Somma's Time

Sommas Time

Description: Davide Somma here United's South African Striker celebrates his second goal of the game for Leeds along with teammates Neil Kilkenny and Sanchez Watt. The shot coming from the Championship game against Millwall at Elland Road on the 21st August, 2010. Davide replaced Federico Bessone in the game on 75 minutes and scored his first just four minutes later.

South African Davide Somma earned himself an extended spell with the Whites after he was brought in on loan in July 2009. After impressing in the 2009-10 pre-season friendlies which included a goal against Newport County manager Simon Grayson made the extended period permanent in September 2009. On 26th November, 2009 Davide was loaned out to Chesterfield for one month in a bid to aid his development in the English game but missed a lot of the Spireites games through injury. After a brief return to Elland Road he was again loaned out this time to Lincoln City on the 25th February, 2010 to gain more first team experience. Somma made a great impression for the Imps scoring nine goals in just fourteen appearances for the club which helped secure Lincoln's survival in Division Two. Somma returned to Leeds after his loan period with Lincoln finished, his strong performances for Lincoln earned Somma an extended stay with The Whites for at least another year. Manager Grayson had said that Somma is part of his plans and will not be going out on loan for the 2010/11 season. After signing for Leeds Somma became the fifth South African to play for the club he follows Gerry Francis, Albert Johanneson, Lucas Radebe and Phil Masinga.

Leeds United: Schmeichel, Connolly, Collins, Naylor, Bessone, Kilkenny, Sam, Howson, Johnson, Becchio, Watt.
Subs: Somma for Bessone, Hughes for Sam.
