Ahoy there me hearties, welcome back to The Roker Roundup. Your nightly source of SAFC news. Or at least the part that's worth reading anyway.

Before we find out what's been happening today, here's what happened on this day in history. In 1937, Sunderland beat Wolves 6-2 at Roker Park, but perhaps the most notable aspect of the game was the fact that Charlie Thompson was not in the Sunderland line-up. Prior to this game, Thompson had made 147 consecutive appearances for Sunderland - to this day a club record.

As for the more present day though, let's find out what's been happening...

Starting off today with the news that Craig Gordon rejected a loan move recently, not out of spite mind you. With Simon Mignolet the undisputed No.1 at the moment, there was an offer on the table for Gordon, but with injury hampering Kieren Westwood the Scot opted to stay - CLICK HERE

Stephane Sessegnon has vowed to control his temper in the future, after admitting that sitting out recently through suspension really got on his nerves. Good boy. Now sign a long-term contract! - CLICK HERE

Ryan Noble found the net for Hartlepool United on his loan debut, grabbing the winner in the side's 1-0 win away at Yeovil Town. A mini-match report of sorts is here - CLICK HERE
