Layton has previously played for Hartlepool United Academy and currently plays for Lumley FC. He describes the Sport Development Centre as fun and quality.
“I chose to come to Sunderland College as I could do the course I wanted alongside playing football. The Sport Development Centre was very important in my decision to come here as the football coaching is very high quality. If I don’t make it far enough in football, I will still get a high level of education so I can study further to get a job that I want.
In my opinion, the best thing is the high level of technology with the video analysis and player analysis using Playertek, as I can look back on games to see where I am doing well and where I can improve.
I think the sports facilities are very good at Sunderland College from the grass pitches and 3G pitches to the indoor sports hall for futsal.
The Sports Development Centre will improve my football as the high quality coaching will take me to the next level, as well as that the video analysis, which will allow me to see what areas of the game I need to improve.”
Layton plans to become a footballer or study sport at university.
