- Comments from Head of Football Operations Stuart Webber

Huddersfield Town defender William Boyle has today completed a permanent transfer to Sky Bet League 2 club Cheltenham Town.

The 21 year-old moves to Whaddon Road on a free transfer, with Huddersfield Town retaining a sell-on clause for any future moves.

A left-sided centre back, Garforth-based William initially joined Town’s Academy at Under-15 level.

He made his First Team debut for the Terriers as a late substitute in a 3-0 Sky Bet Championship win over Reading at the John Smith’s Stadium in late February 2015; the first of two appearances for Town’s First Team.

He has also gained experience through four spells out on loan at Kidderminster Harriers, Macclesfield Town, York City and most recently Kilmarnock, spending the first half of the 2016/17 season with the Scottish Premiership club.

William now joins The Robins, who sit 23rd in Sky Bet League 2 with 21 points from 24 games. Managed by former Yeovil Town and Bristol City boss Gary Johnson, the Club is just one point away from climbing out of the relegation zone.

Huddersfield Town’s Head of Football Operations Stuart Webber commented:

“This is a great move for William, who now needs to play First Team football on a regular basis at this stage of his career. It’s very similar to when Joe Wright joined Doncaster Rovers and Jack Senior departed for Luton Town.

“Cheltenham Town can offer him this at a good standard and it’d be great to see him excel for them.

“He’s a fantastic character and everyone at the Club wishes him the best of luck for the future.”
