Sunderland qualified for the Championship play-offs following a sixth-placed finish this season. They fell narrowly short of a place in the final at Wembley after being beaten 3-2 on aggregate by Luton Town.
The last time Shields took on a Black Cats first-team in pre-season was in 2019, when Jack Ross’ Sunderland earned a 2-0 victory in front of a crowd of 3,261 at 1st Cloud Arena.
