'Could teach Rodrigo a thing or two': Some Leeds fans wowed by footage of Thorp Arch teenager
A number of Leeds United fans have waxed lyrical about Joe Snowdon following his effort for the Under-23s on Friday night.
The 17-year-old scored for the Whites in their Premier League 2 meeting with Brighton, which finished 1-1.
Leeds U23s went into the game hoping to put an end to a run of four winless matches in all competitions and to finally get their first PL2 home win of the campaign.
Although Mark Jackson’s charges were marginally better than the visitors in the first half, it was still a cagey affair that remained goalless at the break.
Snowdon came on at half-time alongside Archie Gray, and the former broke the deadlock with a fierce low effort from outside the box.
Sadly, Leeds couldn’t hang on to their lead, with Brighton getting themselves a late equaliser through Lorent Tolaj.
Nonetheless, Snowdon earned plaudits from Leeds fans, who were able to see his goal on the club’s Twitter account:

Snowdon joined Leeds from Manchester City’s setup last year and signed his first professional contract at Elland Road this summer.
The midfielder put pen to paper on a two-year-deal, running until the summer of 2023.
Snowdon featured regularly for the Under-18s last term, scoring five goals in 16 appearances.
This season, he has made seven appearances – four in the U18 Premier League, two in the U23 Premier League 2, and one in the Papa John’s Trophy.
