Sean English, chief operating officer for Grand Central, said: “We’re expecting a high number of football fans to choose to travel with us on Saturday 21 May, and we will be operating a ‘reservation only’ policy.

"This ensures customers who have a seat reserved on our trains, will get their seat, and we can successfully take them to London for the game and bring them home.

"We’re advising all customers to plan ahead and book before they travel and we wish Sunderland AFC all the best for the final!”
