Sunderland Association Football Club Current Players

George Honeyman

George, who hails from Prudhoe in Northumberland, is very highly rated and has been with the Academy since he was ten years old.

An attacking player who can be deployed anywhere across midfield George broke into the under-18’s towards the end of the 2010-11 season, ending the campaign with a total of eight appearances.

He played 21 games at youth level in 2011-12, scoring once, and also made an impressive start to life in the development squad, appearing five times.

Honeyman continued his progress during the 2012-13 campaign as he scored six goals in 20 games for the under-18’s including a fine game as the young Black Cats narrowly lost out 4-3 to Fulham in the semi-finals of the Barclays U18 Premier League.

The midfielder made 17 appearances for the club’s U21s during the 2013-14 season.
