U19S MAKE POSITIVE PROGRESS AHEAD OF HOSTING ABERDEEN

14 November 2019

Young Terriers have improved their results and performances since they last faced the Dons

- Under-19s take on Aberdeen on Saturday 16 November 2019
- Supporters can watch Dean Whitehead’s youngsters at PPG Canalside
- Young Terriers have made positive progress since they last met in September
 
Huddersfield Town’s Under-19s side have seen an improvement in their results and performances since strengthening their team.
 
As games for Town’s youngsters continue to come thick and fast, they’ve brought positive results and performances with them.
 
Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager Leigh Bromby commented on what’s changed for the Under-19s since their previous game against Aberdeen in September.
 
“That first test against Aberdeen was a tough test because the players had to travel a long way beforehand, which is part of their learning as well because it’s something that they’re going to have to do with the First Team.
 
“I thought with the struggle with the travel up there we looked like we lacked a little bit of energy when we played them last time, but I think since that game we’ve had a lot of positives, a lot of positive results and performances, and the strength of the team’s improved.
 
“I think with Danny and Nicky coming in they’ve involved a lot of the fringe First Team players such as Josh Koroma and Reece Brown which really helps the young players.
 
“Having them around has helped strengthen our team, so I think depending on the personnel on Saturday I’d expect us to perform better than what we did when we last played against Aberdeen.”
 
Bromby also spoke about instilling a winning mentality into the Academy players.
 
“We still want the players to learn and to develop them, but we want to instil that fight.
 
“Against Wigan they showed that, it was outstanding the competitiveness of the game, the want to win was there to see and the battle for each other.
 
“We call it Terrier Spirit and that was evident in that game, so that’s something that we always try to work on.
 
“This game against Aberdeen is an EDT performance game –a game that we structure and work on to try and win, so we try and emulate the First Team.
 
“We want to win the game, so we prepare and give them that experience like it would be for the First Team, and part of our job as Coaches is to create that and create that pressure for the players.
 
“That’s why we’ve organised these games, because the teams are good and the level’s good and we want to approach them a bit differently.
 
“It is a huge thing and to become a First Team player that’s what you need, so we’ve got to develop that in our players as well – that fight to win.”
 
The game will kick-off at noon at PPG Canalside on Saturday 16 November 2019 and Huddersfield Town supporters can watch the Under-19s in action for FREE!

Match Reports

REPORT: ABERDEEN 3-2 TOWN U19S

16 November 2019

Young Terriers narrowly beaten in five goal thriller

- Town’s Under-19s narrowly beaten by Aberdeen
- Triallist and Remi Thompson on the score sheet
- Two triallists start for the Young Terriers
 
Huddersfield Town’s Under-19s were defeated 3-2 by Aberdeen at PPG Canalside this afternoon.
 
After leading at the break courtesy of a goal from a Trialist, the away side responded with two goals to turn the game on its head with 20 minutes to play.
 
Substitute Remi Thompson then put Town back on level terms shortly after, but Dons striker Bruce Anderson completed his hat-trick to ensure Aberdeen returned to Scotland with the win.
 
Town midfielder Tim Akinola then saw red in stoppage time for a strong challenge that incensed the visitors’ players and coaching staff.
 
Despite a number of key players missing through the First Team’s exploits in Dubai, the Young Terriers started the brighter of the two teams and broke the deadlock ten minutes in. Akinola fed the ball inside to the Trialist, who drove the ball into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.
 
Huddersfield’s relentless pressing throughout the first half suffocated the away side’s attempts to play out from the back as they struggled to create anything clear-cut.
 
They did, however, come close to levelling just before the break when Ethan Ross’ deflected effort crashed against the outside of the post.
 
The Dons came out for the second half a rejuvenated outfit and got back on level terms shortly after the break when Anderson tapped home a cut-back from E. Ross.
 
The Young Terriers refused to let their heads drop following the concession of an equaliser and almost re-took the lead when Akinola curled just wide following a slick passing move.
 
Aberdeen then found themselves in front for the first time of the afternoon when E. Ross again set up Anderson, who expertly picked out the corner from the edge of the area.
 
Town were not behind for long, though, as Thompson bundled home from close-range at the second attempt following an inch perfect cross from the Trialist to leave it all to play for with 15 left to play.
 
As the Young Terriers looked to force the issue in attack, they were then punished on the counter attack when Anderson chased down a long ball to get there ahead of the Town defence, before slotting calmly past Harrison Davison-Hale for his third of the afternoon.
 
Huddersfield huffed and puffed in the closing stages in a search for an equaliser - with half-chances falling to both Will McCamley and the Trialist - but it was just wasn’t to be for Town, who will feel hard done by that they didn’t manage to claim at least a point.
