Warm Up For The Whites

Warm Up For The Whites

Submitted: 10/08/11
Description: Andrew Keogh, Ross McCormack and Jonathan Howson lead the pack here in this warm up run on the Elland Road pitch. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Portsmouth at Elland Road on the 1st October, 2011. All three started the game for Leeds while Keogh was replaced on 68 minutes by Luciano Becchio and McCormack was replaced on 78 minutes by Mikael Forssell.

Andrew Keogh initially moved to Leeds at the age of sixteen. The player found it hard to break through into the first team and was loaned out to Scunthorpe United where he made 12 appearances and scored two goals for the Lincolnshire side. Manager Blackwell recalled Keogh due to an injury crisis when he made his debut for the Whites coming on as substitute in a 3rd Round League Cup tie against Portsmouth on the 26th October, 2004. For the rest of the season he showed only for the reserves before he was loaned out again to Bury. It was Manager Simon Grayson who gave the player his second spell at Leeds when on the 15th August, 2011 he was signed on loan with a view to a permanent move. After the move Keogh commented he had 'unfinished business' with The Whites and started his second spell in the Championship game against Hull City on the 16th August, 2011.

Manager Simon Grayson signed Scotland International Ross McCormack from Cardiff City on the 27th August, 2010 for an undisclosed fee. Ross made his debut for the Whites just a day later coming on as substitute in the 70th minute in the 1-0 away win at Watford. United's manager Grayson was delight with the capture of Ross saying: "Ross is a player of good quality.... He's proved in the Championship he can score goals and hopefully he will continue that with us."

Loiner and United fan Jonathan Howson came through the Academy at Leeds United and made his senior debut for the club on the 19th September, 2006 in the second round of the Football League Cup which United won 3-1. Later in the same season of 2006-07 Howson was given his league debut by manager Wise which came on the 23rd December, 2006 in the 0-0 draw with Hull City at Elland Road. By the season 2007-08 Howson had established himself as the natural choice for his position winning the Young Player of the Year award and earning a new three year contract with the Whites in the bargain. Manager Simon Grayson handed the role of captain to Howson at the start of season 2009-10 due to the absence of injured fellow Loiner Richard Naylor.

Leeds United: Lonergan, Connolly, Lees, O'Dea, White, Snodgrass, Howson, Clayton, Pugh, Keogh, McCormack.
Subs: Becchio for Keogh, Forssell for McCormack, Vayrynen for Snodgrass.
