Church extends loan deal

22 November 2012

Striker to stay with Terriers

Simon Church has extended his loan deal with Huddersfield Town until December 31st.

The 23-year-old has made two appearances for the Terriers since joining them earlier this month - and scored his first goal for the club against Bolton this past weekend.

“Simon has proven within just a couple of weeks that he is a top striker and we are delighted that we have secured him until the end of the year," said manager Simon Grayson.

“Our Christmas schedule is very hectic and with both James Vaughan and Jermaine Beckford currently suffering with injuries, he provides depth and strength to our forward line.

“He has demonstrated his versatility since he arrived with his ability to play on both the wing and upfront and we hope that he continues to flourish in a Huddersfield Town shirt.”
Elsewhere, young prospects Lawson D'Ath, Jake Taylor and Michael Hector have also penned new loan deals. 

Lawson, who has already had a loan spell at Cheltenham Town, is recovering from a knee injury but has put pen to paper and will continue his loan deal at the Gloucestershire club.

He'll be joined by Jake, who has signed an emergency loan deal at the Robins - both players will be at the club until the New Year.

Towering defender Hector has signed on loan at Aldershot Town. The 20-year-old previously gained experience away at Shrewsbury Town and Barnet.

Elsewhere, goalkeeper Mikkel Andersen has returned to Reading after a successful loan spell at League One Portsmouth. His 93-day emergency loan period has now ended and is now back in training with Brian McDermott's men. Mikkel tweeted, "Looking forward to my first training back and new challenges!"

Defender Angus MacDonald is outbound though, as he moves on an emergency loan to Torquay United - the club he had a spell at last season.

Meanwhile, fellow striker Gozie Ugwu, on loan at Yeovil, played at the weekend for our under-21s, who drew 0-0 against Everton at Goodison Park, and scholar Jack Jeffrey has joined Banbury United on work experience.
