19-year-old Academy winger to further his senior minutes
- Huddersfield Town Academy winger Olly Dyson on the move
- Winger joins Vanarama National League side Barrow on Work Experience
- Comments from Academy Manager Leigh Bromby
Huddersfield Town Academy player Olly Dyson will gain further minutes in high-level senior football after joining Vanarama National League side Barrow AFC on Work Experience today.
Olly, who turned 19 years old last week, can play either on the wing or in a central attacking role and will now get the chance to showcase his ability in the fifth tier of English football.
Dyson already has experience of men’s football. Five goals in just five games for Liversedge earned him a move up the divisions to Evo-Stik League Premier Division Shaw Lane last season, where he excelled in tier seven.
Now the Normanton native gets a chance two divisions higher with Barrow. Managed by former QPR, Blackpool and Chesterfield centre back Ian Evatt, the Cumbrians sit 12th in the division with 31 points from 24 games and face a trip to Solihull Moors on Saturday.
Dyson has been a regular for Mark Hudson’s age group this season, netting four times in 17 starts and one substitute appearance for the Young Terriers. Two of those goals have come in his last two outings.
Huddersfield Town Academy Manager Leigh Bromby commented:
“We’re all really excited to watch Olly in what is an exciting opportunity for his development as a player.
“This move shows the benefits of Olly being on a longer scholarship, as they give our young players the flexibility to move outside the transfer window and gain vital experience of men’s football.
“Olly showed last season that he could cope with the rigours of the physical test and excel at both Liversedge and Shaw Lane and he’s earned this opportunity to play at a fantastic level with Barrow. I’m looking forward to seeing him in action with them over the next few weeks.”
Another one of Town's young players, Harrison Davison-Hale, has ended his spell at Liversedge to join Ossett United on Work Experience.
