Leeds United continued their preparations for the 2018-19 campaign with a 1-1 draw against York City on Thursday night.
The Whites are building towards their Championship opener against Stoke City on August 5, and will also take on Southend United, Oxford United, Guiseley and Las Palmas in pre-season friendlies before the end of the month.
Leeds’ goal against York was scored by 18-year-old Sam Dalby, who moved to Elland Road from Leyton Orient in the January transfer window.
The forward impressed for Leeds’ Under-23 team in the second half of last season, and has now got his name on the scoresheet for the senior side.
Standing at 6ft 3in, Dalby is an imposing figure, and his goal arrived courtesy of a smart finish from close range.
The Leeds fans are a frustrated bunch at the moment due to their club’s inactivity in the transfer market.
However, a number are pretty excited about what Dalby could achieve at Elland Road.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Leeds supporters can be seen below:
Forget Mbappe, Sam Dalby is the best youngster in the world
