Watts New At Sunderland Academy
Louis joined us in October 2013 and last season played in a major part in our all conquering U12 Reds squad who swept all before them, winning all 7 competitions in which they were entered.
U13s manager, Graeme Coulson, was full of praise for Louis. “Its one of those bittersweet moments that you get as a boys club coach, sad that we are losing such a good player as Louis, but also delighted for him at the opportunity that he has been given. He has that rare ability to produce a bit of magic that can turn a game and I am sure he will do well at Sunderland. I know that he was close to being offered the chance to join them last season but they felt he was not quite ready then. Its to his credit that he put that initial disappointment behind him, kept on trying to improve and has shown to every other lad at the club what rewards such efforts can bring. We wish him and his family well!”
