Billy Dunlop undergoing treatment


August 27, 1941
Since the war that seasoned veteran, Billy Dunlop, has been looking after the training of the Colts, but he will not be seen at Roker Park for a while.

Unfortunately he developed a complaint and is away undergoing treatment, but I am sure his many friends will be pleased to know Billy is making satisfactory progress.

Billy Dunlop has been at Roker Park for over 30 years, and thus has a longer record of service than any other man ever connected with the Sunderland club – excluding directors, of course, Alderman Fred Taylor gets the longest service medal.
