Sunderland fullback Alonso thrilled with derby triumph

Sunderland fullback Marcos Alonso was delighted with their derby win at Newcastle United.

Sunderland completed the double over their local rivals for the first time since 1967 and the left-back cut an animated figure after the final whistle.

"I'm very happy with the result," the 23 year-old told safc.com.

"My first taste of the north east derby couldn't be any better, it was a great game. I felt I did well and the whole team really performed."
