Emily has previously played for Chester-le-Street. She describes the Sports Development Centres as excellent, respectful and friendly.
“The open evenings that I attended here helped me make my decision to go to Sunderland College, as the opportunities that had been discussed really appealed to me. The facilities within the building are of an extremely high standard, which also influenced my decision.
The Sport Development Centre was very important to me and the reason I chose to come here. The best thing about the Sport Development Centre is the high quality of coaching through training and games. The sport facilities at Sunderland College are outstanding as they make us play better and improve our performance.”
Emily plans to progress to university and continue to study sport.
