Winger commits future to Town until at least 2025
- Pat Jones signs a new contract with Huddersfield Town
- Agreements runs until June 2025 with a club option year
- B Team winger is a Wales Under-21 international
We’re delighted to announce that Wales Under-21 international winger Pat Jones has signed a new long-term contract with Huddersfield Town!
Pat, who turned 19 earlier this month, has signed a contract that runs until 30 June 2025, with the Club having the option of extending into the 2025/26 season.
This is the latest landmark in Jones’ remarkable upwards trajectory, which started in Welsh non-league with Ruthin Town and Bala Town just over five years’ ago.
He initially joined Wrexham’s Academy before being spotted by Town and moving to West Yorkshire in September 2019. Pat quickly signed his first professional contract less than a year later and went on to make his senior debut for the Club in the Emirates FA Cup tie against Plymouth Argyle in January 2021.
Jones’ Sky Bet Championship debut soon followed, coming on as a substitute in our game at Watford in the same month, and he was soon named our Academy Player of the Year at the conclusion of the 2020/21 campaign.
The start of Pat’s 2021/22 season was hampered by injury, but he returned to finish the year strongly, earning his first two caps for the Wales Under-21 side in June 2022.
Away from the pitch, Pat represents the Club as a ‘Terriers Together’ ambassador for the Club, promoting our work in Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion.
Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby commented:
“It’s great news that Pat has committed his future to the Club for the long term, as he is a player with great ability and high potential.
“He’s only 19 and will certainly improve, but Pat’s direct style of play is already one that fans will enjoy watching. He’s an intelligent lad and combines that with some top-quality athleticism.
“He’s already had a taste of Championship football, and now his challenge is to force his way into Carlos’ squad more permanently. He’s trained extensively with the First Team, most recently during the period surrounding the Play-Offs, and now we want him to hit the ground running in pre-season.”
