- Under-17s welcome Blackburn Rovers tomorrow
 
Huddersfield Under-17 player Luke Daley says he has noticed significant improvement in his game throughout the season so far.
 
Daley used to be a part of the Academy at Port Vale before moving to Huddersfield Town during the summer to join Town’s Under-17s setup.
 
Daley says he’s been quick to benefit from the difference in structure at Town’s Academy.
 
“I’ve learnt a lot of things.
 
“There’s a lot more coaching staff here so you get a lot more help.
 
“We only trained two times a week at Vale whereas here we train every day, so it’s a lot better because you learn a lot more as you go on each day.”
 
The Under-17s have bonded well as the season goes on, something which the left-back says helps the team on the pitch.
 
“We’re improving well together as a squad because we’ve got to know each other a lot more now.
 
“We’re all on the same wavelength so the game comes a lot more naturally for us all.
 
“I’ve improved a lot too. I feel like my defending is a lot better and is improving in training, so then I go and show that on the pitch during our games.”
 
The youngster says both Jon Worthington and Leigh Bromby have helped him pinpoint his weaknesses so that he can focus on them at home.
 
“They speak to me a lot individually and teach me a lot of new things every day.
 
“I focus a lot on my right foot because that’s my weaker foot, as well as my crosses and my free kicks.
 
“To help with my right foot I have mini goals, so I have to punch the ball into them 10 or so times to help me improve that.
 
Daley and his Under-17 teammates welcome Blackburn Rovers in the Clarets Cup tomorrow, with the 1pm kick-off taking place at PPG Canalside.
 
Supporters can attend, but please note that there's no parking at PPG Canalside!
