Date of birth
Huddersfield Town completed the signing of Joe Lolley from Skrill Premier club Kidderminster Harriers for an undisclosed fee in January 2014.
The 24 year-old signed a contract until the summer of 2016, with the Club having an option on a further year.
A right-sided attacker, Joe netted 11 goals in 19 starts and a further six substitute appearances during his debut season with Kidderminster.
A relative latecomer to professional football, Redditch-born Joe was at Birmingham City’s Academy until the age of 16. He subsequently joined Bromsgrove, but it was at Midland Combination side Littleton where he made waves – netting an amazing 88 goals in just 83 games.
Joe combined his senior playing career at Littleton with his studies, reading a Sports Coaching degree at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston.
It was through University football that his link to Kidderminster was formed. He spent the summer of 2013 representing England and Great Britain at the World University Summer Games in Russia, reaching the final before defeat to Russia. On the GB University coaching staff was former Cheltenham striker Steve Guinan, who also coached for the Harriers.
After a promising two week trial in the summer of 2013, which included a hat-trick on his debut against Chasetown, Joe signed a one year contract with a further year’s option at Kidderminster.
Mainly featuring from the bench during the 2013/14 season, Joe looked lively for the Terriers and ended the season on a high, scoring in the 4-1 victory over Watford.
His 2014/15 was punctuated by injury, but Town fans saw enough to make Joe a fans' favourite with his direct, exciting style.
