Sunderland U18s 5 Wolves U18s 3: Stinson the hat-trick hero

Have your say

James Stinson enjoyed a day to remember in inspiring Sunderland U18s to a thrilling 5-3 win over Wolves at the Academy of Light today.

Stinson bagged a well-taken hat-trick, a feat matched by Wolves striker David Moli, as the sides were level at 3-3 midway through the second half.

But Stinson then set up Ross Holland and sub George Honeyman to complete a fine victory for Craig Liddle’s lads.
