Watch: Leeds talent Summerville stakes first-team claim with stunning U23s hat-trick


Footage of Leeds United starlet Crysencio Summerville showcasing his goalscoring talents during an outing for the club's Under-23s piqued attentions across the Whites' fanbase on Monday night.

Regular viewers of Leeds will of course be familiar with the name of youngster Summerville.

The Dutch youth international was afforded a regular spot in the club's first-team setup by now-former boss Marcelo Bielsa, making eight appearances across the opening half of the campaign.

And the winger showcased precisely why he was held in such high regard by Bielsa in an Under-23s game for Leeds against Crystal Palace as the two met for a crucial Premier League 2 clash.

Andrew Taylor's hosts headed into proceedings no doubt desperate for all three points, sitting third from bottom in the PL2 table with just six wins to their name all season.

Monday night, though, saw Leeds' latest crop of up-and-coming talent provide a reminder of their true abilities.

Check out footage of all three of Summerville's goals versus Crystal Palace below:

A fine display ultimately culminated in the Yorkshire outfit emerging on the right side of a 4-0 scoreline, climbing clear of both Blackburn and Everton into 10th.

And it was that man Summerville who stole the show.

The 20-year-old bagged both the game's opener and second courtesy of sumptuous bending strikes off either foot, before capping off a wonderful individual showing with a hat-trick-clinching third late on.

Leeds' U23s returning to winning ways of course comes fresh on the back of the club's senior stars seeing their own rare stretch of successive Premier League victories brought to an end by Ralph Hasenhuttl's Southampton over the weekend.

A meeting at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon saw Jack Harrison’s opener just shy of the half-hour mark cancelled out by James Ward-Prowse early in the 2nd-half, as Southampton’s captain ensured that the visitors returned to the south coast with a share of the spoils courtesy of yet another stunning free-kick.
