U19 INTERVIEW: AARON ROWE ON SPANISH TEST

Young winger on his development at Huddersfield Town

- Interview with Under-19 winger Aaron Rowe
- Rowe on his time with the First Team in Portugal
- Winger discusses the Young Terriers’ latest challenges on tour in Spain

After impressing for Town’s Under-19s, young winger Aaron Rowe is focused on developing his game to help him progress even further.

The 18-year-old has been with the Terriers for just over a year and under the guidance of Mark Hudson and the Academy coaches he’s seen his game go from strength to strength.

When speaking to htafc.com he explained what he’s changed to get the most out of his performances.

“In my first game I wasn’t really a player that would run off the ball and affect the game when I wasn’t on the ball, but I think that’s improved massively, and I’m proud of that.

“Mark Hudson has had a big influence on me. He told me what I needed to improve on and where I needed to be without the ball.

“Now I try to use everything he told me in training and treat those sessions like they are a match day, so I get the best out of myself.”

After coming off early for an Under-19 game against Brentford B, Aaron was told he would be part of the First Team Training Camp in Portugal – the first under Jan Siewert.

He described it as a “big shock” and went into detail about how important that experience will be for him.

“It was a wonderful experience, a learning experience to get on with the players, bond with them and spend time with them.

“I was nervous at first, and then once you get going and you get the ball more, you realise this is normal football.”

Since his glimpse of First Team football, the youngster has been inspired to continue his development and work even harder.

“Because I’ve been on a trip with them, I think with my game and the way I play now will improve. I have to improve every time I play and keep improving.”

Not only has the tour of Portugal encouraged Rowe to keep improving, his close work alongside Mark Hudson has contributed to his motivation too.

“I think me and Huddy have a good relationship, he knows my game well.

“He’s a big influence, he always wants me to improve and always gets me to play well.

“If I make a mistake, he keeps telling what to do and what not to do and it’s good to have coaches like that around you.”

After his time away with the First Team, Aaron then joined the Under-19s squad to partake in a Spanish tour, playing against both Real Betis’ and Sevilla’s development sides.

After a 3-1 loss against Real Betis, Rowe said the challenge was tough, but worth it.

“It was hard, after travelling and then playing in the morning, the Spanish style is to keep the ball for fun, so it was really hard but good as well at the same time.”

Now looking forward to the next fixture in Spain, the Young Terriers’ winger said he was ‘very excited’ for the match against Sevilla.

“Their First Team is very good, and Spanish teams always produce very good young players.

“They’ll probably be better than Real Betis, so it’ll be a good challenge for us and myself as well.”

Town’s Under-19 side will face Sevilla on Thursday 7 February 2019 (10am UK time kick-off) at the Club’s Training Ground: Ciudad Deportiva José Ramón Cisneros Palacios.

The match will be a real test for Dean Whitehead’s side, with Sevilla’s Under-19 side faring very well this season. The La Liga club’s Under-19 side plays in the top flight of Spanish Academy football, the División de Honor Juvenil, currently sitting first in the division with 61 points from 25 games.

REPORT: SEVILLA 0-2 TOWN U19s

Superb Young Terriers’ display against a top Spanish side

- Huddersfield Town Under-19s win 2-0 against Sevilla in Spain
- Winger Aaron Rowe scores both goals in superb second-half display
- Average age of the starting line-up is just over 18

Huddersfield Town’s Under-19 side put in a top-class second-half display to defeat host Sevilla’s Under-19 team by two goals in Spain on Thursday morning.

After a challenging first 45 minutes against the side that is leading the Spanish Under-19 league, Dean Whitehead’s youngsters turned on the style in the second-half to record another fantastic win on central European soil.

Winger Aaron Rowe (pictured above), who travelled with Head Coach Jan Siewert’s First Team to Portugal recently, netted both goals; the second stunning effort. However, every player from the squad, which has an average age of under 18 years old, deserved credit for a great performance.

Whitehead’s men had to show real resilience in the opening 45 minutes, with Sevilla enjoying most of the attacking play.

However, Rowe was still involved early on. Playing on the right of a front three, the 18-year-old looked to have been fouled twice in the Sevilla penalty area inside the first quarter of an hour, only for the referee to turn away the appeals.

Sevilla’s number 10, the real danger man for the hosts, was at the heart of the action, but thankfully his team missed the target with a few presentable opportunities.

New goalkeeper Jacob Chapman’s first save of note came in the 22nd minute and was routine, whilst the young centre back pairing of Oran Thompson and Mustapha Olagunju – the latter in only his second start at Under-19 level – along with Rarmani Edmonds-Green in a holding midfield role, did their best to keep the home side at bay.

Chapman did well again in the 34th minute to come out and block an effort at source after Thompson had got his head to a Sevilla corner.

Whitehead introduced Under-17 midfielder Jaheim Headley at half-time, moving Edmonds-Green to his usual centre back role, and Town came flying out of the blocks.

The opener came just five minutes into the half, with Rowe the scorer. The central midfield duo of captain Scott High and 17-year-old Josh Austerfield pressured Sevilla, with Austerfield making the tackle. He found Rowe, who went on an excellent solo run to work himself into a shooting position before smashing the ball home.

That buoyed the Young Terriers, with Rowe soon flashing another shot just wide before left back Ben Jackson almost found striker Kit Elliott for a sure second goal.

Whitehead brought on several Under-17 players on the hour mark including Tom Bamford, Kian Harratt and Sam Sharrock-Peplow on the hour mark and they competed admirably with the Spanish opponents. Harratt soon set Micah Obiero away to win a corner and from the delivery, Headley tested the goalkeeper with a header.

High forced the goalkeeper into a low save with a free-kick soon after and the pressure continued, with the second goal following with 15 minutes left. It was well worth the wait, with High switching play to Rowe in outstanding fashion and the winger beating several men again before firing a shot home off the post. The goal was as good as you’ll see at any level all season.

Chapman had to collect another Sevilla free-kick as the game ended, but the Terriers saw the game out in relatively comfortable fashion, recording another landmark result.

Highlights of the game will appear on #HTTV this week!
