Northern Irish youngster reflects on Liverpool game
- Young Terriers striker Conor Falls settling into life at the Club
- Falls on target again with only goal in Under-19s’ win at Liverpool
- Jon Worthington’s Under-17s continue fight zone work ahead of Blackburn
Huddersfield Town Under-17s striker Conor Falls is happy with how he’s settled into life at the Club since joining ahead of the 2020/21 season!
The Northern Irishman signed for Town as part of the summer 2020 intake and joined up with Jon Worthington’s Under-17s group. He has since gone from strength to strength, taking in the lessons from his coaches to improve his overall play and work rate as part of the team.
He has enjoyed his time in the Terriers jersey so far, scoring past Burton Albion and Blackpool in development matches, putting four past Manchester United, and being on target against Liverpool in his latest outing with the Under-19s.
Following the match at Kirkby on Saturday, Falls spoke to htafc.com about the performance and just how valuable matches against elite opposition are.
“I’m very happy with the performance. I thought we worked really well as a team, did what we were told to do and stuck to the plan, defended as a unit and going forward were fast, and from that we got the win.
“It was great to get on the scoresheet again. I’m always looking to get into those dangerous areas, and on that occasion, it was a great ball in from Luke [Daley] and I got to the back post and we punished them on the counter.
“It’s great to come to places like this and play against big teams, tough opponents. it helps us see where we’re at in the Academy, helps us improve our game with what we’ve been doing in training.”
The Young Terrier also spoke about how the Academy have helped him develop his game in his short time here, as the squad work through different training modules.
“The coaches have been great since I’ve joined. They’ve shown us a lot of support and help, and I can see the steps I’ve made in training and improvements in my game as a striker and as part of the team.
“Hopefully this can continue. If I keep training hard and showing what I can do then I can hopefully keep on moving up the ranks and break into the B Team when I’m ready.”
Conor and his teammates will next face Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday morning, where they’ll look to continue putting what they have learnt in training into practice.
