Having been promoted to a role on manager Marcelo Bielsa’s first team bench this summer, Leeds United’s former Under 23 guru Carlos Corberan is arguably playing a good part in the growing links that we are seeing between our senior and youth setups.

With a number of youngsters used during the pre-season warm-up campaign as Bielsa got his feet under the Elland Road desk, a clear pathway from our Under 23 level through into the senior side are clear for all to see. First-team debuts have been handed to both Jamie Shackleton and Jack Clarke so far in the early months of this campaign and Bielsa seems to operate with a very open ‘if you can do a job, you’ll get a chance’ attitude to promoting through.

The YEP’s Phil Hay had a good piece on their burgeoning relationship and the benefits that is already bringing us the other day.

The main takeaway is in seeing the levels operate on a joined-up basis and that kind of setup and joint philosophy can only help youngsters as they make the step up as they already have the basics of the job they are being asked to do. It makes for a good read, and fans were delighted with what they heard.
