Leeds began life under new manager Thomas Christiansen with a 4-2 win over Harrogate Town in a pre-season friendly game at Thorp Arch yesterday.
On display were some formidable overall performances by the Peacocks, particularly by their young signings, who trumped their opponents with fabulous skills.

During a fiery counter-attack in the game, the 23-year old managed to scare Harrogate defenders by catching them off-guard with his sheer pace leading to a one-on-one with their goal-keeper.
