20-year-old striker Kieran Phillips made his professional debut for Huddersfield Town against Reading in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday 2 January 2021.

The Young Terrier’s competitive bow for the senior side came when he replaced Rarmani Edmonds-Green as an 87th minute substitute at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Reading was the youngster’s fourth inclusion in Town’s match day squad, having been an unused substitute against Wycombe Wanderers, Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday.

Since his debut, Phillips has played the full 90 minutes against Plymouth Argyle in the Emirates FA Cup, has been an unused substitute against Watford and Luton, and has been subbed on against Millwall, Bristol City and Stoke City.

The striker’s First Team involvement comes off the back of a prolific season for the B Team so far, where he sits as the side’s top goalscorer, having netted seven in eight appearances.

Phillips rejoined the Terriers on loan from Everton in January 2020, before putting pen-to-paper that JulyThe move made Kieran a permanent Town player for the second time; he was a part of Town’s Academy before his goalscoring record saw him move west to join the Toffees at Under-13 level.

The youngster signed a new contract with the Club in September 2020 with a deal that runs until the summer of 2022, with the Club having an option of a further year’s extension.
