Training in Sunderland

Sunderland is a northern English port city. Locals in the city are sometimes referred to as Mackems. The name was coined in the early 1980s, but its use and acceptance among inhabitants, particularly older generations, is not ubiquitous. Ships constructed on the Wear were once known as “Jamies,” in contrast to those built on the Tyne, which were known as “Geordies,” however it is unknown whether this was ever extended to individuals.
