Youngster speaks ahead of B Team game against Rochdale

Huddersfield Town Under-19s midfielder is pleased with how he’s improved since joining Town’s Academy in October 2020.

The youngster signed for Town from French Ligue 1 side Angers SCO and has since linked up with Jon Worthington’s Under-19 side.

Camara joins fellow French Young Terriers Loick Ayina and Brahima Diarra, who he admits have helped him settle in since arriving in Huddersfield.

“Moving away from home is new for me. When I played in France before I got to go home every week, whereas now I can’t do that.

“It really helps having Loick and Brahima here. When I don’t understand they can help me.”

The 17-year-old has had to adapt to a new playing style as part of Town’s Academy, something which has already helped him see improvements in his game.

“When I first came it was hard physically because I’m not used to the same type of style in France.

“There’s a lot more running here, so now I can play 90 minutes, whereas before I couldn’t.

“I’m much faster now, I’m stronger and I’m more confident. I’m still working on my speed though!”

The youngster has made an instant impression at Town, seeing himself play regularly for the B Team.

“I like playing with the older players because it helps me prepare for when I get to play in the Championship. I know that the Championship is very physical.

“It can be hard playing for the Under-19s and B Team sometimes because we don’t have a league, so we don’t really play in any competitions.

“However, it’s also good because we play against men, which helps me get stronger.

“It also helps me prepare for playing with the First Team.”

The B Team are back in action on Wednesday afternoon, when they host Rochdale. You can follow live match updates on Town’s official Academy Twitter; @htafcacademy.
