Salford draw Leeds in Cup First Round

Salford City have drawn Leeds United in a potential thrilling first round contest in the Carabao Cup.

Salford, co-owned by Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Gary/Phil Neville and Paul Scholes are in for a tasty match up and they face the prospect of pitting themselves against their old rivals Leeds United for the first time in years.

Gary Neville was first to poke fun at the match up and he took to Twitter to say,

“Welcome back into my life Leeds United,” he wrote. “Not seen you for 15 years.”

Leeds United travel to Salford for the match which and it will be the first time either side have met. It is also Salfords first match in the cup competition, following their promotion out of the National League – they have everything to play for.

The class of 92 have had success and promotion since buying the club and this has the potential to be another enthralling contest.
