Huddersfield Town are once again on the road on Saturday 12 November, when they travel to Mansfield Town in the Youth Alliance League; 11am kick-off.

The Young Terriers will continue their journey in the Youth Alliance League as they battle it out against Mansfield Town on Saturday 12 November, 11am kick-off, with the game taking place at the RH academy (Woburn Lane, Mansfield, NG19 7RT).

The U19s will look to bounce back from their last game in the U18s Professional Development League game where they lost 5-2 against Peterborough United.

Town’s youngsters are currently sixth in the EFL Youth Alliance League, winning two and losing three out of the last five games.

Supporters can attend the 11am kick-off at the RH Academy on Saturday free of charge.

Our U19 and B Team ‘keeper, Michael Acquah, previewed this game:

Michael started by talking about how he has found the season so far, working with the U19s and the B Team – as well as travelling with the First Team.

“I think the season has been quite good to be honest, playing games at both levels and I have really enjoyed travelling and experiencing football with the First Team.

“Being in and around the First Team is always a really good experience, there’s a lot of young players and obviously there’s B Team players who are in the squad now as well.”

Our ‘keeper then discussed the intensity of the games the squad have faced and how those games help the team develop.

“High intensity games challenge us; they are fast paced and that means we have to work even harder to stay on top.

“They also help us prepare for the next level of football, whether that be B Team football or First Team football in the Championship.”

After recently signing his first professional contract, Acquah described his feelings from that day as well as his goals for the rest of the season.

“It was a really good feeling signing my pro-contract as I didn’t expect it to happen this early.

“I think a big part of it is now knowing that the Club believes in me enough to offer me this in the first place – it’s almost a reward for how I played last season on top of how I’m playing so far this season.

“For this season, my first goal was to get my professional contract and I have already done that, so now it is just to play as many games as I can and get into the B Team properly.

Looking ahead to tomorrow’s game, the Young Terrier touched on what he had been training on with our goalkeeping coaches.

“I worked with Neil Bennett today on high ball and assessing them as well as catching and punching crosses away from danger.

“I was also working with Paul Clements yesterday on blocking with my right foot, so they were my main focuses.”
