Leeds United trialist made an impression once again.

Leeds United started four trialists for their under-21 side against Tadcaster Albion last night, and one made a big impression.

The scoring was opened by one of the four unnamed players, who is bidding to earn a contract with the Whites.

He opened the scoring with a strike from around 25 yards out which gave his side the lead heading into half-time.

Leeds had started six trialists in the win over Bridlington Town at the weekend, with one of them scoring twice.

It is unclear whether the players are bidding to win a place in the first team squad or simply with the under-21s, but the fact head coach Garry Monk was in attendance at Tadcaster should certainly count in their favour.

First team players Charlie Taylor and Ronaldo Vieira were also spotted in the crowd, with more than 1,300 fans watching on.
