Leeds United youngster Lewie Coyle joined the Cod Army on loan from the Elland Road outfit in July 2017.

The 21-year-old began his career with his boyhood club Leeds aged ten, in 2004, and continued through the ranks with United, reaching the first team in the 2015-16 season.

The Hull born right back was sent on loan to Harrogate Town in 2014 to gain first team experience, but this was cut short due to injury, and he returned to West Yorkshire.

Coyle’s professional debut came in December 2015 as a substitute against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground, and three weeks later made his first start in an FA Cup match against Rotherham United.

Coyle comes from a family of sporting pedigree – one brother Tommy is a professional boxer and another, Joe, is a professional golfer.

In Town’s first pre-season game, Coyle scored the winner on his debut, as the Cod Army beat Scottish side Queen of the South 1-0 at Poolfoot Farm.

He also featured in both games against Karlsruher and Jablonec during Town’s pre-season tour of Austria.
