Leeds United fans proud of Under-18s following Youth Cup exit

Leeds United are performing much more positively in the Championship following a run of seven defeats in nine matches.

At the weekend, the Whites secured a 2-0 victory over Barnsley on away soil, which moved them to eighth in the table, three points adrift of the playoff places.

While the senior team may be celebrating, the Under-18s have suffered disappointment by getting knocked out of the FA Youth Cup.

The youngsters faced Burnley away and were undone with just six minutes of normal time remaining when Jordan Cropper scored the only goal of the game to send the Clarets through.

Jack Clarke, who is one of Leeds’ promising youngsters, took to Twitter to post his reaction to the contest.

The reaction to his message was one of positivity, with many praising the effort of the young guns.

Some fans also tipped the teenager to make his way into the first team in due course.
