Guiseley AFC vs Leeds United

Thursday 11th July 2019, 7:45pm | Nethermoor Park


Leeds United started their pre-season in style on Wednesday night with a five nil victory over York City at Bootham Crescent. Jack Harrison scored twice with Kemar Roofe, Pablo Hernandez and Adam Forshaw all bagging one each before ten second half substitutions saw some of the promising young talent from the U23s starred in the second half. Alfie McCalmont had already impressed in the first half deputising for Kalvin Phillips in the defensive midfield role before Pascal Struijk, Liam McCarron, Clarke Oduor and Oliver Casey in particular proved why there is so much buzz around the U23 side.

It’s hard to judge any team this early on in pre-season, especially against a team plying their trade outside of the Football League but Leeds looked sharp. Passing was quick, accurate and they took their chances well. I’ve seen Leeds sides falter in pre-season at Bootham Crescent in the past. The most impressive part of the game though must be the performances from the U23 lads. Sure, they didn’t score but they dominated possession and created chances, they were unlucky not to convert a couple of them. The future is most definitely bright and with the likes of Casey, Struijk and Hosannah coming through it’s easy to see why Halme and Diaz were let go by the club.

Tonight Leeds play their second friendly match of pre-season, and last before they step on the plane for their pre-season tour of Australia, against National League North side in Guiseley AFC at Nethermoor.

Always fun trying to work out who's playing where, who's starting as the striker in that team? Clarke ?

Nice FK from Kalvin finds White who heads just wide

Good save from BPF at the feet of oncoming striker.

Dont understand why MB is so against inverted wingers.

Costa much prefers playing on the right.

Already seeing how a big number 9 will cause us issues.

Are you suggesting we have a lack of stength in depth at centre back?
