Former Sunderland manager Bob Stokoe has died at the age of 73.
Stokoe led his team to a famous win over Leeds in 1973
Stokoe, who had been suffering from dementia, was admitted to the University Hospital of Hartlepool on Tuesday and died on Sunday morning.
Stokoe led the club to their famous 1973 FA Cup final victory over Leeds, when the north-east club were massive underdogs against Don Revie's side.
The victory was the first time a second division team had secured the Cup for 40 years.
After the famous FA Cup win, Stokoe took Sunderland into the top flight in 1976 but resigned the following season, citing ill health.
He returned briefly as caretaker manager in 1987 after
Lawrie McMenemy was sacked, but Sunderland were relegated to the Third Division for the first time in their history.
