Sunderland Association Football Club Current Players

Andrew Cartwright

Andrew joined the Academy at under-15 level from the famous Wallsend Boys' Club.

His father Peter played 65 league games for Newcastle United and also represented Scunthorpe and Darlington.

Andrew started a two-year scholarship in summer 2011 and made 16 appearances in 2011-12, scoring once before making 13 appearances during the following season.

The defender shot to prominence during the first-team’s 2014-15 pre-season campaign, scoring two goals in a 3-0 win over Hartlepool United.

Now a regular in the club’s U21s, Cartwright has cemented his place as their first choice right back during the early stages of the 2014-15 season.
