A box-to-box midfielder who bases him game on Steven Gerrard and also admires Wayne Rooney, Sean made his under-18s bow last season while still at school.

The former John Spence Community School pupil lives in North Shields and played for North Shields Juniors. He joined Newcastle, his boyhood club, at the age of eight.

As well as football, Sean also enjoys cricket. The youngster still needs to work on his autograph, however.
