Winger joins League 1 side until 24 October 2015 inclusive.

- Joe Lolley joins Scunthorpe United on loan
- Huddersfield Town winger with the Iron until 24 October
- Comments from Manager Chris Powell

Huddersfield Town’s Joe Lolley has today League 1 club Scunthorpe United on an Emergency Loan until Saturday 24 October 2015 inclusive. 
Joe will join up with Manager Mark Robins’ Iron squad – which includes fellow Town loanee centre back Murray Wallace – today (Friday) and he will be available for Saturday’s match at Southend United.
The 23 year-old left footer, who usually plays from the right, has played just 28 minutes of football for Chris Powell’s First Team so far in 2015/16; that came in two substitute appearances against QPR and Nottingham Forest at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Joe joined Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee from Kidderminster Harriers in January 2014, during current Scunthorpe Manager Mark Robins’ tenure in charge at the Club. Joe suffered a number of injuries early in his Town career, but impressed in pre-season and is fit to play. However, he has been unable to force his way into the Town line-up. 
His current contract runs until the summer of 2016, although the Club has the option of a further year’s extension at that point.
To date, he has made four starts and a further 23 substitute appearances for the Club scoring four goals, of which three starts and 15 substitute appearances have come under the management of Chris Powell.
Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell explained:
“I believe it is very important to Joe’s development that he plays regular football at this stage, but that is not something I can currently offer him due to the performances of Sean Scannell, Mustapha Carayol, Harry Bunn and the arrival of Jamie Paterson.
“As a result, the opportunity for Joe to join Scunthorpe for a month is an excellent one. I’m really looking forward to seeing Joe play and perform for Mark Robins’ team.
“It is important that I stress this move is designed purely to get Joe consistent time on the pitch to aid his development. I’ve talked on several occasions about what an exciting talent he is, but equally he has had a few niggling injuries during my time at Huddersfield and it has taken him some time to adjust to full time football after his rapid rise up the football pyramid in 2014. 
“Everyone at the Club is excited about Joe’s future, so hopefully he will excel during his time at Scunthorpe and return to us ready to make an impact on our team in the Championship.”
