Jay-Roy Grot scored at Elland Road... for the U23s

Yes, it was against the Huddersfield Town U23s. But you know what, he still scored a great goal. There is a good player somewhere in there, believe it or not. Hopefully he gets some match fitness and some experience in the U23s, and returns to the first team as a player that can take on defences and score goals like he did there. He’s good with his feet and can move, here’s hoping he figures out the physical parts of the game and starts to use his height to his advantage. If he figures that out, he’ll be unstoppable.

On to the links.
