Both the Huddersfield Town Academy sides are in action this weekend with Leigh Bromby’s Under-18 side kicking off the action on Saturday morning.

Town’s Under-18s will visit Yorkshire rivals Barnsley for a game at Barnsley’s Training Complex in an 11am kick off. Lead by Martin Devaney, the Tykes currently sit second bottom of the U18 Professional Development North Division, one place above Crewe Alexandra. Devaney’s side will be looking to build on the 3-1 victory they recorded over Hull City in their first game of 2018.

Leigh Bromby’s side sit second place in the PDL North Division and will be looking to bounce back from the 4-0 defeat they suffered at the hands of Birmingham City in their first game of 2018 last weekend.

Mark Hudson will take his Under-23 side for his first official game as U23s Coach with Hull City the visitors at PPG Canalside on Sunday at 11.30am.

Sunday’s clash will be the Under-23s first game in just shy of a month, with their last game ending in a 1-0 win over Crewe Alexandra with midfielder Lewis O’Brien on target for the Terriers. Hudson’s side sit ninth place in the PDL table having racked up 16 points from their opening 15 games of the campaign.

Hull City sit in fifth place in the table on 23 points; four places above the Terriers. Lead by Jon Beale, his side were last in action on Thursday with the clash against Town’s West Yorkshire rivals, Leeds United ending in a 4-3 defeat.

Supporters can come and watch the Under-23s game at PPG Canalside on Sunday for just £1; with a team sheet included for the cost of entry. If you can’t make the game, then you can follow updates on both games over the weekend via Town’s dedicated Academy Twitter account @htafcacademy.

Leigh Bromby & Mark Hudson both spoke to #HTTV this week following the announcement of their new roles within the Academy setup.
