Welcome along peeps to another Roker Roundup. We read the news, pick out the bits worth reading and bring them to you on a night time to save you wading through all the crap.

Today is March 29th, and for your little bit of daily SAFC trivia here's what happened on this day in 1986. It's not a lot if we're being honest, but still let's not deny anyone their moment of glory. On loan midfielder Tony Ford came off the bench to grab a debut goal - his only goal for Sunderland - and secure a 1-1 home draw with Bradford.

Now that's out the way, let's have today's bits of exciting news...

Sunderland reserves were beaten 3-0 by Wigan Athletic yesterday. A very young side fell to goals from Callum McManaman and Jamie McCormack. Despite this, they stay second in the league - CLICK HERE

Lee Cattermole has attempted to rally his teammates for this weekends game and the end of the season, by reiterating what many fans think, that there's still plenty to play for this season - CLICK HERE

There's a sportsman's dinner at the Stadium Of Light tonight, and the guest of honour is Peter Reid. Reidy should have some tales to tell, so if you've got some spare wonga, get yourself over and help support the club's official charity, The SAFC Foundation - CLICK HERE

Nicklas Bendtner has got himself warmed up for the weekend by allegedly going on a bit of a binge around Newcastle with his mates.. Something about seven Jagerbombs? We don't quite know, but we do love the picture which accompanies the article a hell of a lot - CLICK HERE

Martin O'Neill reckons that the club may not have coped as well as we have through the injury and suspension run without the additions of Wayne Bridge and Sotirios Kyrgiakos. Bridge certainly, Kyrgiakos... hmmmm. Anyway, Martin's impressed, and thankful here - CLICK HERE

The club have handed out six scholarships to young footballers both local and from abroad, as the academy intake for next season has been announced. Notables in there include Irishman Steven McCarthy and USA youth, Lynden Gooch - CLICK HERE
