City sign Leeds goalkeeper on loan

By Ian Appleyard | 12th October 2017

YORK City have completed the signing of goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell on a month’s loan from Leeds United.

Peacock-Farrell was called-up to the full Northern Ireland squad in August and has also played in the Championship for Leeds.

He goes straight into the City squad for Saturday’s Vanarama National League North game at Leamington.

Manager Martin Gray said: “He’s been very highly recommended. He’s big, 6ft 4ins, and very athletic. He has got a massive future ahead of him but he needs some real senior football now and, hopefully, we can give him the opportunity.”

Born in Darlington, Peacock-Farrell spent seven years at Middlesbrough’s youth academy before joining Leeds in 2013.

He signed his first professional contract with the Elland Road club in 2015 and agreed a new three year deal only this summer.

He made his full Leeds debut, aged just 19, in a 1-1 draw against Queens Park Rangers in the Championship 18 months ago.
