Teenage defender extends deal with Young Terriers
- Rarmani Edmonds-Green agrees new contract with Town
- Defender extends stay at the Club until 2019
- Comments from Academy Manager Leigh Bromby
Young centre-back Rarmani Edmonds-Green has extended his future at Huddersfield Town after agreeing a new deal with the Club.
The 19 year-old centre-back has signed a one year contract, securing his future to the Terriers until the summer of 2019.
Huddersfield Town also has the option to extend this new contract into the 2019/20 season.
Rarmani officially joined Huddersfield Town on his 17th birthday, 14 January 2016. He hails from Peckham in London and came to Town’s attention during his time with the Nike Academy.
The Terriers took the centre-back on trial in October 2015 and he impressed in the Under-18s' Professional Development League game at Crewe Alexandra late that month.
During the 2016/17 season, Rarmani was the Club’s Under-18s captain before becoming a key figure in Mark Hudson’s U23 side the following campaign.
During that period, the 19 year-old made 27 appearances for the Young Terriers, scoring on two occasions.
Not only this, but he was one of the stand-out players in the Under-19 Champions Trophy that Town competed in during April 2018, being named ‘Defender of the Tournament’ as Young Terriers finished fourth.
Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager, Leigh Bromby, commented:
“Rarmani has had a good season and made a lot of progress working closely with Mark Hudson, so we are delighted that we are able to extend his deal with the Club.
“There is now a key focus on the ways we can help him develop and we’ll constantly assess what he needs and what will benefit him the most.
“He will be too old for our Under-19s group, so we have to make sure he has clear goals and challenges that he has to overcome; that’s how we will get the best from him.”
