Sean McGurk: It’s a perfect way to start the season

Goalscorer on win over the Eagles.


Sean McGurk had a competitive debut to remember for Leeds United Under 23s, as he scored the third in the 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

The Whites had to work hard for the three points at Selhurst Park, but they remained patient and found a way through to claim and opening day win.

“I think it’s a perfect way to start off the season,” McGurk told LUTV.

“With them going down to 10 men early, it’s never easy, but the lads dug in deep and got the win in the end.

“Coming off the bench in your first game, you want to get yourself a goal and to do that, I am over the moon.

“Coming up into this league, it’s a higher league than last season, but all the lads have prepared well and worked hard day in, day out.

“This is just the start of what can hopefully be another good season for us."

Having arrived from Wigan Athletic this summer, the young winger has settled well into the side and praised the group for their camaraderie, whilst looking ahead to the rest of the campaign.

“I’ve only been here a few weeks, but I can tell how close all the group is,” McGurk explained.

“If that’s how they have been off the pitch, then on the pitch it will be even better. That’s the main part of having a good team that works well.

“This season, with the league we are in, every single game will be tough.

“There will not be an easy game for anyone so we will just have to take it game by game and do our best each week.”
