New Huddersfield Town striker Fraizer Campbell is delighted to sign permanently for his hometown club.
Fraizer, who was born in and grew up in Huddersfield, has returned home to join the Terriers aged 31.
When speaking to #HTTV about his move, he detailed his early memories of living in Kirklees.
“I grew up here. 90% of people I know have been ringing me, talking to me about signing, so it means a lot to me, a lot to my family and friends; it’s a place that’s close to my heart.
“Just driving around Huddersfield, I know places where I’ve played before.
“I remember before the Stadium was there, where there used to be a fairground. My Gran lives the other side of that hill, so we used to walk down and go to the fairground.
“I’ve got a lot of fond memories of Huddersfield.”
Despite playing for Hull City over the last two years, Fraizer has been living in Huddersfield and been able to see how the last three years have changed the Club.
“I’ve never seen so many Huddersfield Town shirts in my whole life!
“The trip to Wembley, getting promotion, the Premier League; it’s done a lot for the town.
“Now the football has surpassed the rugby and it’s fantastic to see for myself. Football is a main attraction of Huddersfield.”
Last season with the Tigers, the 31-year-old bagged 12 goals and set-up six for his teammates, putting in a number of impressive performances in the Sky Bet Championship.
He explained to #HTTV how he feels physically and how the last two years have spurred him on.
“I’ve just been speaking to some of the staff here saying that this is the best I’ve felt physically, condition-side.
“I’ve played a lot of games over the last two seasons, which has helped me a lot. I’ve had a great couple of seasons, worked hard. I’m getting older but I don’t feel it.
“Hopefully this year, I can build on what I’ve already done over the last couple of years and take that into the next two or three seasons.
“I’m a believer that you can always learn something, no matter what your age is, but you have to be willing to do it.
“I’m willing to stay that extra half an hour after training or come in earlier to work on things and develop things, because I’m here to improve myself and help the team. They’ve already got a head start on me, so I’ll be doing all I can to catch up.”
