SAFSee catches up with a man who saw his first game in the 1930's.

George Forster is a true Sunderland stalwart, having watched his first game at Roker Park during the 1930's.

The 87-year-old, from Seaham Harbour, has been the chairman of the Supporters' Association for almost 50 years and recently received a Superfan award from Premier League sponsors Barclays.

George rates the club's FA Cup win in 1973 as his best day supporting the Lads and still runs the Association's shop, located not far from the Stadium of Light where he is still a regular.

SAFSee headed down to the shop to have a chat with a Sunderland legend - watch the full report above.

- The Supporters' Association are selling off a number of limited edition stamp covers celebrating the 1973 FA Cup final win.
