‘Must start’, ‘Difference maker’ – These Sunderland fans heap praise on 26-y/o after dramatic draw

  ‘Must start’, ‘Difference maker’ – These Sunderland fans heap praise on 26-y/o after dramatic draw Sunderland made it four games unbeaten in League One thanks to a dramatic 2-2 draw at Crewe Alexandra. Whilst a point wasn’t a great result in isolation, the manner of the result will have pleased Lee Johnson, as his side battled back to draw, thanks to two superb goals from Jordan Jones and Chris Maguire.

Sunderland fans are delighted by the news that Luke O’Nien has been named the North East Football Writers’ Association’s Personality of the Year.

O’Nien has been a regular for the Black Cats in recent years. He has made 117 appearances for the club since joining in 2018, with 19 of those coming this campaign (Transfermarkt). Despite playing plenty at right-back, he has 11 goals and 13 assists for the Wearside outfit – far from a disappointing return.

It seems he is making waves off the field as well. The 26-year-old raised £7,000 for the NHS, and has also helped Sunderland supporters stay active during lockdown by delivering daily fitness sessions online. As such, the North-East FWA have decided he is worthy of this award.
