Sunderland Association Football Club Current Players
Tom is an old-school defender who began a two-year scholarship with the club in summer 2012.
He joined the Academy at the age of 8 and had a spell in Australia before returning to the UK.
He continued his footballing education at the Academy before being offered a youth contract with the club.
Tom made nine appearances for the under-18’s in 2012-13 as injures limited his opportunities in the early stages of the campaign.
After breaking into the development squad in the final game of their campaign – a 2-2 draw against Fulham at Craven Cottage – Tom has become a regular fixture in the U21s.
