“I decided to study at Sunderland College because of the link with South Shields Football Club Academy. The College’s Sport Development Centre was the only reason I applied to Sunderland College as I was already playing football for South Shields FC. The sports facilities are great at Sunderland College.
The best thing about the Sport Development Centre is playing football on a daily basis. The coaches are a great help in advancing and improving my footballing ability due to their training methods. Also Martin Nugent will help me to improve my strength side of things and make me a better overall athlete.”
Bailey plans to keep playing for South Shields FC.
