Sixty years is a long time to be employed in any industry.
In fact, where else could you find that!
For this bloke to have spent so much time at Sunderland is a remarkable achievement.
Happy retirement George :thumbup:


What was that you said again?

What can I say? This is something and someone that I didn't even know.
May I say thanks to George Baker for all the time and effort he put into the club :cheers:
If only other people were so loyal.

Yes, but it's usually a little less.
