Highly-rated Huddersfield Youngster Jordan Williams Signs First Professional Contract 

share on:

Highly-rated youngster Jordan Williams has signed his first professional contract with Huddersfield Town.

The England youth team player is tied down until 2019.

And Huddersfield Town, who signed him at the age of nine, have the option of adding a further year at that point.

Williams, a right-back or occasional centre-back from Meltham, is still a first-year scholar.

But he has featured regularly in Frankie Bunn’s Town Under 23 team.

He helped Bunn’s charges win last season’s Professional Development League title, when it was an Under 21 competition.

Williams featured at first-team level during pre-season, when he went on the trip to Austria.

And in September, he earned his first England caps at Under 18 level in a three-team tournament.

Town academy manager Steve Weaver said: “If you show potential and development in your game, you will get the opportunity to progress at Huddersfield Town.

“Jordan has shown both, so he fully deserves this first professional contract. Congratulations to him and his family.

“Equally, Jordan is a sensible lad and he knows he must keep his feet on the floor and maintain his hard work day in and day out.

“He’s had some great exposure to our first team already, travelling with David Wagner’s squad to Austria during pre-season.

“That showed him the level that he must aspire to.

“We’ll keep working hard with him to give him every chance.”
