Cooper Skerry Joins Leeds United
News From Australia
“Obviously the likes of Harry Kewell and Mark Viduka were huge names here - and I’d love to make an impact of my own one day,” said Skerry, who played his formative football with NPL side Brisbane City before signing a two-year scholarship contract with Leeds.
“Right now I’m playing with the Under-18s and my goal this season would be to make a debut with the Under-23s.
“Beyond that, I’d love to establish myself with the reserves - but right now I’m still developing the basics.
“There’s a huge difference in the quality of training between here and Australia and I’m trying to get all the aspects of my game to the best level possible.
“Obviously the end goal is to reach the top but it’s all about developing my skills.”
