Huddersfield Town Academy Manager Leigh Bromby spoke of how important it is to see his players progress into the First Team.

Young full-back Demeaco Duhaney has been the first since the re-structure of the Academy to break into the First Team as he made his Town and Premier League debut in the Club’s 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Since joining the Club at the start of the season, Demeaco has continued to impress eventually catching the eye of Town’s First Team Head Coach.

Leigh Bromby explained how the 20-year-old’s progression into the First Team is a huge step for the Academy.

“It’s massive for us as an Academy to support the First Team and for the Head Coach to show that confidence in us and our opinions.

“You can see the Club wants young players in the First Team and wants the Academy, which is the main thing.

“It’s not just the Academy wanting to push our players; it’s a whole Club vision, which I think everyone can see now.

“I think the appointment of Mark Hudson in the First Team has helped with the transition of our players as well. We are delighted.”

Bromby went on to describe how hard his team of staff has been working during the transition and changes in the Academy, so the best possible players can be produced for the First Team.

“The Club really believes in the new system and so do we. Everyone is working hard to provide the First Team with options like Demeaco.”

Town’s Academy Manager went on explain that he and Jan are in constant communication about potential players, who could step up into the First Team fold.

“Jan came to watch another one of our players that is doing really well, Rekeil Pyke, who’s on loan with Rochdale.

“He came last week to watch Rekeil make his debut; things like that are important for the succession of our young players.

“For me, coming to that game, Rochdale on a Tuesday night, speaks volumes really and shows that he wants this to work for the Club.”
