Left-back extends deal with League 2 Club

Huddersfield Town left-back Liam Ridehalgh has today extended his loan deal with npower League 2 outfit Chesterfield for a further two months.

The 21 year-old is in his second spell with the Spireites after finishing off last season on loan at the Proact Stadium.

Huddersfield Town manager Simon Grayson is pleased with the impact Liam has made since his move to Chesterfield.

“Liam has shown that he is a quality defender in a short space of time and has fitted in perfectly to Chesterfield’s plans,” said Simon.

“The extra two months will give him further time to make an impact, develop as a footballer, and help Chesterfield move up the league.”

Ridehalgh has made seven appearances since joining Chesterfield in late August, with six of those being starts. With the left-back in the team this season Chesterfield haven’t lost and are currently 13th in npower League 2.

Liam’s new deal will run until 24 November inclusive, but Town do have a 24 hour recall clause in the contract.

Town midfielder Chris Atkinson is also enjoying his time in Derbyshire having made three starts since his switch in mid-September. The young midfielder scored on debut and has since helped the Spireites record victories over Accrington and Northampton.

Town striker Kallum Higginbotham began his loan spell at npower League 1 Carlisle on the weekend, coming on as a second-half substitute as Carlisle moved to tenth with a 2-1 victory at Coventry.
