BRODIE SPENCER ON HIS SEASON SO FAR

16 November 2021

Defender proud of his achievements

- Brodie Spencer discusses stepping up to the B Team
- Defender enjoying continued development with Town’s Academy
- B Team travel to Newcastle on Wednesday afternoon

Huddersfield Town B Team defender Brodie Spencer is proud of what he’s achieved so far during the 2021/22 season.

Sitting down with HTTV, Spencer was quick to comment on what he’s made of the current campaign.

“I’ve found this season very good so far, both on a personal note and as a team.

“I think as a team we’ve done amazingly so far, got some good performances and some great results against some big oppositions.

“I think it’s gone very well so far, and the thing is just to keep continuing and working hard and keep doing what we’re doing.”

The 2021/22 season has seen the 17-year-old skip the Under-19s age group and move straight into the B Team. He admits that although it’s a big step up, he’s relishing it.

“I’m obviously finding it tough.

“It’s a big step up from last season, but now I’m adapting to it I’m learning a lot.

“I’m getting some regular performances in and I’m learning from some of the best players in the Academy, so I think it’s been very good so far.

“It’s been good for my development to be in and around the bigger, older, more experienced lads because it pushes me even more and helps me improve.”

This season has also seen the defender called up to play for Northern Ireland’s Under-19s.

“I would say that playing with Northern Ireland in the Euros is one of the biggest achievements of my life so far.

“I think that Northern Ireland’s an amazing country for development.

“Recently, one of my best friends since I was a kid made his debut overnight for the First Team and it gives me confidence as well to see how close I am to the First Team.

“The amount of youngsters making debuts obviously gives me and the other lads in Northern Ireland a lot of confidence.”

The B Team are back in action on Wednesday 17 November 2021, when they travel to face Newcastle United in the Premier League Cup. Spencer ran us through what he expects from the game.

“Playing Newcastle last year in the FA Youth Cup I know that they’re a very good team.

“They’re very hard to break down and very good on the counterattack, so I’m expecting the same.”

Match Reports

REPORT: NEWCASTLE UNITED 1-1 TOWN B

17 November 2021

Young Terriers take a point on the road

- Town B draw 1-1 with Newcastle United
- Three unbeaten in Premier League Cup
- Kian Harratt gets his 15th of the season

Huddersfield Town’s B Team saw out a 1-1 against Newcastle United in their third group game of the Premier League Cup.

The result saw the Young Terriers extend their unbeaten cup run to three, building on victories over Birmingham City and Watford.

A game of two halves, a dominant first half saw Kian Harratt give Town the lead through a penalty. The second 45 saw Newcastle on top for the majority, with Jay Turner-Cooke latching onto a rebound to equalise.

The game started brightly for the Young Terriers, with Brodie Spencer, Brahima Diarra, and Jaheim Headley all showing some nice play.

Town had the potential to get an early opening goal as some great work from Loick Ayina set up Harratt, but the offside flag was up.

Turner-Cooke tried an effort for the hosts, but it proved no threat for Ryan Schofield, who was gaining important minutes in his return from injury.

The 21st minute saw an excellent cross from Josh Austerfield find Headley, who in turn tried to find Harratt. Unfortunately, the wind in the ground picked up and diverted the ball!

Joe White was the next Newcastle player to try and break the deadlock, but his effort went up and over the crossbar.

The deadlock was finally broken in the 28th minute. A tackle on Ben Midgley saw Town handed a penalty, which Harratt stepped up to take. Dan Langley went the right way and got a hand on it, but couldn’t prevent it from finding the back of the net!

The 32rd minute saw the first yellow card of the game shown to Ayina for a foul on Joe White.

Ayina was at the centre of the action again just moments later, showcasing some great defending to deny Newcastle.

As the minutes to half-time continued to count down, the Young Terriers found themselves incredibly unlucky not to have taken anything from a goalmouth scramble, with Harratt, Midgley, and Headley all attempting to convert a chance.

The second half saw Newcastle the side on top, holding possession and proving a threat for the majority of the 45 minutes.

The hosts for their equaliser in the 50th minute. After an excellent initial save from Schofield, Turner-Cooke was quick to latch onto the rebound and send it into the back of the net.

The 58th minute saw Schofield provide another huge save to deny the hosts from taking the lead through a nicely done set piece.

Headley had the Young Terriers’ first chance of the second half, but Langley was there with a big save to deny the left wingback’s low strike.

Town’s second yellow card of the evening fell Camara’s way in the 69th minute for a foul on White.

Matty Bondswell missed a huge chance to post the hosts ahead as the game went into the final ten minutes, sending his shot narrowly over the crossbar.

The 82nd minute saw Gio Bellagambi come on for Schofield, who’d been struggling since a clash with Stephenson earlier on in the half.

The 90th minute saw Harratt test Langley as the game headed into four minutes of added time.

Second half substitute Connor Shanks provided some excellent play following his introduction to the pitch, including a huge run in the third minute of added time.

The final minute of added time saw Camara with some unbelievable defending to divert two good winning chances for the hosts!

The final whistle blew, seeing Town take a well-deserved point on the road in their toughest Premier League Cup game so far.
