Bailey Peacock-Farrell tweets after making his Leeds United debut

Goalkeeping Gloves

The teenager made his debut this week against QPR.

Leeds United took on QPR yesterday evening and once again a late penalty cost them points in the fixture.

Giuseppe Bellusci’s silly foul gave Tjarron Chery the opportunity to score from 12 yards, which he did with aplomb.

They lost to Rotherham United at the weekend after a Bellusci mistake stitched up his goalkeeper Marco Silvestri – with the Italian sent off.

But Silvestri being suspended handed a chance to Leeds United youngster Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

With Ross Turnbull still out with a broken ankle the 19-year-old got into the first-team for the first time, making his professional debut.

Now the Darlington-born stopper has been tweeting about his debut. He sent this message to his followers after a good performance, even if he did not get the win and clean sheet he would have wanted:

The teenager has clearly impressed with the under-21s and it is now looking like he might be a future star of the Leeds United first-team.

Whether or not he will keep his place in the Leeds first-team when Silvestri’s suspension is over remains to be seen. But hopefully he can be a big hit for Leeds’ future.
