Been a rock all season: Leeds fans lavish praise on Alfie McCalmont

Leeds United’s Under-23 side were crowned Professional Development League champions for the 2018-19 campaign courtesy of a penalty-shootout win over their Birmingham City counterparts at Elland Road on Monday night.

It has been a fine campaign for the club’s Under-23 side, which is full of talent.

One of those to impress this season has been Alfie McCalmont.

A number of Leeds fans drew attention to the Northern Irishman back in February, suggesting that he could be a future first-team star.

McCalmont took to social media in the aftermath of Monday night’s win and more Whites supporters have been lavishing praise on the 19-year-old.

It remains to be seen what happens with the midfielder this summer as a lot will probably depend on whether the first team can secure promotion to the Premier League.

However, it would be fair to say that a number of the club’s fans are excited by the potential of McCalmont, who has a contract at Elland Road until June 2021.
