Ryan Schofield

The Terriers have a 24 hour recall option on Ryan Schofield.

Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Ryan Schofield has joined AFC Telford on loan until the end of the season.13 May 2018 inclusive.

The Terriers have a 24 hour recall option on the youngster, who was brought into David Wagner’s first team squad at the start of the season.

The England Under-20 international has had previous experience at that level after playing for FC United of Manchester previously.

Head of Goalkeeping at Huddersfield Town, Paul Clements, told the club's official website: “Ryan has done very well this season as part of our First Team squad, but we believe that this is the next phase of his development.

“This is a new challenge for him as it’ll be the first time he has to move away from his home, an experience that could really benefit him in his career.

“I know their Manager Rob (Edwards) and he wants his teams to play out from the back, so that’ll help him get used to doing that for us later in his career.

“You look at all the top English goalkeepers at the minute, like Jordan Pickford, and they’ve all had experiences and loan moves like this, which shows how beneficial they could be.

“It’s important for him now as a young ‘keeper to go out and play proper football, where there’s some expectation on him playing in front of crowds.

“Ryan will still be thought of part of our First Team squad, which is why we’ve included the recall clause, so if we need him he can come back.”
