Pictures from Mike Chambers of the last time the FA Cup was in the region, ( and for all you Newcastle fans amongst us… it was when Sunderland won it in 1973)

Colin Hogg had previously sent the picture below  - a press cutting of the team being escorted from Durham Railway Station back to Roker Park !!  It’s really about time it was brought back again by one of the regions teams

All these photo’s (and more) can be viewed on our ‘Those Were The Day’s’ album in the Photo Gallery

I believe the DC in the photo is Ian Fox who was a very good rugby player.

I was there when the photograph was taken. Somewhere I have a similar picture. Joe dropped the plinth and put a ding in it.
Yes, that is DC Ian Fox.
