Striker set to stay until the end of December

Simon Church has today extended his loan stay with the Terriers from Reading, until December 31.

The 23 year-old’s original deal with Town was due to expire after the Bolton game on Saturday 8 December, but he will now stay with the Terriers until December 31, inclusive.

The Welsh international has featured in two games for Town since joining in early November and opened his goal account against Brighton last Saturday. He also provided a debut assist for Jermaine Beckford to score the winner against Barnsley.

As a result of the loan extension the striker will be available for the games against Hull City, Crystal Palace, Blackpool and Sheffield Wednesday.

Huddersfield Town Manager Simon Grayson was delighted that Church would be staying with the Terriers until the New Year:

“Simon has proven within just a couple of weeks that he is a top striker and we are delighted that we have secured him until the end of the year.

“Our Christmas schedule is very hectic and with both James Vaughan and Jermaine Beckford currently suffering with injuries, he provides depth and strength to our forward line.

“He has demonstrated his versatility since he arrived with his ability to play on both the wing and upfront and we hope that he continues to flourish in a Huddersfield Town shirt.”
