One of the changes that occurred to LUTV this season was inclusion of being able to watch certain U23 and Leeds United Ladies matches this season free with a LUTV subscription.

It was nice to be able to watch some of the match (I didn’t catch all of it) and see the Leeds players of the future in action today. A lot of time, teams operate in the dark when it comes to their youth systems, but being able to watch them on the internet during an otherwise dull international break is a great change of pace from previous years when things like the Academy were seen as a burden rather than a opportunity.

Anyway, here’s hoping that everyone who tuned in was pleased to see the teams play, even if they did draw nil-nil with Colchester.
