Alf Common, the first player to be transferred for £1,000, when he was bought by Middlesbrough from Sunderland in 1905

Sunderland Association Football Club was founded in 1879, and turned professional in 1886. This list contains all players that have played 100 or more first-class matches for the club. However, some players who have played fewer matches are also included. This includes players who have set a club playing record, such as goalscoring or transfer fee records.[1]

Jimmy Montgomery holds the record for Sunderland appearances, having played 627 matches between 1960 and 1977,[2] followed by Len Ashurst who made 459 appearances.[3] As of 21 March 2009, the player who has won most international caps while at the club is Charlie Hurley with 36 for Republic of Ireland.[A] Alf Common became the first transfer to reach £1,000 after moving to Middlesbrough from Sunderland in 1905.[B]

The goalscoring record is held by Bobby Gurney, with 227 goals in all competitions, in 390 appearances, scored between 1925 and 1950.[C] Charlie Buchan is the next highest goalscorer, closely behind Gurney with 221 goals, in 411 games, from 1911 to 1925.[4] Dave Halliday holds the record for the most goals scored in a season, set in 1928–29, with 43 league goals in 42 games in the First Division.[D] Halliday also holds a high goalscoring ratio while at Sunderland, scoring 175 goals in 164 games, with a goal every 0.94 games. Defender Charlie Hurley was voted as Sunderland's "Player of the Century" in the club's centenary season in 1979.[E]

As of the end of the 2010–11 season, 188 players have reached the milestone of 100 senior appearances for the club; this figure includes one current player, Phil Bardsley.
