However, Christy showed his ability while on duty for the Under-17s last time out, pulling off a magnificent save from a well-taken free-kick that was heading for the top corner.
The West Yorkshire outfit went on to lose the cup quarter-final tie 1-0 in extra time, but Christy’s moment of class caught the eye of Phil Hay and several sections of the Leeds fanbase.
“Brilliant save – not sure about the wall positioning though from that angle. Unreal save though”
“It was, lad is class”
“Christ(y) that’s good!”
“Sign him up”
“Wow what a save!”
Illan Meslier may have the No.1 jersey secured at Elland Road for now, but if Christy keeps pulling off saves like that, perhaps it won’t be long until we see a new face between the sticks. Clearly, some fans want Marcelo Bielsa to hand him a first-team contract.
