Magic moments and sad losses - things you'll remember from the 1990s in Sunderland

Pop on some double denim and pick up a Magic Eye picture as we take a trip down memory lane to the 1990s.

It was a momentous decade for Sunderland, seeing us become a city, our last pit close, Roker Park make way for the Stadium of Light, Vaux brewing come to an end and the Black Cats make it to the FA Cup Final, among others. Here we take a look at some key moments and magic memories from Sunderland in the Nineties.

This picture was taken at the last game at the stadium. It closed in 1997 to make way for the Stadium of Light
