Midfielder looking forward to first outing
Huddersfield Town winger Adam Hammill is looking forward to his first outing in the Terriers’ PUMA tailored 2014/15 home kit.
The 26 year-old, who made 49 appearances scoring five goals last season, was impressed with the design of the new kit when he saw it launched last week via twitter.
“I like the look of the new kit; it has a modern feel to it,” he told htafc.com. “It looks a little bit like the Argentinean kit, especially with the way that the stripes fade.
“I saw the kit for the first time on twitter last week and believe it or not you still get excited as a player to wear it for the first time. It also gears you up knowing that the return of the football season is just around the corner.”
Hammill was joined by Scotsman Paul Dixon and Murray Wallace for pre-season testing at the on Wednesday and enjoyed being back amongst the group.
“I have enjoyed being back and seeing some the lads again,” he said. “Today wasn’t about working us hard – that will come – but it was about benchmarking and I am pleased to say that my body fat has reduced! I am just looking forward to the season and giving it a right good go.”
The hard work will start on Thursday though, with Hammill and his teammates being put through their paces at PPG Canalside.
“It is a chance for the staff to observe who has been working over the summer; I have been keeping up with a few beach runs and a bit of boxing. I feel relatively sharp and I am looking forward to doing the tests, but I think that goes for everyone. Looking around at the lads they have all come back in good condition and are in a similar category when it comes to body fat. Everybody is excited and raring to go.
“We didn’t kick on last season like we should have done, but this Club is ambitious and I believe we can this season,” he added. “In my opinion we have made two very good signings already who will add plenty of experience to the squad.”
One of those recruits is Lee Peltier, a player Adam grew up playing football with: “He was the year above me in the Liverpool Academy along with Calum Woods, but I enjoyed pre-season trips with him to Italy and Austria and we played together in the First Team at Melwood.
“He is a tough competitor and a good footballer. He will bring valuable experience having played a lot of games in the Championship for some big teams.”
