Sunderland Association Football Club Current Players

Steven McCarthy

Steven moved over from Ireland at the start of the 2012-13 campaign alongside teammate Peter Burke.

The striker hails from Skibbereen and impressed while playing for his home-town club of the same name.

He was spotted by Sunderland scouts and handed a two-year apprenticeship which began in summer 2012.

Steven can play up front but he featured predominantly as a winger in his 13 appearances last season.

He scored his first goal for the under-18’s in a 2-0 victory at Stoke in April 2013.
