A special night for the Huddersfield Town academy

10 December 2019

Huddersfield Town youngster Matty Daly chose the perfect time to score his first professional goal on Tuesday evening, as the Terriers ran out 1-0 winners over Charlton Athletic in the Sky Bet Championship.

The academy graduate popped up with a 90th-minute winner at The Valley to earn his side a first league victory in six attempts and, in turn, three vital points.

Eighteen-year-old Daly, who has represented England at Under-18 level, was naturally delighted to open his goalscoring account and help Huddersfield return north in high spirits.

"It feels amazing, what a win for the boys," he told club media at the full-time whistle. "I got the goal but the team kept going for 90 minutes, it wasn't just me. It feels great.

"It's everything I've worked for. We've come here, away from home, and we're going home on the bus with three points."

Also speaking after the game, manager Danny Cowley added: "For one of the academy boys to score the winner is perfect. I’m so pleased for him.

"He’s so good technically and we’ve been working on his defensive side very hard with him. He had a chance on Saturday that he pulled just wide on his stronger foot, but tonight he finished superbly on his left!

"I also want to mention Rarmani Edmonds-Green, who made his Championship debut out of position at right-back tonight and was superb. He’s stepped up from his loan at Brighouse Town to Huddersfield Town in under a year, which is remarkable."
