Can’t make it to watch Town’s First Team at Blackburn Rovers this weekend? Why not come down and cheer on Tony Carss’ Under-18 side in a Yorkshire derby against Sheffield United instead!

The young Terriers host the Blades at Town’s PPG Canalside training complex (509 Leeds Road, Huddersfield, HD2 1YJ) in an 11am Professional Development League kick-off.

The game is entirely free to watch, with the pitch located at the back of the facility over the canal.

There’s even breakfast on offer, with the PPG Canalside kitchen open from 9am and serving breakfast butties such as bacon, sausage or both!

Lead Professional Development Coach Carss’ young scholars come into the game on the back of a narrow 3-2 defeat at Nottingham Forest last weekend, highlights of that game are below courtesy of HTTV.



Town sits sixth in the 10-team northern table after that result, with 22 points from the first 15 games of the season.

Saturday’s opponent, led by former Sheffield Wednesday and United defender Derek Geary, sits top of the league, eight points above Town having played a game fewer.

As always, the top two sides from the northern table will qualify for the end-of-season Professional Development League Play-Offs against the equivalent southern table sides to crown the overall U18 PDL champion.

Town’s official Twitter account, @htafcdotcom, will bring you the team news and goal updates on the morning.
