An update on how Town players are performing at their loan clubs
– Roundup of players on loan at Huddersfield Town
– First team and academy players get first team football
– Comments from Head of Goalkeeping Paul Clements
Huddersfield Town currently have 13 players on loan in the 2021/22 season as they look to further their experience of first-team football.
One of the key elements of the Academy’s philosophy and development is to provide young people with different tests and challenges to get them used to playing first-team football.
With that in mind, here’s our loan roundup!
Rarmani Edmonds-Green – Rotherham United
The 23-year-old had become a regular member of the Rotherham backline before picking up a hamstring injury in late January, from which he has now recovered, reclaiming his place.
In the 23 league games Edmonds-Green has played this season, Rotherham has kept 11 clean sheets, with the defender helping himself to a goal and three assists in that span.
Romoney Crichlow–Plymouth Argyle
Much like Kieran Phillips, Crichlow ended his loan spell in January before moving to Plymouth Argyle in January.
After his 18 starts for Swindon Town until January, Crichlow has made two appearances for Plymouth provided they continue their promotion campaign.
Ben Jackson – Doncaster Rovers
The 21-year-old has featured in every Doncaster Rovers league game since his loan spell.
Jackson has played in various positions for Doncaster since joining, starting as a left midfielder and left back for the South Yorkshire club.
Kieran Phillips – City of Exeter
Phillips was recalled from his loan spell at Walsall in January, before moving to Exeter City a few days later.
After scoring four times for Walsall, the young striker’s move to Exeter has seen him score once in his eight appearances for the League Two club so far.
Kian Harratt–Port Vale
After joining the League Two promotion in pursuit of Port Vale in January, Harratt appeared in all but three of Port Vale’s league games, scoring three times.
The strikers’ most recent goals came in a 3-1 win over Mansfield, where Harratt used a brace to help Port Vale claim three points.
Nicholas Bilokapic – Hartlepool United
After making his debut for Town in the FA Cup third round win over Burnley, the Aussie keeper went on loan to League Two Hartlepool.
Bilokapic is yet to make an appearance for his loan side, with Hartlepool having lost just twice in their last 10 League Two games.
Matty Daly – City of Bradford
After an impressive start to the season with League Two side Hartlepool United, Daly moved to Bradford City where he has made nine appearances so far.
Now managed by Mark Hughes, the young midfielder scored for the Bantams in a 1-2 win at Walsall.
Josh Austerfield – Town of Harrogate
Like his Town teammate Diarra, Austerfield is on loan at Harrogate Town in Ligue 2.
Playing time has been limited for Austerfield since his move to Harrogate, with the defender having made six appearances in all competitions so far.
Brahima Diarra – City of Harrogate
The 18-year-old midfielder recently joined Harrogate Town’s first team, missing just five of the last 15 games.
Diarra started in several positions for Harrogate Town, including left and right of midfield, claiming a goal and two assists.
Unfortunately for the youngster, he suffered an ankle injury at Bristol Rovers earlier in the month and will have to undergo surgery to repair the damaged ligaments. He is currently in rehabilitation.
Max Dearnley – Liversedge
The young keeper joined Liversedge on loan during the January window.
Dearnley’s Liversedge currently sits second in the North East Division, with the keeper claiming six clean sheets from a possible eight so far.
Goalkeeping manager Paul Clements commented:
“I want to see Max play against Stockton at the start of March and he did very well in a 0-0 game. He is part of a team that is chasing the league title and given that he suffered an injury in the middle of the season that has delayed his progress, he is catching up on playing time now and performing very well.
Michael Roxburgh – Stocksbridge Park Steels FC
After being loaned out in the same league as fellow Town goalkeeper Max Dearnley, Roxburgh and his Stocksbridge side PSFC sit ninth in the table with 41 points.
A fast fan favourite, Roxburgh has kept three clean sheets and won two man of the match awards so far.
“Michael was taken up a level after Christmas and performed very well. I can only say positive things about the way he performed. As you can see on social media he is making great saves , has great moments, keeps his sheets clean and does very well.
Michael Acquah – Town of Brighouse
After spending the first few months of the season at Emley AFC, Acquah moved to Northern Premier League Division One side Brighouse Town.
He made his debut against Pickering Town on Saturday March 19, 2022, in which Brighouse lost 5-1.
“He was only going to play three games at Emley AFC. The Brighouse keeper was sent off, so he had a three-game suspension, so they inquired about Michael. This is an opportunity for us to take him up a level and see if he can cope with that level.
Sam Peplow – Hyde United
The 19-year-old midfielder joined Hyde United on an initial month-long loan at the end of February.
Peplow has played every league game since joining SK14.
