Huddersfield Town’s Under-17s are in EFL Youth Alliance Cup Quarter-Final action on Tuesday (26 January 2021) when they host Walsall at Canalside.
The Young Terriers finished top of the Group B table, with four points. Their Youth Alliance Cup run so far this season has seen them draw 3-3 with Blackpool and showcase an energetic performance to beat Fleetwood Town 5-0!
Their opponents finished top of Group C with three points having beaten Burton Albion 3-1 and lost to Mansfield 2-1.
Whilst the two sides haven’t met yet this season, their Under-19 teammates have! Town walked away victorious on both occasions, with 3-2 and 5-2 wins.
With Jon Worthington taking charge of the B Team, Under-17s Coach George Danaher will be leading the Young Terriers in his second game in charge and is relishing the opportunity to continue working on the ‘Terriers Identity’ and mentality side of the game with his group as they look to progress to the next stage of the competition.
“We’re all looking forward to it.
“It’s a Cup game, so we’ll really focus on the mentality to go out there and win matches.
“It’ll be an exciting one!”
