Academy striker commits future until 2017
Academy striker Ronan Coughlan has today put pen to paper on a professional contract that has secured his long-term future to Huddersfield Town.
The 18 year-old has penned a contract that runs until the summer of 2017, with the Club having an option on a further year beyond that.
Ronan started his career playing junior football for Mungret Regional in his native Ireland before joining League of Ireland side Limerick FC.
He initially moved to Huddersfield Town in January 2014 and trained with the Under-18 group before his transfer received FIFA international clearance in July.
Subsequently Coughlan has scored four goals in nine appearances for Tony Carss’ Under-18 side so far this season and also netted his first goal at Under-21 level on Monday afternoon in the 3-2 Professional Development League 2 win at Sheffield United (click HERE

Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager Mark Lillis commented:
“Its fantastic news for the Club and for Ronan that he’s committed his future to Huddersfield Town. He was identified via our scouting network and I am really pleased that the Club have now moved quickly to reward him following the fine start he has made to life at Huddersfield Town.
“He’s an exciting talent and he’s performed very well for our teams; both the Under-18s and during his four substitute appearances for the Under-21s.
“However, this contract doesn’t change anything in terms of Ronan’s development. He must continue to put in the hard work day in, day out in training, working with all of the coaches and learning from everyone around him, in order to fulfil his undoubted potential.”
