Leeds United's under-21 side had a successful afternoon on Saturday as they beat non-league Bridlington Town.

Bridlington Today report that Leeds had as many as six trialists on show during the fixture, whose identity remain under wraps.

Tom Pearce (2) and Lewis Knight were among the scorers - but three goals were scored by the unnamed trialists.

A photo of one of the mystery scorers can be seen here - although given the angle of the shot it is hard to gain real clues as to his identity.

Leeds have done well at keeping their signings off the grid this summer before announcing them, and this seems to be applicable right down to academy level.

One clue as to their identities could lie in recent comments made by Massimo Cellino, made just this weekend.

He told buzz.ie: “I would love to have more British players. Sometimes I cannot afford them.

“But what I am doing is giving a chance to young British players to come to our academy and play for Leeds.”

Leeds under-21 coach Jason Blunt will now have an interesting report to file on the 6-3 win at the weekend, which Cellino did not see first hand as he was in Ireland with the first team.

It could well be that the performance by the mystery men in the Leeds side at the weekend did well enough to earn them a contract, or at least another look.
