice to get to meet people up close and thank them for their support.”

Sunderland hosts various player-signing sessions throughout the season, in all three of the club’s retail stores at the Stadium of Light, Debenhams in The Bridges Shopping Centre and The Galleries Shopping Centre, Washington.
