The Youth Alliance League season begins for our Under-19 side on Saturday morning

- Huddersfield Town U19s vs Mansfield Town
- First Youth Alliance League action for the Young Terriers
- Supporters welcome to attend the 11.30am kick-off

Huddersfield Town’s Under-19 side kick-off their Youth Alliance campaign on Saturday morning when they welcome Mansfield Town to the Millers Oils High Performance Complex for an 11.30am kick-off.

Our Young Terriers start their 2023/24 Youth Alliance League season on Saturday 5 August 2023 at home to Mansfield Town in an 11.30am kick-off, with the game being played at the Millers Oils High Performance Complex (509 Leeds Road, Huddersfield, HD2 1YJ).

Part of Group A, which consists of clubs within the North and North East, Town’s Under-19s finished ninth on 22 points last season.

The youngsters come into this campaign off the back of a pre-season that saw them win two out five of their games – most recently their 0-2 away win over Emley on Wednesday 2 August, which took place at 7.30pm.

A collective Academy side took on Emley's U21 side, as we saw a team built from both B Team players and Under-19 players, which we won 2-0 with both goals scored in the first 30 minutes from U19 striker Hazeem Bakre.

The first goal from the young striker came inside the fourth minute of the game. The ball was played to captain Ben Midgley on the right of the penalty area, his low cross to Bakre gave him the simple task of beating the 'keeper from around the penalty spot.

Our second goal came from a set piece as Midgley's corner from our left was met by a bullet header from our forward with the ball flying into the back of the net off the near post.

It's fair to say that we couild have scored more in this game but we were wasteful when in front of the goal with our chances.

However, we will be looking to use this win as momentum in order to start this season’s campaign on a high with three points to build on.

As always, supporters are welcome to attend this fixture at the Millers Oils High Performance Complex on Saturday morning if you are not making the trip to Plymouth Argyle for the first Sky Bet Championship game of the season, and cheer on the Terriers of tomorrow!

Please be aware that parking at Millers Oils High Performance Complex is limited, so arrive in plenty of time or there might be a chance you have to park elsewhere.

Visitors equalise with final kick of the game.

- Huddersfield Town U19s 2-2 Mansfield Town
- Hazeem Bakre & Anthony Gregory score
- B Team travels to Sunderland on Monday

Town’s Under-19 side was denied a win in their opening EFL Youth Alliance fixture of the season on Saturday when visitors Mansfield equalised from the penalty spot with the final kick of the game.

The Young Terriers’, featuring four trialists in the squad, had to defend well against the visitors throughout, but counterpunched well to take a two-goal lead through striker Hazeem Bakre and centre back Anthony Gregory’s first for the club.

However, despite the heroics of goalkeeper Francis Hurl, who performed very well throughout, the visitors managed come back to gain a point.

Having defended their box well to start the game, Town took the lead in the 13th minute. Trialist Toluwa Junaid did well to keep the ball in on the touchline and found midfielder Temi Okuwa, who spread play to the right for winger Aaron Ojungu. He drove forward and then infield before passing to first year scholar Oliver Calland, who moved the ball into the area for Bakre; he touch one touch before firing past the goalkeeper.

Mansfield were awarded three penalties in the game, the first coming two minutes after the Town opener when trialist Isaac Acquah brought down a winger from behind. However, Hurl did brilliantly, flinging himself to his left to claw the ball away before a free kick was awarded.

The visitors missed a point-blank header before Town scored their second in the 38th minute. Acquah did well to win a corner on our left side and when captain Dylan Helliwell delivered the set piece into the box, Gregory (pictured above) rose highest to nod the ball towards goal, with it cannoning in off a defender.

Hurl made several good saved as the game continued, whilst Bakre went close to a second with a snapshot at the other end.

It was Mansfield who reduced the arrears with around 20 minutes left, with another trialist inadvertently putting a Mansfield player clear with a tackle in midfield and that playing finally beating Hurl.

Mansfield’s second penalty was awarded soon after when a trialist made a clumsy challenge, but this time the spot kick was fired over.

However, the referee offered a slightly harsh looking third in added time when Freddie Fletcher was adjudged to have blocked a shot with his arm, from which he was shown a straight red card. This time Mansfield did convert.

Town’s B Team is back in action on Monday evening, travelling to the north east to take on Sunderland at the Academy of Light.

Francis Hurl; Omari Mrisho, Freddie Fletcher, Anthony Gregory, Isaac Acquah; Dylan Helliwell (c), Temi Okuwa; Aaron Ojungu, Oliver Calland (Israel Ajana, 46’), Toluwa Junaid; Hazeem Bakre (Alieu Kebe, 66’)
