Sunderland youngster Andrew Cartwright is delighted with his progress this season.
The midfielder has fully recovered from a serious knee injury to impress for the U18s this term.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs probably been my best year of football, although I still think I can play better,‚ÄĚ he told safc.com.
‚ÄúI‚Äôve been more consistent this year. Last season I would play really well in one game and then have a nightmare the next.
‚ÄúThis year I‚Äôve been more consistent and I‚Äôm probably getting back to near where I should be.‚ÄĚ
