- Comments from Academy Manager Leigh Bromby
Young winger Dom Tear has extended his future at Huddersfield Town after agreeing a new deal with the Club.
Dom, who was named as Town’s Academy Player of the Year at the end of the 2017/18 campaign, has signed a one year contract, securing his future with the Terriers until the summer of 2019.
Huddersfield Town also has the option to extend this new contract into the 2019/20 season.
Based in Knaresborough, Dom initially joined Huddersfield Town as an Under-14 player, having previously played for Harrogate Railway.
During the 2016/17 season, the 18 year-old impressed for Town’s Under-18s side and also broke into the Under-23s.
Dom was a key player for Mark Hudson’s Under-23s side last season scoring five goals in 25 appearances, whilst also creating a number of opportunities for his teammates.
Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager, Leigh Bromby, commented:
“Dom had an excellent season with us during the 2017/18 campaign as you could see from him being named our Academy Player of the Year, so we are delighted that he has agreed a new deal with us.
“Over the course of the season you could see the vast amount of progress he made, especially under the guidance of Mark Hudson, and we want that to continue into the new campaign.
“We now have a key focus on furthering his development by offering him different challenges alongside playing in a bespoke games programme, so we can get the best out of him as well as see him grow further as a player.”
