21 year-old goalkeeper joins Wrexham on emergency loan- HTAFC goalkeeper Luke Coddington leaves on loan
- 20 year-old joins Wrexham AFC
- Emergency loan initially until 10 December 2016
Huddersfield Town’s Development Squad goalkeeper Luke Coddington has today joined Wrexham AFC on loan until 10 December 2016.
This is the goalkeeper’s first loan move since joining the Club from his hometown side, Middlesbrough in the summer.
The 21 year-old goalkeeper has made three appearances for Frankie Bunn’s Under-23s this season and regularly trains with David Wagner’s First Team.
Welsh side, Wrexham AFC currently competes in the National League, the fifth tier of English football – three below Huddersfield Town.
Managed by Dean Keates, who was appointed last month, Wrexham sits 14th in the table with 25 points from 19 games; nine points outside of the Play-Off places.
Wrexham needs a ‘keeper after both its senior goalkeepers sustained injuries during their goalless draw with North Ferriby United last weekend.
The paperwork for Luke’s loan has been completed in time for him to be eligible for Wrexham’s league game at home to Braintree tomorrow afternoon.
Lead Academy Goalkeeping Coach at Huddersfield Town, Paul Clements commented:
"This is a great opportunity for Luke to get some game time along with the experience of a big club with a good following and the demands of playing for points in front of a crowd.
“Luke will get the benefits and come back a better goalkeeper for it; which is only good for us.
“Personally from someone who first worked with Luke when he was 12 years-old I am looking forward to watching this next stage of his development.”
