THE controversial reign of former Sunderland football manager Paolo Di Canio will come under the spotlight in the revival of a play by a South Tyneside writer.

I Left My Heart in Roker Park (Extra Time at the Stadium of Light) will be performed at several regional venues later this year.

Written by Jarrow-born playwright and lifelong Sunderland AFC supporter Tom Kelly, the play is centred on the pain, heartache and occasional joy of Black Cats’ fan Kevin Halliday.
