Huddersfield Town completed the signing of 18-year-old Australian goalkeeper Jacob Chapman in January 2019.

Jacob joined the Club as a free agent after impressing during an extended trial period with the Academy, signing a contract that runs until June 2020.

Born in Wahroonga, Australia, Jacob’s football career took off as a 12-year-old when he was selected for the Football Federation Australia’s ‘Talented Player Pathway’; a programme of the New South Wales Football Institute.

He received the Hill Sports High School Senior Football Award in 2017 and, more recently, he played youth and senior football for Sydney United 58 FC before moving across the NSW National Premier League to join Marconi Stallions.

Chapman travelled to England in November 2018 to try and earn a professional contract, initially joining Town on trial in December 2018.
