Peter Reid, Kevin Phillips and Chris Waddle will discuss their illustrious careers on the night.

One of the most successful strikers in Sunderland’s history, Kevin Phillips is still hugely popular on Wearside from his time playing for the club from 1997 to 2003.

His many highlights included a stunning 30-yard strike against Chelsea which saw the Black Cats beat the Blues 4-1.

From the same era, Peter Reid took over the managerial hot seat at Roker Park in March 1995, saving SAFC from relegation from the Championship and then leading the club to the Premier League. During his tenure, SAFC twice finished seventh in the Premier League.
