STYLO MATCHMAKERS LEGEND: FOOTBALL BOOTS WORN BY SUNDERLAND AFC

SUNDERLAND – A LOOK THROUGH THE YEARS WEARING STYLO MATCHMAKERS

In the 1973 season, Sunderland AFC, led by their charismatic manager Bob Stokoe, had a dream run in the FA Cup. The team was determined to bring the trophy back to the city after a long wait of almost 50 years. They had a strong squad and a great team spirit, but what really set them apart was their choice of footwear.

Sunderland had a secret weapon, they wore the world-famous British Stylo Matchmakers football boots, the same boots worn by legends such as Pele, George Best, and Kevin Keegan. The boots were known for their superior quality, durability and comfort, and were considered the best in the market.

The players were initially skeptical about wearing the boots, but they decided to give them a try during their training sessions. To their surprise, the boots felt incredibly comfortable and provided great traction on the field. The team continued to wear the boots during their matches, and as the tournament progressed, they found that the boots seemed to give them an extra edge on the field. The winning goal was scored by Ian Porterfield in the 73rd minute. This was a historic victory for Sunderland as they were the first team in the 20th century to win the FA Cup while outside of the top tier of English football. The team was captained by Bobby Kerr, who played in the midfield. Other key players of this team were goalkeeper Jimmy Montgomery, defenders Gary Rowell, Dick Malone and Ian Porterfield, midfielders Bobby Kerr, Len Ashurst, and Billy Hughes, and forwards Vic Halom, Billy Bingham and Ian Porterfield.

In the final, Sunderland faced off against Leeds United, who also wore the Stylo Matchmakers boots. It was a closely contested match, but Sunderland emerged victorious with a 1-0 victory. After the final whistle, the Sunderland players lifted the trophy and celebrated their triumph. As they lifted the trophy, the cameras zoomed in on their feet, revealing the Stylo Matchmakers boots that they had worn throughout the tournament.

The 1973 FA Cup victory was a historic moment for Sunderland, and their fans, but it was also a turning point for the world-famous British brand Stylo Matchmakers. The brand’s association with the winning team helped them to establish themselves as a major player in the football boot industry. The players continued to wear the boots for many years, and the brand became synonymous with their success.
