Development Squad striker moves to League 2 club
Huddersfield Town striker Daniel Carr has today completed an Emergency Loan move to League 2 Mansfield Town until 17 November.
The 20 year-old, who joined Town in April 2013 after netting 25 goals as a teenager for non-league Dulwich Hamlet, joins the Stags ahead of their League game against Tranmere Rovers this evening.
Since becoming a Terrier, London-born Carr has made one start for the First Team in a Capital One Cup game at Premier League Hull City in September 2013. He subsequently made a further two substitute appearances for the Club in the Sky Bet Championship, the latest of which came in November 2013.
Daniel scored his first senior professional goal during a loan spell at League 2 Fleetwood Town over the 2013/14 festive period, during which he made one start and a further four substitute appearances.
This term he has netted once in six starts and two substitute appearances for Town’s Under-21 side under Senior Professional Development Coach Frankie Bunn.
Mansfield, managed by Paul Cox, sit 16th in League 2 having accumulate 17 points from the opening 13 games of the campaign.
The Stags need reinforcements in the striking department; injuries to forwards Matt Rhead and Ollie Palmer has left them with two fit strikers at the Club and able to field just five substitutes in this weekend’s goalless draw against Cambridge United.
Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell explained:
“Daniel is at the stage of his development where he needs to experience First Team football and that is not something we can offer him here at the moment, so this loan move is perfect for everyone.
“Mansfield is a good club challenging for promotion in a very competitive League 2 and is an ideal environment for Daniel to go and play in the division. We’ll watch him very closely during his initial month at the Club.
“Hopefully Daniel can showcase his ability and goal-scoring knack for his new club.”
