Sunderland have confirmed two friendly games for this summer as part of their Premier League preparations.
The summer fun gets underway against Darlington at Heritage Park, Bishop Aucklund, just as it did last year. The new manager, whoever it is, will take his side to face the Quakers, who are led by former Sunderland midfielder Martin Gray, on July 9 for a 7.45pm kick off.
The club have also announced they will travel to League One Doncaster Rovers on July 29 (7.45pm kick off).
There isn't much more to add really. Not exactly the most glamourous pair of games in the world but plenty free dates for those.
