Leeds youngster Alex Purver scored a spectacular long range strike for loan club Guiseley on Tuesday evening during his side’s 6-1 victory against York.

The 20-year-old midfielder starred as his side, who are currently bottom of the league convincingly beat York in a relegation battle at home.

Purver picked up the ball just outside of the area and managed to strike the ball first time, leaving the opposition goalkeeper without a chance of saving it.

Purver signed a new one-year deal in June and is currently with Guiseley until January.

The youngster is highly rated at the Yorkshire giants after joining the club at six and progressing through the youth ranks at Thorp Arch.

He starred in 33 encounters for the Under-21 side last campaign, where he was often the captain of the side.

The young midfielder also trained with the first-team squad during this summer’s pre-season.

He can occupy a number of positions to go alongside his more natural midfield role and last campaign he also enjoyed a stint at right-back for the Under-21 side.

However, when he does return to Garry Monk’s side in January he may find first team opportunities hard to come by with Matt Grimes, Kalvin Phillips, Pablo Hernandez, Ronaldo Vieira, Liam Bridcutt, Eunan O’Kane and Alex Mowatt all ahead of him in the club’s midfield pecking order.
