15+ years of experience at Premier League & Championship clubs
- Lee Maybury joins Huddersfield Town as Head of Recruitment
- New recruit joins after departing role as Chief Scout at Swansea
- Comments from Sporting Director Mark Cartwright
We’re pleased to welcome Lee Maybury to Huddersfield Town as our new Head of Recruitment.
Maybury has started his role at the club this week having served notice on his previous role as Chief Scout at fellow Sky Bet Championship club Swansea City and brings over 15 years of experience in player recruitment at Premier League and Championship clubs.
Prior to his two years in South Wales, Maybury worked as Head Scout for Stoke City for seven years, where he forged a successful working relationship with our Sporting Director Mark Cartwright.
He has also performed similar roles at Burnley and Portsmouth, preceding which he ran successful businesses outside football.
He steps into the vacant position at Town following the departure of Emyr Humphreys last month.
Huddersfield Town’s Sporting Director Mark Cartwright explained:
“We’re delighted that Lee has joined the club from Swansea City this week.
“I’ve seen the quality of his work first-hand from our time working together previously at Stoke City. He’s one of the hardest working people I’ve dealt with in football, and we trust each other’s judgement in terms of what good looks like. That’s vitally important.”
“Lee and I only form part of our recruitment process. We have a real blend of qualitative and quantitative methodology, with our analysis team playing just as important a role. With a mixture of data, video footage and live work, we then present the best fitting players for our club and roles within our team to the Manager.”
