Sunderland legend Dave Watson has been inundated with letters from fans amid his battle with dementia… the flood of support shows he is the REMEMBERED England captain
Hundreds of Sunderland supporters have written letters to Dave Watson, the club legend and 65-time capped England defender who is battling dementia.
Following Sportsmail’s interview with Dave’s wife Penny, who described her husband as the ‘forgotten England captain’, fans decided to show how much he meant to them.
Micky Horswill — Dave’s team-mate who also won the 1973 FA Cup — is kindly ensuring the letters reach the Watsons, who are overwhelmed by the response.
