THE time of the first North-East Premier League derby of the season has been brought forward.

Sunderland’s home game with Newcastle United will now take place at 1.30pm on Sunday, October 27, instead of 4pm.

Concerns were voiced that the later kick-off time would increase the potential for alcohol-related disorder.

The match will still be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
