Wearside Pneumatics helped Sunderland AFC retain their Premier League status by sponsoring the Black Cats’ home match against Everton in which survival was secured.
In keeping with Wearside Pneumatics’ status at the Premier Distributor for Atlas Copco in the North-East, our guests at the Stadium of Light included representatives from the world’s leading manufacturer of air compressors, as well as a number of our customers.
In front of a sell-out crowd, Sunderland produced a superb performance to win the match. A Patrick van Aanholt free kick gave the home side a first-half lead before two second-half goals from defender Lamine Kone secured both the three points and another season in the Premier League.
General Manager of Wearside Pneumatics, Dean Horn, described the match as “a fantastic evening”, while Director Julie Prescott added “as the North-East’s Premier Distributor of Atlas Copco products, we are delighted to work in partnership with the North-East’s premier football club. We congratulate Sunderland AFC on survival on what was a brilliant evening for the whole of Wearside.”
