A Sunderland youth worker has written a football anthem dedicated to the city’s football club.
Dave Murray, known as the Mackem Folk Singer, regularly writes songs inspired by his passion for the team.
His latest song, Forever My Sunderland, is about his commitment to the club and its players.
Describing himself as a ‘bedroom busker’, Dave often records himself singing songs in a Sunderland accent and wearing the team’s strip.
His videos have had thousands of hits on Youtube since he joined the site in May 2011.
His most popular video is a song called O'Neill’s a Mackem Now, which has been viewed over 5,000 times.
Dave also writes songs about the city, including ‘Me First Pint In The Pallion Inn’ and ‘Fishing the Hendon’.
Inspired by Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan, Dave wants to build up a collection of folk songs to reflect modern life in Sunderland.
