Huddersfield Senior Academy v Middlesbrough. Kick-off time to be confirmed
Our Senior Academy side have progressed through to the Semi Final of the Under 18’s Yorkshire Cup to be played at home against Middlesbrough on Sunday 5th March.
Our Academy side is made up of Under 18’s and Under 17’s so they have done particularly well to reach the semi final against some tough opposition.
A convincing win at home against Sheffield Tigers set up an enticing quarter final against Sandal. The under 18 players remembered the drubbing Sandal gave them in the Under 13’s Yorkshire Cup Final, which added a bit of extra spice to the encounter. In a nail-biting match Huddersfield snatched victory in the final minutes with a try and conversion to win by two points. “Revenge is a dish best served cold”
A few of the under 18 lads are now showing promise in the Falcons Side and there are some exciting under 17’s in the team which promises much for the club.
Let’s give the Senior Academy as much support as possible, the lads deserve it.
