Town Academy youngsters set for Lilleshall Training Camp
- Both Town’s U23 and U18 sides will take part in a training camp in Lilleshall
- Week long training camp for Town youngsters
- Academy Manager Steve Weaver explains why this camp is so important
Huddersfield Town’s Under-23s and Under-18s sides will begin preparations for their respective Professional Development League campaigns during a training camp in Lilleshall.
Similarly to the 2016/17 season, Town’s youngsters will travel to Lilleshall, Shropshire for a training camp between Monday 17 July 2017 and Friday 21 July 2017.
The young Terriers will undergo five days of intensive training and tactical work at the National Sports Centre, which used to be used as a training camp by the England national side.
The training sessions will be led by Senior Professional Development Coach Frankie Bunn who manages Town’s Under-23s side and by Professional Development Coach Leigh Bromby who helps develop the Club’s Under-18s.
Just a day after the completion of the training camp, Bunn’s Under-23 side will face Curzon Ashton in its first pre-season friendly ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
Whilst, Leigh Bromby’s youngsters will return to action five days later when they take on Wrexham AFC away from home.
Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager Steve Weaver commented:
“Taking our young players on a training camp to Lilleshall will benefit us in a number of way come the start of the season.
“Ever since I’ve been at the Club a number of our Under-18 players have gone onto play for the Under-23s, so it’s great to give them the experience of training with Frankie (Bunn) and the rest of the U23s team.
“The training camp also allows us to have a week of intense training as a group together; as a whole, this will make us more organised and prepare us well for the new season.
“I truly believe that a successive training camp at Lilleshall will set good, solid foundations for the start of the respective PDL campaigns and obviously the youngsters’ own personal development.”
