Sunderland Association Football Club Current Players

Carl Lawson


A striker who can also play out wide, Carl joined the Academy at under-13 level.

He is an intelligent link-up player who lives in High Barnes, Sunderland.

Carl scored on his debut for the under-18s during his only appearance at that level in 2010-11.

He joined the club full-time in summer 2011 and made 12 appearances in his first full season, scoring three goals.

Carl began the 2013-14 season with the club’s U21 side, making a number of appearances in his first season with the development side.

The forward continued to feature heavily for the development side during the 2014-15 season and he found the net against Fulham and Everton, before a knee injury saw him ruled out until the early stages of the 2015-16 campaign.
