Development Squad Captain joins Blue Square Bet North club
A member of Town’s Development Squad has today moved out on loan to further his experience during the busy festive period.
18 year-old central midfielder Jordan Sinnott has joined Blue Square Bet North side Altrincham on loan until 12 January 2013 inclusive and is expected to go straight into their squad for their home game against Gainsborough Trinity on Saturday.
Altrincham are managed by Jordan’s father and Town’s former promotion-winning skipper Lee Sinnott. They currently sit in 9th place in their division, four points behind the Play-Off zone with two games in hand.
The deal will see Academy graduate Sinnott, who has captained the Under-21 side on 11 occasions this season, continue to work with Town’s Development Squad and join up with his new Altrincham teammates to train once a week.
Huddersfield Town’s Senior Professional Development Coach Steve Eyre believes this move is perfect for Jordan:
“Jordan has got himself into a real position of strength in terms of his fitness and we think it’s a shame that with there are being no Under-21 games until January 14, so with that in mind this is the ideal scenario for him to continue to develop.
“We know this move will suit both parties, as Altrincham has 10 games in the next month. He will learn different things there; he’s playing competitive football against seasoned players; he won’t get much time on the ball and he’ll learn to look after himself. We think he’s ready for that challenge and we will monitor his progress very carefully.”
