Young Terriers to work on part of the transitional game against Salford City

- Under-19s take on Salford City on Friday 1 November 2019
- Supporters can watch Dean Whitehead’s youngsters at PPG Canalside
- Young Terriers will work on attacking transitions in their latest match

Huddersfield Town’s Under-19s side will work on their attacking transitional game against Salford City as they continue their development.

The game will kick-off at 1pm at PPG Canalside on Friday 1 November 2019 and Huddersfield Town supporters can watch the Under-19s in action for FREE!

As games for Town’s youngsters continue to come thick and fast, they also continue their development with the current training phase focusing on attacking transitions.

With that, the youngsters in each position have specific tasks and aims to work on to effectively use the transition within matches.

Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager Leigh Bromby commented:

“This is a development-based game for the youngsters who have been working hard on our attacking transitions.

“To make this style affective every player has a role to play and specific targets to meet.

“In short, our defenders look to pass through the lines, our midfielders have to offer angles between the lines, and our strikers have to make penetrating runs in-behind to stretch play.

“There’s more detail to it than that, but they’re good examples of what we expect from them in games like these.

“These games are also fantastic for us to see what the lads have been picking up on in training and what needs extra work.

“The balance between performance-based games, objective games, and development games, will help progress them as young footballers as they are always experiencing new scenarios.”

U19s SHOW WORK ON ATTACKING TRANSITIONS VS SALFORD

Dean Whitehead’s youngsters put into practice what they’d worked on in training

- Town’s U19s have been working on attacking transitions in training
- Dean Whitehead’s side were narrowly beaten by Salford City
- Youngsters will continue their development work in training

Huddersfield Town’s Under-19s side continued to develop the transitional element of their game as they were narrowly defeated 5-4 by Salford City at PPG Canalside on Friday afternoon.

Despite a Kit Elliott hat-trick and a sensational strike by second half substitute Scott High, Town were unable to complete a comeback against a strong Salford City side, but Dean Whitehead maintained that the objective of the match was to work on the transitional game.

“In training we are working on transitioning from deeper positions and getting up the pitch and into advanced positions quickly,” he said.

“We approached the match with the focus to transition from certain areas of the pitch effectively, seeing how quickly we could move up the pitch, create chances and score goals.

“When we are in transition and we do win the ball back in deeper positions, we always say to them the first thing to focus on in the transition phase is to look forward and be positive with their passes or drive forward with the ball. That goes for runners on and off the ball.

“If we win the ball in the middle of the pitch it is a shorter transition, but it happens just as quick, and then if we win the ball higher up we then go directly to goal.”

The Young Terriers are currently undergoing a two-week transition phase and they are continuing to work on applying it to different sectors of the pitch.

Whitehead’s side executed what they have been working on in training in the first half in the build-up to their first goal.

Town won the ball in a deep area of the pitch and Sam Sharrock-Peplow rapidly drove forward from left-back before releasing a trialist, who cut inside and slipped in Remi Thompson. The forward was cynically brought down, and Elliott converted from the spot with confidence.

Elliott displayed his composure to dispatch a second penalty in the first half, before completing his hat-trick five minutes from full-time.

High scored the goal of the afternoon as he received the ball 25-yards from goal and unleashed an exceptional strike that rocketed into the top right corner of the net.

Town’s Under-19s team vs Salford City (4-3-3)
