The match against Derby County was special for Jamie Shackleton, as the youngster made his competitive debut for Leeds United.

Leeds made it back-to-back wins in the Championship on Saturday evening, as the Whites hammered Derby 4-1 away from home at the Pride Park Stadium.

Shackleton made his debut for Leeds against the Rams, as the 18-year-old came on as a substitute in the 73rd minute.

 

The youngster, who can operate as a midfielder or as a wing-back, played well during his time on the pitch.

The 18-year-old has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his delight at making his debut for Leeds.

It was a special moment for Shackleton, and as the following photo shows, he was clearly delighted to be making his competitive debut for Leeds.

Shackleton is a very talented and promising young player, and the 18-year-old has a bright future ahead of him, and one should not be surprised if head coach Marcelo Bielsa hands him more playing time as the season progresses.
