From The KC

Description: Adam Clayton, Robert Snodgrass and Paul Connolly caught in the action here on the KC Stadium pitch. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Hull City at the KC Stadium on the 6th March, 2012. All three players featured played the full game for Leeds against the East Yorkshire outfit.

Manager Simon Grayson initially signed Adam Clayton from Manchester City on a months loan on the 6th August, 2010. He made his debut for Leeds coming on as substitute in the home game against Derby County just 24 hours after he had signed. Just over a month later on the 21st September, 2010 Clayton joined Leeds on a permanent basis. He made three more substitute appearances for Leeds in that season before he was loaned out to Peterborough and then the MK Dons for match experience. He impressed at his loan clubs and by now Clayton wanted to stake a claim to play in the first team at Elland Road for the 2011-12 season. Clayton's chance came after the departure of Midfielders Neil Kilkenny and Bradley Johnson in the Summer transfer window. He started in the first eleven for Leeds in the opening game of the season against Southampton at St Marys and since as made himself a permanent fixture in United's Midfield.

Gary McAllister beat a host of other clubs when he signed the highly rated Robert Snodgrass in late July, 2008 from Scottish outfit Livingston on a three year contract. After some excellent match winning performances 'Snoddy' soon established himself as one of Grayson's automatic choices for his first eleven and with two years left on his current contract he was offered a new four year deal with United at the beginning of the 2009-10 season. The Members Club Player of the Year for 2008-09 was delighted with the offer. "It`s been great since I came down here last summer and I really love the club. From the fans to the back-room staff and the other players..."

The United manager Simon Grayson signed Paul Connolly from Derby County on a three year contract on the 10th June, 2010. Connolly took over the number two shirt for the Whites displacing Jason Crowe who took the shirt number 20 spot. A delight Grayson said "Paul brings plenty of experience and know-how to the squad."

Leeds United: Lonergan, Connolly, Lees, O'Dea, Pugh, Brown, Clayton, Snodgrass, Webber, McCormack, Becchio.
Subs: Sam for Webber.
