Name: George Herd
DOB: 6 May 1936
Sunderland career: 1960-69
A versatile player in his own right, George Herd was a striker who could also adapt his game to play on either flank.
With 55 goals during his time at Sunderland, Herd narrowly missed out on promotion twice as the Lads finished third on both occasions, but persistence eventually paid off and they went up in the 1963/64 season.
