'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.

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.
