Michael Liddle is a young left back who joined Sunderland in July 2007. A product of the club's youth set-up, he experienced first-team football during an extended loan spell at Carlisle in the 2008-09 season. Michael made his debut for the Black Cats when he came off the bench in the FA Cup third round tie with Barrow at the beginning of 2010. Capped by the Republic of Ireland at U21 level, he featured for Sunderland's reserves during an injury-interrupted 2009-10 campaign, scoring once. Michael signed for Leyton Orient on loan at the beginning of 2010-11, making his debut against Yeovil in the opening game of the season, but was then sidelined by a groin injury and returned to Wearside to recuperate. In January 2011 he joined Gateshead in a further loan deal, remaining with the Conference club until the end of the season.
