GOOD luck to Durham County Cricket Club on Saturday in their one-day cup final against Warwickshire at Lords.

I know a lot of the Sunderland fans at Turf Moor this weekend are also Durham fans, and like me, will be keen to hear updates on how Paul Collingwood’s men are getting on.

Durham’s season has almost mirrored Sunderland’s from last year, with a relegation battle successfully avoided, yet at the same time, reaching a showpiece cup final.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed though that Durham can go that one step further than Sunderland did by winning on Saturday to bring back some silverware to the North East.
