Sunderlands 6th and most recent Division 1 Championship triumph was in the 1935-36 season. Another title is long overdue!! Sunderland were the last club to win the top flight wearing stripes!!
Sunderlands left back on 21 occasions that season was Bill Murray.
As player and manager, Bill Murray served the club for a total of 28 years. A stylish right back, Murray was signed from Cowdenbeath for £8,000 in 1927 and settled quickly in to the hugely successful Sunderland team of the inter-war years in which he made a total of 328 apperances.. A League Championship winner in 1936, Murray left the club the following season to return to Scotland. However, in 1939, Murray returned to the club to succeed Johnny Cochrane as manager.
This medal was the one awarded to Bill to celebrate the 1936 League Chamionship win and is engraved with his name on the reverse along with the season and club details.
A great piece of Sunderland history.
