Jack McKay scores his first goal for Leeds United's U21s

The January signing got on the score-sheet for the first time as a Leeds United player.

This month has seen some surprising transfers being conducted by Leeds United, and the double deal to bring twins Jack and Paul McKay to Elland Road was among them.

The 19-year-olds signed for Leeds from Doncaster Rovers and this week they had the chance to impress for the Whites’ under-21s against their Barnsley counterparts.

It is fair to say things did not go according to plan, as a Leeds side that also contained Jordan Botaka, Lee Erwin, Casper Sloth and Chris Dawson lost 4-1 to the Tykes’ second string.

However, there was one silver lining when Jack McKay scored his first goal in Leeds colours to briefly reduce the deficit to 3-1.

The striker was paired up front with summer signing Erwin and it will be interesting to see if they can develop an effective partnership over time.

McKay was replaced shortly afterwards by Frank Mulhern, who himself is developing a good reputation at this level. But while the result did not go their way, at least one of Leeds' recent signings did what he was brought in to do, even if his overall performance needs some work with Erwin’s work-rate showing him up at times.
