B TEAM HOST WREXHAM ON WEDNESDAY

27 September 2022

First Central League game of the season for the Young Terriers

- Huddersfield Town B Team back in action on Wednesday
- Young Terriers welcome Wrexham in Central League Cup
- Jon Worthington previews the B Team game

Huddersfield Town’s B Team start their Central League campaign on Wednesday 28 September when they host Wrexham!

The Young Terriers will begin their Central League campaign against Wrexham at 1pm, with the game taking place at Millers Oils High Performance Complex (509 Leeds Road, Huddersfield, HD2 1YJ).

Part of the North-West Division of the Central League this season, Town’s B Team will face Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Accrington Stanley, Preston North End, Fleetwood Town, and Wrexham.

Supporters can attend the 1pm kick-off on Wednesday completely free of charge!

The lads will be in their home blue and white kit for this fixture.

Our B Team Manager, Jon Worthington, spoke about the spirit within the group and the aim for these Central League games.

“The spirits are always high; I think the lads have been really engaged in training and they’re just ready for another game.

“I think winning is important, as we’re always wanting to create that winning mentality - especially with the older players.

“These games are good because they give opportunity for minutes and for player development.

“Tomorrow will probably be a younger group then in previous games, but it just gives more opportunity to players to compete.

“I think with the B Team group, it is really important where you create a culture where you go to games to win and want to be really competitive.”

Worthington then went on to discuss what the Young Terriers are expecting from the Wrexham side in tomorrow’s game.

“I think like all the games, I expect it to be competitive and I expect them to be a decent side, but I think with all the Central League games some of the games do fluctuate depending on whether the teams are playing experienced players who are wanting minutes, or they are playing younger and more developing players.”

REPORT: TOWN B 1-1 WREXHAM

28 September 2022

Young side draws in first Central League game of 2022/23

- Huddersfield Town B Team draws with Wrexham
- Jon Worthington selects a young side for Central League game
- Goal comes late on from trialist Rafael Garcia

A young Huddersfield Town B Team opened the 2022/23 Central League campaign with a draw against Wrexham at the Millers Oils High Performance Complex on Wednesday afternoon.

With many of the senior B Team players training under new Head Coach Mark Fotheringham, it was a young side that took to the field for the game.

The Young Terriers had lots of possession throughout the game and were made to work very hard for their chances against a resilient Wrexham team, who also carried a real threat on the break.

In the end it was a late goal from trialist Rafael Garcia that rescued a point for Jon Worthington’s side, just as the game looked to be going away from the boys in blue and white.

Town bossed the ball in the opening 10 minutes, only for Wrexham to hit the bar just before the quarter hour mark. It was either an overhit cross or an amazing effort from the left winger, but in any case the ball hit Josh Mazfari’s woodwork before rolling away from danger.

It took Town until the 36th minute to fashion a genuine chance of note, with impressive full back Neo Eccleston’s cross deflecting into the air and striker Conor Falls heading over.

The Northern Ireland Under-19 international went even closer minutes later, rising brilliantly to meet skipper Ben Midgley’s corner and crashing a header against the crossbar.

Town’s strong end to the half didn’t herald a goal, as Falls’ first touch when collecting a Charles Ondo cross gave the Wrexham goalkeeper the chance to smother the ball down low.

Wrexham really grew into the game in the second half and started to create more themselves. First Mazfari was tested low to his right by the number nine, and then a ricochet set the same forward through on goal. Thankfully for the Terriers, he placed his shot wide of the far post.

Wrexham’s goal came in the 73rd minute. The forward cleverly eased centre back Ondo under a long ball forward before striding into the area and squaring for the number 11, who placed the ball into the gaping goal.

Town were struggling to test the goalkeeper, but a slice of luck created the big chance needed for the equaliser with five minutes left. An attempted ball into the box hit a defender and fell right into the path of substitute Garcia, who took a touch before finishing nicely across the goalkeeper and inside the far post.

Buoyed, Worthington’s side went the closest to a winner when that man Falls latched onto Eccleston’s cross and forced the goalkeeper into a close range save.
