Sunderland Association Football Club Current Players
Michael has been with Sunderland since he was eight years old and is highly thought of at the Academy of Light.
Hailing from Consett, Ledger featured 16 times for the under-18’s last campaign, despite still being a schoolboy, and he scored his first goal in a 2-0 win at West Ham United in April.
Predominantly a right-back, Ledger also filled in at centre-half as the U18's narrowly lost at Fulham in the semi-finals of the Barclays U18 Premier League last season.
He began a two-year scholarship in July 2013.
