Luke Molyneux

Date of birth
2018 Kit

Durham-born, Luke was brought up around Bishop Auckland and joined Sunderland at under-16 level.

A pacey winger, Luke excelled into the under-18s during the 2014-15 season where he scored six goals including an extra-time winner in the FA Youth Cup against Ipswich Town.

Luke continued to develop his game last term and is now a tricky right winger – who can also operate up front – with an explosive shot from range as demonstrated at Manchester United in January.

Having been given a glimpse of life in the under-21s team last season on the odd occasion, Luke has now graduated to the development team on a permanent basis.

He made his first-team debut on the final day of the 2017-18 season, coming off the bench against Wolves.
