Stewart Donald has revealed fresh plans for Sunderland fans

The Black Cats’ owner joined supporters in the away end at Spotland on Tuesday evening, as Jack Ross’ side claimed a 2-1 victory over Rochdale.

And Donald has now revealed that he plans to join the South Shields branch of the club’s supporters group on their coach to Lincoln City on October 5.

This will be the latest step the Sunderland chief has taken to engage with fans, who have struggled to connect with previous regimes at the club.
