Kitching has yet to make an appearance for Leeds but did make the bench in the recent 2-1 defeat to Newport County in the FA Cup.
Football Insider verdict:
The highlight of Kitching’s Leeds career so far was making the bench for the Newport County game, although it turned out to be a miserable experience as the youngster sat and watched his side humiliated by the lower league club. However, after the game he tweeted, “Disappointing result, however, I am incredibly honoured and proud to be part of the team and on the bench today- what an experience.” Now he’s going to have to get his career back on track at the National North side Harrogate. It’s a step down from playing for Leeds in the FA Cup but the experience will be good for him.
