In Search Of The Double! Sunderland AFC 1912/13 brings to life perhaps the greatest season ever in the football club’s long and eventful history and the club’s greatest ever team.
This book seeks to discover whether the 1912/13 Sunderland team were the best to ever wear the red and white stripes. That season the Rokerites came the closest to winning the coveted league and cup double, yet the names of Albert Milton, Frank Cuggy, Jackie Mordue and the rest of Sunderland’s league champions and FA Cup finalists that season have long since been forgotten by many. This book looks at the matches and the characters that shaped an immensely successful season for Sunderland AFC and its followers as well as the political, economic and social turmoil of pre-war Britain.
