Pete Sixsmith had some moving words to say about Davey Dowell, a faithful supporter of Sunderland AFC though Pete would also see him at Durham Country Cricket Club games, who is presumed to have died after disappearing on June 21.

From Tom Lynn, another great SAFC fan, the sort you meet home or away, comes this message:

A celebration of the life of the late, loyal SAFC supporter Davey Dowell, who was even more importantly a wonderful human being, will take place starting at the Black Cats Bar, Stadium of Light at 1pm on Saturday July 16th, 2016.

All those who knew this fanatical and friendly follower of our football club are invited to attend to show their love and respects.

Davey was a real character and will be very much missed by all who knew him. The venue for this celebration could not be more fitting.
