Joe plays for Durham County schools, Durham County FA and Lumley FC. He describes the Sport Development Centre as professional, competitive and enjoyable.
“I decided to study at Sunderland College as it gave me the chance to be part of a full-time football programme with South Shields FC, while getting a good education.
The link between Sunderland College and South Shields FC provides me with a platform to perform at the highest level while getting an education. The Sport Development Centre has very good facilities with the opportunity to access the Martin Nugent gym.”
