All this week, Kian Leavy has been north of the border turning out for Manchester United’s Under 15 side in the Super Cup NI – the prestigous international youth soccer competition formerly known as the Milk Cup. The Republic of Ireland underage international has come up against sides from Chile, Northern Ireland and England so far and impressed too. Here are a selection of images of Kian in action.
