Jon Worthington’s Under-17s will be working on playing through the midfield when they take on Doncaster Rovers on Saturday 25 January 2020.
As games for the Under-17s’ continue to come thick and fast, they’re currently working on a six-week block of playing on the pitch, which they’ll continue to put into practice when they welcome Doncaster Rovers to PPG Canalside on Saturday.
Huddersfield Town’s Academy Apprentice George Danaher commented on what the Under-17s’ are gaining from this block of training.
“The theme for this block of training is ‘create’, so we’re playing through the midfield to try and create goal scoring opportunities.
“We’ve designed a lot of training practices that are about trying to get the midfielders on the ball in effective positions to try and score some goals.
“There’s been a lot of work on midfield players receiving the ball to play forward, so there’s been emphasis on the body shape, the first touch and then the strikers’ movement to try and get in behind.”
Danaher also spoke about how the youngsters play has improved since this new block of training came into play.
“Overall the lads have done really well with it.
“They’ve taken all the information on board and gone out and practiced by themselves on what they’ve got to do to create those chances and get the better of teams.”
The game will kick-off at 11am at PPG Canalside on Saturday 25 January 2020 and supporters are welcome to attend.
Please note there's no parking available at PPG Canalside!
