2016/17:
The Black Cats had been flirting with relegation for a few years and came up short this term under David Moyes, finishing bottom of the table. They had previously performed great escapes to keep them in the division but will now have to re-build as they look to make a quick return to England’s most prestigious league. 

One to watch:
Duncan Watmore – The forward sat out much of this campaign after he ruptured his cruciate ligaments and will be eagerly anticipating getting back on the pitch. Watmore has shown himself to be a fast and tricky forward who will no doubt trouble many defences in this division once he returns to full fitness.
