They came, they saw, they chucked themselves down the Shevington End embankment

Wigan Athletic v Sunderland – Saturday March 12th 1988 and the afternoon of the legendary Sunderland mudsliders.

These guys were off their heads and rumour has it that at least one of them wasn’t allowed back on the coach for the trip home – such was the state of their clothes.

The game finished 2-2 but that seemed irrelevant after watching these head the balls launch themselves down the muddy bank that was the Shevington End at Springfield Park.
