Leeds United’s under-18s have been in action this week, taking part in a competition in Qatar with the Aspire Academy. Leeds developed a link with the talent identification academy in Doha in the summer and Leeds sent teams over for the under-17 and under-16 tournament as well.

But the under-18s were the Leeds side that caught the most attention and rightly so, as they won their tournament.

It was a good experience for the Leeds players, who won the competition by beating the Aspire Academy last night.

After the tournament was done, the Aspire Academy shared news of the awards won from the competition and the MVP for the under-18 competition was a Leeds United player.

The player in question is 17-year-old midfielder Bobby Kamwa. Born in Cameroon the teenager signed his scholarship contract at Leeds in 2016 and is therefore out of contract at the end of the current campaign. This performance and accolade will no doubt give him hope of a professional career at Leeds.

That and what has been an excellent season for him in the under-18s. He has been the talk of social media this season for Leeds, with highlights of his breathtaking goals catching the eye on Twitter.

At just 17, he has a tremendous physical make-up already and the technical skills to go alongside them.

His performances in Qatar will no doubt go some way to confirming his name amongst the contract renewals in the summer, and hopefully he can have a future in the Leeds United first-team.
