ROKER RAPPORT PODCAST: An Interview with SAFC Academy Graduate & Dundee Striker - Andrew Nelson!

A few weeks ago we managed to get to chat with Sunderland Academy product - Andrew Nelson, to see how he was settling in at Dundee following his January transfer, and how he was feeling overall about his move away to Scotland, as well as his experiences growing up in the Academy of Light. You can listen in, for free as usual, on iTunes, Acast, Spotify, and of course YouTube. Get stuck In!

What are we talking about?

  • At the time of recording, Andrew had hit the ground running at his new club Dundee; How are they treating him up there?
  • How does he feel about his move away, and would he have preferred to stay and do a job in League One?
  • What's it like to grow up in the Academy, and does he think he was given enough of an opportunity to prove himself at a higher level?
  • Andrew talks about his experiences with the coaching staff, senior players, and the lads he came up with;
  • Watching fellow youth players fall out of love with the game, and why he never will;
  • Ultimately, does he think this move was the best for his career, and would he consider coming back to Sunderland should the opportunity arise?

All this and much more. A very honest discussion with a great young talent. Listen in!
