Sam has played at professional football level for Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday football clubs, and has been involved in overseas competitions such as the Milk Cup. He describes the Sports Development Centre as professional, passionate and beneficial.
“I decided to study at Sunderland College as the coaches and lecturers were really friendly. The Sport Development Centre was a big factor in my decision to apply to Sunderland College but the College was appealing enough on its own.
The best thing about the Sport Development Centre is the staff, and their influence and support. The Sports Development Centre will help me develop by continuing to improve my sport whilst getting all my academic needs alongside.
The sports facilities are top quality and up there with all the professional clubs I have played for.”
Sam plans to keep his options open and would like to be involved in coaching, football, fitness or anything sport related.
