LUFC Taylor-made for Mills

LUFC Taylor-made for Mills

Young Leeds United defender Charlie Taylor is earning high praise from York City boss Gary Mills during his loan spell with the Minstermen.

The 18-year-old defender joined the League Two side on a month`s loan at the end of August and he has played in all three of York`s games since his arrival.

Mills was especially impressed with the youngster`s performance at Rotherham United in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy last midweek, when York progressed to the next round with a 1-0 win.

Speaking about Taylor in the York Press, Mills said, "I`m happy with him and Leeds are pleased with the arrangement as well.

"We won`t get carried away after a couple of games and Charlie has got to continue playing at the same level but, at Rotherham, with his composure and positional play, he looked like somebody who had played a couple of hundred league games rather than an 18-year-old."


Leeds boss Neil Warnock has decided to send the young left back out on loan this season to gain some regular first team experience.

Taylor, who came through the Leeds academy, burst onto the scene last season when he made his debut as a substitute in the Carling Cup win over Bradford City.

He also appeared in the second round win at Doncaster Rovers before making a surprise full debut against Crystal Palace in the championship, eight days before his 18th birthday.

Taylor made an immediate impression in the 3-2 win over Palace with a pinpoint cross for Ross McCormack to open the scoring in the first ten minutes.

That was to be his last appearance for Simon Grayson and he spent a month on loan with League Two side Bradford City in January, where he made four appearances for the Bantams.

Taylor made just one appearance for Leeds following the arrival of new boss Neil Warnock in February when he started the home game against Peterborough United in April.

He did not enjoy a great afternoon though, and he was substituted at half time after struggling in the first half.

The left back will know that Warnock is willing to give youth a chance at Elland Road after seeing the emergence of Sam Byram and Dominic Poleon in the first team this season.
