Young footballers were given plenty of handy tips when a member of Leeds United’s staff took one of their training sessions.

Neil Mortimer, Leeds United participation project officer, popped into a recent Glasshoughton Welfare U16s session, allowing the usual coaches to have a much needed night off.

He put the lads through their paces in a series of quickfire drills that focused on ball handling, possession and decision making before the youngsters then played a game.

Neil commented on how well the team listened and put into practice what he was asking of them. He wished them the best for the rest of the season.
