A Nab Wood School pupil is celebrating after signing schoolboy forms with Leeds United FC.

Jahsiah Donaldson, 14, will spend one day a week studying and training at Elland Road in September after being picked up by the League One side.

Jahsiah will be following in the footballing footsteps of his older brother, Clayton, 24, currently a striker with Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League.

Nab Wood School pastoral manager Ibrarhim Hussain said: “Jahsiah is very talented. He gets picked all the time for football and is coming on very well academically.

“He is a mature and confident lad who is a positive role model. Hopefully he will do well and sign a professional contract at 16.”
