MAGIC AL JUST HAS FUN WITH HIS PALS

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By David John

HAV­ING a laugh in the Cham­pi­onship with his old youth team pals is be­hind the out­stand­ing form that has made Leeds United mid­fielder Alex Mowatt the Foot­ball League’s young player of the month for Novem­ber.

The 19-year-old scored three stun­ning goals and made two as­sists for Neil Red­fearn’s side last month to take the cov­eted ac­co­lade.

Mowatt, who joined the El­land Road out­fit as a nineyear-old hav­ing pre­vi­ously at­tended one of their de­vel­op­ment cen­tres, said:“This sea­son I think I have stepped it up from last year and I’ve done well.

“There are a few lads from the academy in the first team now and th­ese are my mates away from foot­ball, so to be cel­e­brat­ing goals and hav­ing fun with them on the pitch is just bril­liant.”

The Eng­land U20 in­ter­na­tional’s old youth team boss, and now first-team gaffer, Red­fearn added:“The scope of what is in front of him is im­mea­sur­able. He has the world at his feet and is an out­stand­ing young player.”
