Loads of Leeds United fans have been reacting on social media, after the club shared a clip of youth talent Theo Hudson dazzling against Bolton Wanderers in the Professional Development League.

Carlos Corberan’s junior Whites side faced Bolton at Thorp Arch on Monday and were able stretch their unbeaten run to 11 league games with a resounding 4-1 win, to move up to second in the North Division standings.

Hudson was not responsible for any of our four efforts on Monday with Niall Huggins, Liam McCarron, Jordan Stevens and Bobby Kamwa finding the net, though the 19-year-old talent had a pivotal role in our fourth and final strike of the day.

The Knaresborough-born winger collected possession deep inside Bolton’s half of the field in the 52nd-minute, and shrugged off his marker by the corner flag with a clever turn before running onto the byline.

From the line, former England U16 international Hudson drilled the ball into the six-yard box for Kamwa to rifle home into the roof of the net to seal our victory.

Will Hudson make it to the first-team at Elland Road?

Yes

Yes

No

No

United are now within three points of North Division leaders Nottingham Forest and ahead of third-placed Burnley, though the Clarets have a game in hand after their clash with Birmingham City was postponed and would regain second with a win or draw over the Blues.

We could put some further distance between Burnley and ourselves next week, though, as Corberan’s side travel to the Clarets on Monday, February 17 striving to achieve our 12th win in 20 games this league season.

Hudson is under contract at Elland Road until the summer after the 5 ft 7 youngster penned a one-year deal last May.

Here are some of the messages shared as fans reacted to the club’s clip of Hudson’s skill on the wing to assist Kamwa against Bolton…

In other Leeds United news, a prominent Whites pundit has demanded more from a £2.7m-rated man leaving his teammates “fearful” after recent blunders.
