LUFC Welsh champions too strong for youngsters
A Leeds United development squad went down to a 3-1 defeat at Welsh champions TNS on Saturday.
The team, managed by Neil Redfearn was mainly made up from youngsters with just transfer-listed duo Paul Rachubka and Paul Connolly adding experience to the side.
The Welsh side played their first team, naming the same side that had been beaten by Swedish champions Helsingborgs in their champions League qualifier just days earlier.
Leeds had trailed 1-0 before 15-year-old Lewis Cook equalised for Leeds with just half hour remaining.
TNS scored twice in the final third of the game to run out winners against a side that finished with nine players 18 year old or younger.
Rachubka (Cairns 45), Connolly, Killock, Gimpel, Taylor, Dodds (Parkin 60), Snodin, Payne (Cook 46), Lenighan, Clamp (Dawson 75), Jackson (Walters 60)
