Pen Pic

Irish-American businessman Ellis Short added Sunderland to his business portfolio in September 2008 when he purchased a 30% stake from the Drumaville consortium.

On May 27 2009, Short completed a deal to buy the club outright but kept Niall Quinn as chairman of the club until October 2011.

Short's acquisition of the club saw the end of Roy Keane's tenure as manager before overseeing the subsequent appointment of Ricky Sbragia who stepped down at the end of the season having narrowly survived relegation.
