Some Leeds United fans are raving about Charlie Cresswell after the teenage Whites defender starred against Hull City Under-18s on Thursday.

Cresswell, whose father is the former Leeds striker, Richard, captained the young Whites side to victory in the FA Youth Cup third round.

 

Despite having started the game in his usual position of centre-half, he still scored twice in a 3-1 win.

And this is what the Leeds faithful had to say about it afterwards...

Leeds went a goal down inside the first minute at Elland Road, but goals from Josh Shergill and Cresswell turned the game on its head by half time.

Cresswell then made sure of the points from the penalty spot with 20 minutes remaining.

His father spent around a year working as the head of Leeds' academy, but left earlier this year and has since been replaced by Andy Foster.

Foster had spent the past two-and-a-half-years doing the same job for Middlesbrough.

His arrival there coincided with Victor Orta's exit as Middlesbrough's director of football, with the Spaniard joining Leeds shortly afterwards.

Before Boro, Foster worked for the Football Association as a national coach developer.
