Dutch defender becomes a Young Terrier
- Town Academy sign Dutch Defender
- Ilounga Pata signs joins Town’s Academy
- 18-year-old defender signs after trial with Club
The Huddersfield Town Academy has completed the signing of 18-year-old defender Ilounga Pata.
Ilounga signs for The Young Terriers after a successful trial period with the Club.
Born in November 2000, the full-back came through the ranks at Dutch Eredivisie side ADO Den Haag before moving to play for Alphense Boys.
The Dutch citizen typically operates as a right-sided defender but has also played on the right-side of midfield previously.
Ilounga played three times for Town’s Under-19s whilst on trial including games at a tournament in Newcastle and in the Young Terriers’ 5-1 win over Leeds United.
The Young Terriers completed the signings of Luke Daley and Kai Herbert this week with preparations well underway for the new season.
