Kilkenny And Fan

Description: Neil Kilkenny the United midfielder poses for the camera here with a Leeds United fan at the League One game with Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park on August 15th, 2009. Brummie Kilkenny played the full ninety minutes in the game with the Buckinghamshire outfit.

Neil Kilkenny was signed by Dennis Wise on the 4th January, 2008. Coming to Leeds United initially on an emergency loan to ensure his inclusion in the squad the following day. He made his debut for the Whites three days before he signed his contract and picked up the Man of the Match award to boot in that game against Northampton Town. By mid season 2008-09 after a run of impressive displays Kilkenny established himself as Grayson's number one choice for his favoured central midfield role. English born Kilkenny is an Australian International, he grew up in Brisbane, Australia after his family moved there when he was just a kid.

United were playing freshly promoted Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park. Jermaine Beckford made a welcome return after a knee injury and Andrew Hughes started in place of the injured Ben Parker. This would be United's first ever professional clash against Wycombe and it was Leeds who came close to scoring first with an effort from Jermaine Beckford in the first quarter but the strike went inches wide. Leeds were the dominant side throughout the first 45mins but the two sides went in all square at half time. United again started the second half looking the most threatening and it wasn't long before Leeds broke the deadlock, on the 61st minute Luciano Becchio struck a first time effort from outside the box which left the Wycombe goalkeeper with no chance and sent the United faithful behind the goal into raptures. Leeds looked comfortable for the rest of the game and coasted the lead to the 90th minute mark making it 3 points for Grayson's men and the third straight win of the season for United. 8,400 were at Adams Park for the match with the United following packing two sides of the ground.

Leeds United: Higgs, Crowe, Marques, Kisnorbo, Hughes, Snodgrass, Howson, Doyle, Johnson, Beckford, Becchio.
Subs: Prutton for Snodgrass, Showunmi for Becchio.
