DANNY SCHOFIELD’S EDT READY FOR BLACKPOOL TEST

2 March 2020

Academy Coach Danny Schofield speaks ahead of Tuesday’s game against Blackpool

- Elite Development Team face Blackpool Reserves on Tuesday 3 March 2020
- Coach Danny Schofield explains what the Young Terriers are working on
- Supporters can watch the fixture at PPG Canalside for free!

Huddersfield Town Academy Coach Danny Schofield says his side will benefit from playing with First Team players ahead of the game against Blackpool.

Schofield returned to the Club in February 2020, after making 285 appearances during his 10-year spell as a midfielder for Town.

Since re-joining as a Coach, Danny has been emphasising the importance of player relationships on the pitch to his team in training.

“We’ve been focusing a lot on relationships between the players and their movements, so relationships between full backs and wingers, attacking movements from attacking players, and forward movements in from behind.

“We’ve been looking at stretching play so we can really damage the opposition if we get the chance.

“Defensively we’ve worked a lot one vs ones, being aggressive, winning the ball, playing on the front foot and anticipating the play so we can be first to the ball and not give the opposition any time.”

The Young Terriers take on Blackpool Reserves on Tuesday, whom they beat 4-3 in the reserve fixture back in November 2019. Danny discussed what he expects to see from his youngsters.

“First and foremost, effort and application.

“We’ve also got the fundamentals of football, so when we press can we get the ball high up, depending on the opposition we play against if they play it long can we win first balls can we win second balls.

“When we’re in possession can we be expansive, can we be creative, can we build and play up through the thirds.

“I want us to be very courageous in possession, so plenty of movement, plenty of relationships between players and for things we’ve been working on in training to materialise on the pitch.”

A few Huddersfield Town First Team players will be part of the action with the Young Terriers, something which Danny admits is beneficial for his players.

“I think it’s good for my lads to see those players listen to their experiences and it can only benefit them.

“It helps set the standards for the younger players to match and know what they need to achieve in order to make the step up in to the First Team.”

The game will kick-off at 1pm on Tuesday 6 March 2020. It’ll take place at PPG Canalside and Huddersfield Town supporters can watch the EDT in action for FREE!

Please note there is currently NO parking at PPG Canalside.

Match Reports

REPORT: TOWN EDT 4-0 BLACKPOOL

3 March 2020

Danny Schofield’s side wins latest Central League game

- Town’s Elite Development Team beat Blackpool 4-0
- Kieran Phillips grabbed a hat-trick and Demeaco Duhaney scored
- Kamil Grabara was one of Danny Cowley’s First Team players who featured

A Kieran Phillips hat-trick helped Huddersfield Town’s Elite Development Team to a comprehensive 4-0 victory over Blackpool Reserves in the Central League.

Demeaco Duhaney’s screamer opened the scoring for Town shortly before the break, which was then followed by three goals from Phillips to earn the Young Terriers a comfortable win.

A number of Danny Cowley’s squad were in action for Town, including Kamil Grabara. The on-loan Liverpool FC goalkeeper was making his first appearance since picking up a head injury during the First Team’s 2-1 victory at Hull City.

Town began the game in the ascendancy, but openings were at a premium due to the visitors’ deep defensive line. The first chance of the afternoon fell to Jaheim Headley, whose low drive was destined for the bottom corner but for a good clearance off the line.

Olly Dyson, who was a useful outlet down the right throughout the first half, then went close to an opener. His initial effort was blocked, but it rebounded back kindly to him and he then saw his second attempt saved by the ‘keeper.

The Young Terriers then made their possession count five minutes before the interval. A short corner from Matty Daly picked out Duhaney on the edge of the box, who turned onto his right-foot and fired home an unstoppable effort from the edge of the area.

It got even better for Town in added time of the first half, when they doubled their advantage following a swift counter attack. Daly’s excellent switch of play located the run of Dyson in space. He drove at the heart of the Blackpool defence, before feeding Phillips, who dispatched the opportunity clinically into the corner.

Schofield’s side were forced to soak up some early pressure in the second half and Grabara was called into action, as he bravely dived at the feet of Joe Nuttall to preserve Town’s two goal lead.

The Young Terriers then put the game beyond doubt. Aaron Rowe did well to win the ball from Ryan Edwards high up the field, before he advanced into the penalty area and found Phillips. The on-loan Everton striker had the simple task of sliding home and duly obliged.

Some more good pressing from Town’s youngsters earned them their fourth goal of the afternoon. Substitute Will McCamley won the ball in the Blackpool half and in similar fashion to the third, squared for Phillips who tapped home for his hat-trick.
