Further pre-season dates have today been confirmed for Huddersfield Town’s Young Terriers.

A Town Academy side, consisting of players from the Club’s Under-17s and Under-19s, will take part in a pre-season tournament organised by Brighouse Town between Friday 20 July and Saturday 21 July.

Competing alongside Town in the tournament are the senior sides from Brighouse Town (Evo-Stik Northern Premier League), Liversedge (Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division) and Hemel Hempstead (Vanarama National League South).

The Young Terriers’ first game of the competition will be against Liversedge at the non-league side’s Clayborn Stadium (WF15 8DA) on the Friday at 7.45pm. Whilst, Brighouse Town take on Hemel Hempstead at the Club’s Yorkshire Payments Stadium (HD6 2PL) at the same time.

On Saturday 21 July 2018 the teams that lose on the Friday night will play each other at 12 noon at the Yorkshire Payments Stadium, before the two winning sides will meet at 3pm also at the Yorkshire Payments Stadium.

With the matches taking place in close proximity, the games will contain three 30-minute periods, with roll on roll off substitutes. If the scores are level after 90 minutes, then the matches will be decided by penalties.

Following the tournament and later in pre-season on Tuesday 31 July, a Town Academy side will then face Pontefract Collieries.

The match against the Toolstation Northern Counties East Football League Premier Division Champions (ninth tier of English football) will take place at Pontefract’s Beechnut Lane Ground (WF8 4QA).

Following promotion, the Club managed by Craig Perry, will now compete in the eighth tier of English football (Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One).
