Niall Huggins, Leeds' number 3, looking very decent.

Watching on the stream and noticed that the U23 kit doesn't have any front of shirt sponsorship. Has this always been the case?

Yes, you can't have gambling sponsors on kit worn by U18s so they must remove it for the U23s in the very likely scenario we play U18 players

Good move for him, think if he gets a run of games he could be a big player at that level. Shame Watson and East didn't get loans though

Well I'm now officially completely out of touch with the U18s. Only recognise two of those names.

And one of the two I didn't know six weeks ago

Valid question then, how do the club get round that?
