Having set up the ‘Marvin Sordell Foundation’, his aim is to help raise the profile and monies of various different charity initiatives through events, media and fundraising activities and the website will be the focal point for this activities.
Marvin had three seasons with WFC, scoring his first competitive goal in the 2009/10 Carling Cup campaign away to Leeds United, taking the game into extra time. Watford went on to lose the game in a 2-0 score line. He was named September’s Young Player of the Month for the npower Football League. During his time as a scholar, Marvin was a regular goal scorer for the Under 18 side, with one of his highlights scoring ‘the ultimate hat-trick’ in the FA Youth Cup against Ipswich Town. Marvin was also a regular for the reserve team, gaining valuable experience playing alongside some older professionals in the process.
Marvin continued his goal scoring form during the 2011/12 season and as a result was rewarded the international honour of a call-up to Stuart Pearce’s England Under 21 side – again scoring on this debut. With his reputation continuing to grow as a potent goal scorer, he left the club – having scored a total of 27 competitive goals in 73 appearances – on deadline day of 2012’s January Transfer Window; to Premier League side Bolton Wanders Football Club.
On the 21st of April 2014, he scored his first professional hat-trick whilst on loan to Charlton Football Club.
Marvin is currently plying his trade at newly promoted Burnley Football Club under his former manager, Sean Dyche.
