Sunderland Association Football Club Current Players
James is a striker who has been with Sunderland since the under-14 level.
He leads the line well and joined the club full-time in summer 2012 on a two-year scholarship.
After finding opportunities limited due to the form of Mikael Mandron, Stinson had to wait until 2013 to make his debut for the under-18 side.
Since making his debut, though, James has excelled scoring six goals in 13 games as the young Black Cats reached the semi-finals of the Barclays U18 Premier League at the end of the 2012-13 season.
