Young Terriers out on loan to gain regular First Team football
- Rarmani Edmonds-Green and Ryan Schofield making further steps in senior football
- First taste of men’s football for several Young Terriers
- Comments from Academy Manager Leigh Bromby
A number of Huddersfield Town’s Academy players and Academy graduates have gone out on loan or work experience to further their development.
This is a key part of the Academy’s philosophy to give youngsters different tests and challenges to get them used to the rigours of the First Team.
Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager Leigh Bromby said:
“It’s fantastic that we’ve got a number of different Academy players out at other clubs throughout the football pyramid.
“We carefully select these moves for the young lads to help different elements of their game, whether that be looking at their physicality, getting them to battle for a First Team spot or giving them the experience of moving away from home.
“The loans have proved to be very valuable for the youngsters, which you will see below, as they progress up the football pyramid.”
