‘Failure has now permeated throughout the club’ – Leeds fans react to U23 team’s semi-final loss

Newcastle U23 won 3-0 in the semi-final.

Leeds United crashed out of the Premier League Cup in the semi-final last night as Newcastle United’s U23 side recorded a 3-0 win.

Second-half goals from Kelland Watts, Cal Roberts and Elias Sorensen sealed the victory for Newcastle in front of a big crowd at Guiseley.

Leeds fielded a strong U23 side with several first-team players featuring for the youngsters in this clash.
