We’re delighted to share that A2 student Donnell Garrick has signed for Huddersfield Town Under-19s Football Club following the successful completion of his trial period.

This is both an incredible achievement and opportunity for Donnell, who was scouted for the club whilst playing in the FA Youth Cup for semi-professional team, Emley AFC.

Donnell currently studies A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Physical Education at Greenhead College and, until his signing, was an integral member of the Greenhead College Football Team. Whilst he is now ineligible to play for the College, he still supports the team every Wednesday.

Head of Academy Recruitment Lee Mellor commented: “Donnell has applied himself very well during his trial period with us and has earned this longer opportunity with us. He’s clearly got talent, but now the hard work with our coaches begins for him daily!

Following the completion of his A Levels in the summer, Donnell will then sign a one-year professional contract with the club.

Congratulations, Donnell, on your remarkable success. We are excited to see where your football career takes you.
