Billy Sharp reacts on Twitter after scoring on Sheffield United debut

Leeds United East Stand

The former Leeds striker netted during his first friendly appearance after rejoining the Blades.

Billy Sharp's start to life at Sheffield United (again) has been a good one after the man who recently left Leeds United played 65 minutes for the Blades during a pre-season friendly on Wednesday night, also netting on his debut.

This wasn't the first time Sharp had ever played for Sheffield United, of course, having enjoyed spells at Bramall Lane in the past. But this was the 29-year-old's debut after rejoining United earlier this month, having left Leeds after a disappointing season at Elland Road.

Sharp didn't quite fit into the Yorkshire side's first-team plans under a succession of managers, before his sale was approved under new boss Uwe Rosler.

The forward, however, is looking forward to a fresh start at Sheffield United in League One and very much has the backing of a manager who has worked with him before in Nigel Adkins. And his career since leaving Leeds got off to a promising start when he scored on Wednesday night.

Sharp no doubt has a long way still to go in terms of both form and fitness but simply finding the back of the net in any capacity will no doubt provide a huge confidence boost for the striker.
