The Black Cats' "Biggest Ever Team Photo"

Black cats' fans were given the chance to sit alongside their sporting heroes today at the club's "Biggest Ever Team Photo".

Fans were invited to turn up at the ground in their Sunderland kit, and then fill the rows at the Stadium of Light to have their picture taken for free and join in some family fun.

There were also a host of activities taking place that were sponsored by the club's Foundation of Light.
