Huddersfield Town Academy
Huddersfield Town’s Academy has started working closely with Rishworth School to benefit the Club’s first-year scholars.
At the start of the 2020/21 campaign, seven of the Club’s first-year scholars moved into the school’s boarding facilities, 21/22 there are now fourteen scholars living on campus, which will provide them with the best atmosphere and facilities to grow off the pitch.
This allows the youngsters to bond together outside of the Club’s training ground, as well as use the school’s excellent facilities; pitches, swimming pool, gym and more.
Alongside that, the Young Terriers have the chance to mix with and learn from other students at the school.
Some of the youngsters are completing some elements of their education work at Rishworth School.
Huddersfield Town Academy Manager, Emyr Humphreys, commented:
“Going forward, we aim to place greater emphasis on our youngsters continuing their education in parallel to their playing career and not viewing it as a hindrance to their football.
“By accommodating the players at Rishworth School, it gives us greater flexibility in finding the right accommodation for each individual. Some will thrive in the school environment with more social opportunities and facilities to use every day.
“Our ultimate vision is to develop players through the Academy that continue to excel academically, whilst playing in our First Team.”
