Huddersfield Town enjoyed a winning start to their pre-season campaign ahead of the 2021-2022 season, edging past West Yorkshire rivals Harrogate Town 1-0 at Canalside.
Carlos Corberan’s side were understandably rusty in their first outing in over 2 months, but put in a solid display nonetheless and can take a handful of positives out of the encounter.
Here are three Huddersfield Town players who caught the eye on Saturday afternoon.
Part of the first half Xl, forgotten man Reece Brown put in a fine 45-minute showing, as he bids to finally make his first-team breakthrough with the Terriers.
A man running out of time, this campaign could be Brown’s last bite of the cherry in West Yorkshire, but in spite of the suspected pressure, the 25-year-old looked comfortable on Saturday and didn’t put a foot wrong.
Brown held his own in the first half under the watchful eyes of Carlos Corberan and has only boosted his chances of making a breakthrough in the Terriers first team. A fine day all told for Reece Brown.
The star man last season, it didn’t take Josh Koroma long to get off the mark in pre season, with the 22-year-old scoring the game’s only goal in the first half.
After making his breakthrough in the first team last season, Koroma will see this campaign as one to improve once again, as the former Leyton Orient man has very quickly established himself at the top of the Terriers hierarchy.
The goal is an undoubted reminder of Koroma’s pedigree and an early indicator of what’s to come. If Koroma can keep injuries at bay you can surely expect the 22-year-old to easily reach double figures in the score charts this campaign.
One of 10 changes made at halftime, Chelsea loanee Levi Colwill didn’t disappoint on his first showing in a Huddersfield Town shirt.
Huddersfield Town have been dealt with the responsibly of nurturing the highly regarded 18-year-old from giants Chelsea and his first showing showed why loan could benefit all parties.
Colwill looked accomplished in the second half, far beyond his young age and looked at ease with Carlos Corberan’s possession based football, which places an emphasis on playing out from the back. Levi Colwill really could be one to watch in the Championship this season.
