Game to be played on Saturday 23 January at 11am
- Town's U18 side at Hull City on Saturday
- First game of 2016 for Tony Carss' side
Huddersfield Town’s Under-18 side will be in action for the first time in 2016 when it travels to Hull City this weekend in the Professional Development League 2 North.
Tony Carss’ side hasn’t played a league fixture since beating Bolton Wanderers 5-1 on 19 December after the scheduled fixture against Sheffield United last weekend was postponed.
Unbeaten in six league games, the young Terriers will look to continue their fine run of form from before the festive period, which includes the 7-0 mauling of the Tigers in October. Highlights of the game are below on HTTV
Town currently sits sixth in the PDL2 with games in hand over teams above them, whilst this weekend’s opponents are second from bottom. Click HERE for the latest Premier League U18 bulletin with all the tables, results and fixtures.

Saturday’s game will be played at Bishop Burton College, the home of Hull City’s new academy, with kick-off at 11am (Bishop Burton College, York Road, Bishop Burton, HU17 8QG).
