Exciting attacker commits his future to HTAFC
Town has been handed a boost ahead of tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game at Derby County with the news that Harry Bunn has signed a long-term contract extension with the Club.
The powerful attacker, who is still only 21, has signed a contract that will keep him at Huddersfield Town until the summer of 2017, with the Club having a further year’s option at that stage.
Born in Oldham, Harry was part of the Academy system at Manchester City for over a decade. His initial taste of First Team football came through a loan spell at Rochdale before further loan experience at Preston North End, Oldham Athletic, Crewe Alexandra and Sheffield United.
He first came to Town’s attention in his spell at Crewe and was being closely monitored as he suffered an Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury in September 2012, which halted a very impressive start with the Railwaymen. After recovering his fitness, he joined Sheffield United on loan and went from strength to strength.
Harry joined Huddersfield Town in November 2013, with his initial loan from Manchester City being made permanent until the end of the 2013/14 season at the beginning of 2014.
During that time he was a regular starter and goal-scorer for the Club’s Under-21 Development Squad as it won the 2013/14 Professional Development League 2 and also made his senior debut for the Terriers, making three appearances as a substitute towards the end of the 2013/14 season.
Subsequently, under Mark Robins, the Club took up its year’s option on Harry’s contract at the conclusion of last season and he has gone on to establish himself in the team after being handed his full debut at Reading under the Caretaker Management of Mark Lillis.
So far this season, he has scored five goals in 14 appearances – scooping the Blue & White Foundation’s September ‘Player of the Month’ accolade in the process (click HERE

Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell commented:
“I’m delighted that we’ve secured Harry’s future to Huddersfield Town in the long term. The Club has been talking to Harry and his representatives behind the scenes over the last few weeks as it was important we reached an agreement that all parties – the Club and Harry – was happy with.
“Harry is a great character and I have no doubt that he will keep working hard every day in training. Everyone can see the impact he has already made, but at just 21 years old there is still more improvement to come; that’s an exciting prospect!”
