THE ASHBROOKE BOYS - A SPORTS CLUB AT WAR 1914 - 1918

Between 2014 and 2018, the board  in the corridor between the bar and lounge was used to recall the efforts of members of the then Sunderland Cricket and Football Club who served between 1914 and 1918. It now shows the final details of the book which is due to come out in November covering the wartime careers of over 260 members of the club who were in the services during the war. At least 63 died as a result of that war - more than the accepted average. Watch the board for updates or contact Keith to obtain a copy of what is on the board.
