Huddersfield Town Under-19 midfielder Myles Bright has seen improvements in his game thanks to advice from First Team players.
The Young Terrier has benefitted from Town’s new Academy structure, which sees players involved with the B Team get the opportunity to train with the First Team.
Bright spoke to htafc.com about how the experience benefitting him.
“The difference between the First Team and the Academy is that the training is a faster pace.
“The First Team training is all about being fast and sharp and that puts me a step ahead when I then go on to play for the Academy.
“The First Team players help me with things that I need to improve on in the training sessions, so then when I take this back to the Academy it means I can pass it on to the younger boys."
The London-born midfielder went on to discuss his relationships with the new intake of Academy scholars both on and off the pitch.
“Since they’ve started they’ve been really good; they’re very focused and they’re ready to learn.
“I’ve enjoyed playing with Brodie Spencer, David Adewoju, Donay O’Brien-Brady and Conor Falls – they’re really involved with the team, which helps when you’re playing and training together.
“We’ve got good chemistry between the five of us and we work to translate that onto the pitch.”
Myles was also keen to highlight his aims for the rest of the 2020/21 season.
“Since I’ve been back this season, I have been focusing on my passing. I can see the improvement in my game.
“Last season I wasn’t really confident when it came to playing longer range passes, but now that I’m hitting them more frequently I’m able to see improvements, which makes me more confident.
“My aims for this season are to stay focused and not become complacent. I’m going to keep giving it my all every day and see where that takes me.”
Myles and his teammates will be back in action on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Middlesbrough, you can follow live tweets on Town’s Academy Twitter; @htafcacademy.
