Young Terriers heading to Armagh for four days in July 2022
- Town B to travel to Northern Ireland next month
- Young Terriers to use Loughgall FC’s training facilities
- Four-day pre-season trip between 25-28 July
Huddersfield Town’s B Team will travel to Northern Ireland in July 2022 as part of their preparations for the 2022/23 season!
On top of scheduled work at our Canalside training ground and several friendly fixtures – more of which are to be announced in due course – our Young Terriers will travel to Armagh for four days.
An ideal opportunity to integrate new B Team players into the existing set up, the team will be based in Armagh and use the training facilities of Academy partner club Loughgall FC.
Formed in August 2021, the partnership has already seen Loughgall visit Canalside on several occasions, most recently in April 2022.
Last week, our partner club @LoughgallFC came to visit! 🤗— HTAFC Academy (@htafcacademy) April 28, 2022

A key part of the partnership is knowledge sharing between coaches and support staff, and so during the return visit next month, Town’s Academy staff will be on hand to run some coaching sessions with Loughgall’s youth players.
The B Team will take part in two friendlies whilst over in Northern Ireland, putting them to the test in two tough, physical games.
Monday 25 July will see them take on hosts Loughgall in a 7.30pm kick-off, before they take on Coleraine FC on Wednesday 27 July 2022.
Further details in regard to supporter attendance for both fixtures will be announced in due course.
