David currently plays for Jarrow Panthers U17s. He describes the Sports Development Centre as quality, helpful and devoted.

He said:

“I wanted to carry on playing football after I left school and the fact that the Football Development Centre runs alongside the course was what made me want to come to Sunderland College.

The best thing about the Sport Development Centre is the standard of coaching and match analysis. The standard of coaching is very high and the analysis helps me to see my mistakes so I know where to improve. The sports facilities at the college are also of a high standard. The free access to the 3G pitches is good.”

David plans to work in the sports industry.
