On This Day

January 4th
1982
A fitting farewell
It was perhaps appropriate that the final appearance of Bobby Kerr's professional career should come in the FA Cup. Kerr would always be remembered for captaining second division Sunderland to a memorable win in the competition. His swansong was more humdrum, with Hull completing a routine victory over Pools at Boothferry Park
