Championship

‘Feeling proud’ – Leeds United man’s comments have supporters feeling happy on Twitter

The Leeds fans in the Transfer Tavern were celebrating just their third win of 2018 and Paul Heckingbottom’s reign at the club when they beat Barnsley 2-1 at Elland Road on Saturday. The decisive goal came courtesy of young Tom Pearce, who claimed after the game that just playing for Leeds is an honour. You can read more of the youngster’s comments on the Leeds website.

The Leeds fans have had little to shout about since the turn of the year as their early promotion hopes turned to dust in the new year. The Yorkshire club have won just 13 points out of an available 42 since the appointment of Heckingbottom and the fans will be feeling pretty pessimistic as they head into their ninth straight season in the Championship next year.

Things could get brighter for the Whites though. The club have a fantastic academy and some youth players that have gone on to be successful in Premier League football. Even now, ex-Leeds man Lewis Cook is one of Bournemouth’s shining lights as they canter towards another season in the Premier League. If Heckingbottom can keep the club producing youngsters who turn in displays like young Pearce did on Saturday, then it’s just a matter of time until Elland Road is reinstated a Premier League ground.
