COMMENTARY

Jack Clarke tuned up for the Championship run-in with a 45-minute run-out for Leeds United Under-23s on Monday night as they secured the Professional Development League title on a memorable night. A double from Ryan Edmondson secured a 2-0 win at Colchester United and the league with two matches remaining. Clarke played a major role in the triumph by laying on the second of the striker’s goals. With just under 10 minutes remaining, the winger drifted past two players before putting the ball on a plate for Edmondson to tap home from close-range. The full-time whistle sparked jubilant scenes as United celebrated securing just the fifth development league title in the club’s history. Clarke has established himself in the first team during a memorable campaign for the 18-year-old but he has also played a key role in the Under-23s triumph, making such an impact at age-group level that Marcelo Bielsa felt he had no choice but to fast-track him into the senior side. The Monday clash provided a further chance for Clarke to get up to speed after his health scare last month and United fans loved what they saw.
