Leeds United’s official Twitter account announced on Tuesday afternoon that the team’s Under-14 side had won the Flint Micasa Cup in Norway.
Indeed, the Whites triumphed courtesy of a 2-1 win over Viking in the final.
And the news led to a number of the club’s supporters taking to social media to lavish praise on the youth side.
There is no getting away from the fact that it was a hugely disappointing end to the 2018-19 campaign for the first team.
Indeed, defeat to Frank Lampard’s Derby County in the Championship playoff semi-finals saw their hopes of earning promotion to the Premier League come to an end.
The future certainly looks bright, though, with a number of players impressing for the club’s Under-23 side last term.
And now the Under-14s have shown their quality by triumphing in Norway.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Leeds fans can be seen below:
