Huddersfield Town B Team midfielder Jon Russell is enjoying his time at the Club so far.
Sitting down for his first interview since signing for the B Team in July 2021, Russell was quick to comment on what he’s made of life at Huddersfield Town so far.
“I’m enjoying it!
“Everyone here’s really nice.
“They’re always trying to make me improve, which is what I need.
“It’s just a good environment to be in.
“I’m really enjoying it.”
The midfielder has impressed early on since his arrival, seeing him train with the First Team and be an unused substitute on several occasions. He discussed how he’s found the step up.
“It’s good to get experience.
“I was on the bench for the Everton game and that was a really good experience – it was really lively.
“It just gives me a good insight for what’s to come.”
The 21-year-old also commented on what his aims are for the 2021/22 season.
“It’s 100% to make my debut and then build from that and stay in the First Team.
“I’d like to get a lot of games under my belt and just be a crucial player in the First Team.”
The B Team are back in action on Wednesday 3 November 2021, when they welcome Queens Park Rangers to Canalside. Russell says he’s expecting a tough opponent.
“I expect QPR to be pretty solid.
“I expect them to be technical players as well.
“I think it’ll be a tough game, but I think by the way we’ve trained and how we’ve applied ourselves, I don’t think it’ll be a problem for us.”
