Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Ryan Schofield joins Crawley Town on loan

- Ryan Schofield joins Crawley Town on loan
- Goalkeeper to spend rest of 2022/23 season in Sky Bet League Two
- Comments from Leigh Bromby, Mark Fotheringham and Paul Clements

We can confirm that Town goalkeeper Ryan Schofield has today joined Crawley Town on loan for the remainder of the 2022/23 season.

Having spent the first half of the 2022/23 season with Scottish Premiership side Hibernian, the goalkeeper was on the Town bench for our last Sky Bet Championship fixture with Coventry City after being recalled by the Club last week.

Schofield will now link up with Sky Bet League Two side Crawley Town for the remainder of the 2022/23 season in the pursuit of regular first team football, having last played consistently in the 2020/21 Sky Bet Championship season.

Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby commented:

“Having spent the first part of the season with Hibernian regaining his full match fitness and pushing for a place in their side, now is the perfect chance for him to kick on and play some consistent first team football.

“Ryan is a brilliant character and has shown real ability throughout his career. With injury and the arrival of Lee Nicholls keeping him out of our side, recapturing his best form elsewhere in a competitive environment is what’s best for all concerned.”

Head Coach Mark Fotheringham added:

“I haven’t had chance to work with Ryan for long since arriving, but he’s been a pleasure to have in the building of late and everyone at the Club speaks incredibly highly of him.

“It’s important for goalkeepers to play as much football as possible as they develop, so giving Ryan that opportunity is a no brainer. He showed his loyalty to the Club by coming back here and being available straight away on the bench, as we wish him all the best with Crawley.”

Head of Goalkeeping Paul Clements noted:

“As we know, Ryan was promoted to our First Team sooner than anticipated and showed how good his raw ability is in flashes. That 2020/21 season was difficult as a whole for the Club, and since the arrival of Lee Nicholls, the chances for Ryan to play have been limited.

“Now he’s completely recovered from his injuries and has the experience of training with David Marshall up at Hibernian under his belt too, he’s ready to go out and push himself as a starting goalkeeper again and build on a really promising youth career.“We’ll keep a close eye on him here and wish him all the best with Crawley – he’s a top goalkeeper, a true Terrier and I’m looking forward to him showing his best again.”

Good luck, Ryan!
