Video: Leeds United teenager Tom Pearce scores stunning free-kick

Leeds United prospect Tom Pearce continues to impress.

Talented Leeds United youngster Tom Pearce can't stop scoring.

The teenager uploaded a video to a social networking site, of an impressive free kick he scored against QPR's under-18 side at the weekend.

It was one of two strikes he scored in the game, a stunning 9-2 victory, which saw teammate Mallik Wilks score four goals.

Pearce is a player in form, having scored a brace earlier in the season for the under-18s, and also being called up to the under-21 side, and scoring a penalty.

He surely has a long way to go before he gets a first team chance, but his eye for goal is an illustration of his progression in recent months.

His free-kick was ruthless, and if it becomes an ability which he can regularly repeat, this alone could start help him catch head coach Uwe Rosler's attention to earn an opportunity when the time comes.
