Young Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Ryan Schofield has been recognised by the LFE (League Football Education) for his achievements both on and off the field.
Ryan has been named in the LFE’s ‘The 11’ for February 2018, which acknowledges the football and academic progression of Under-18 players at current or former EFL clubs. Not only this but it is also designed to assess other factors including in community or charity-based initiatives.
The England Under-20 international has earnt a wealth of experience during the 2017/18 season, starting for Town’s Under-23s on 11 occasions as well as being involved with David Wagner’s First Team. Not only this but Ryan has also spent a brief loan spell for AFC Telford and featured heavily in the England youth set-up.
Unfortunately, the 18 year-old goalkeeper is currently out of action after suffering an elbow injury in training; he has recently undergone surgery and is working his way back to fitness.
LFE Regional Officer Pat Lally commented:
“Ryan has done very well this season as part of the First Team squad at Huddersfield Town.
“In the classroom, he continues to work towards the completion of his BTEC in Sport and aims to secure good grades before entering the final year of his current professional contract.”
