Young Terrier speaks ahead of tomorrow’s EFL Youth Alliance game

- Under-17s welcome Scunthorpe United tomorrow (Saturday 23 November)
- Midfielder Darnel Baxter-Alleyne on how sessions are going
- Supporters can watch the fixture at PPG Canalside

Huddersfield Town Under-17 Darnel Baxter-Alleyne talks about what he's been learning so far this season. 

Baxter-Alleyne used to be a part of the Academy at Tottenham Hotspur, Crystal Palace and Leyton Orient, before moving to Huddersfield during the summer to join Town’s Under-17s setup.

Baxter-Alleyne was quick to talk about how he’s found living in Yorkshire.

“Cold, very cold!”

The young midfielder was also eager to talk about the difference between Huddersfield and his previous Clubs.

“It’s more welcoming.

“All the Coaches are nice, and they’ve been helping with my development and giving me good pointers.

“Jon Worthington, Lee Mellor, and Leigh Bromby – they’re all helping me to really improve.

“I’ve learnt a lot more about my position here and where to receive the ball to benefit the game.”

The Under-17s training is split into different blocks per session to target different key areas, something which Baxter-Alleyne has found beneficial.

“At the start we focused on emotion, then we moved on to building, then creating, so we focussed on how to create chances and movement patterns.

“We’ve just finished the fight zone, so what to do out of possession when we’re off the ball, and we’re now working on transition.

“Transition involves learning about what to do when we win the ball, or if we’ve just lost the ball, what our reactions are like.”

You can watch Baxter-Alleyne and his team mates in action tomorrow (Saturday 23 November) when they welcome Scunthorpe United to PPG Canalside. The game kicks off at 11am and Huddersfield Town supporters can watch the Under-17s in action for FREE!

Please note there's no parking available at PPG Canalside!

Training work on display in competitive game against the Iron

- Huddersfield Town Under-17s working on attacking transitions
- Training work evident in both of Robson Shipley’s goals
- Under-19s back in action at Rotherham United on Tuesday

The work that Town’s Under-17 side is putting in on attacking transitions was on display in the latest EFL Youth Alliance game on Saturday, with both of Robson Shipley’s goals against Scunthorpe United straight from the training ground.

Having played the Clarets Cup victory against Preston North End just two days earlier, coach Jon Worthington named a much-changed side against the Iron, with the focus on taking the training work into the game.

Robson – a very young 16-year-old First Year scholar – netted two in the second half, with the current training focus bearing fruit.

As well as working on ‘reactive pressure – reacting immediately when losing possession in order to win it back – the Under-17s are also working on the transition from being out of possession to getting back on the attack.

That current body of work will continue until Christmas, with the regular Youth Alliance League games – such as Saturday’s game against Scunthorpe – being used as extended training sessions, when the Young Terriers can practise that work against an opponent.

The Youth Alliance Cup games, alongside the U17 Clarets Cup fixtures, are used as ‘performance’ games, when Worthington challenges his scholars to perform and win.

Unfortunately, the next Under-17 game against Sheffield Wednesday, scheduled for Tuesday, has been postponed.

However, Town’s Academy are back in action tomorrow (Tuesday 26 November) with the U19s travelling to take on Rotherham United in the Central League Cup. The game takes place at Roundwood Sports Complex (S62 6LA) and kicks off at 1pm. Supporters are welcome to attend.
