Young Terrier returns to Vanarama National League club
- Ben Jackson to gain First Team experience at Stockport County
- Young Terrier extends Town contract until the summer of 2022
- Comments from Academy Manager Leigh Bromby
Huddersfield Town youngster Ben Jackson has signed a new deal with the Club and re-joined Stockport County on loan for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign.
Ben has signed a new deal with the Terriers that will run until 30 June 2022, with Town having an option to extend it by a further year, and will now re-join Stockport County.
The 18-year-old was recalled from his loan spell at the Vanarama National League club at the beginning of December and was subsequently named as part of Danny Cowley’s First Team squad.
Prior to his early return to the Terriers, the versatile Jackson impressed and made 18 appearances for Stockport.
He will now re-join the Hatters on loan for the rest of the 2019/20 campaign to continue his development.
Jim Gannon’s side currently sit fifth in the Vanarama National League table with 45 points from 29 games, seven points behind league leaders Barrow.
‘Jacko’ typically operates on the left side of the team, comfortable in both the full-back and left-side of midfield positions.
Huddersfield Town Academy Manager Leigh Bromby commented:
“Ben showed good progress during his first spell at Stockport County and we are pleased he is able to continue his development there.
“He came back to us as an option for Danny Cowley due to unavailability in the First Team and now he has the chance to gain further experience of playing men’s football regularly.
“Ben is an exciting prospect at Town’s Academy, so we are delighted that he’s signed a new deal. The aim for him is to keep up his hard-work and we feel his return to Stockport will help him progress further.”
