Report: Leeds United Under-23s 5-0 Bristol City Under-23s

City’s Under-23s suffered a 5-0 reverse at the hands of an experienced Leeds United at Elland Road.

The Robins, with an average age of 17-and-a-half, fought valiantly against an All White team containing new first team signings Jamal Blackman, Lewis Baker, Jack Harrison, Patrick Bamford.

Coming just three days after a 1-1 Professional Development League draw with Hull City, this fixture was always going to test Luke Williams’ side promoted from the younger ranks while players head out on loan for first team experience.   

Saikou Janneh, who departed injured after 11 minutes, and first year scholar Sam Pearson could have put City ahead with early chances and with their oldest player, 21-year-old Connor Lemonheigh-Evans leading the charge, the visitors stuck at the task.

But they found themselves 3-0 down at half-time after goals from Bamford, Callum Nicell and Jack Clark. Two more from Jordon Sevens and Robbie Gotts completed the victory.

City Under-23s are back in action at Millwall on Monday, September 17th (2.30pm).

City Under-23s: Buse, Williams, Ali, Smith (Owers 70), Webb, Harrison, Rees, Lemonheigh-Evans, Janneh (Bell 11), Pearson, Day (Taylor 70). Unused: Sainsbury.
