Mud, glorious mud in nine Sunderland scenes from the past

It’s a pretty mud selection of archive scenes

Mud, mud, glorious mud. There’s nothing quite like for bringing back memories.

We dusted off this selection of Echo archive photos which have one thing in common - the people in the pictures were drenched in mud.

From the Radio 1 Big Weekend in 2005 to rugby players in action in 2014, it’s a gallery of gunge.

Enjoy the trip back in time.
