Huddersfield sign Lolley

Huddersfield Town have confirmed the signing of striker Joe Lolley on a two-and-a-half year deal from Kidderminster Harriers.

The 21-year-old signed off his career at Kidderminster in style on Tuesday night by providing the winning goal in their FA Cup 3-2 victory against Peterborough United which earnt the Conference side a fourth-round tie with Sunderland.

Lolley left Kidderminster with an impressive record of ten goals in 18 starts which included a hat-trick in their 3-0 home win over Salisbury City last weekend.

And Huddersfield Town's manager Mark Robins believes he has a very exciting player on his hands and said that he has the ability to make an impact immediately.

"He's a promising talent and was highly sought-after, so it is testament to the club that he has chosen to come to Huddersfield Town," Robins told The Huddersfield Daily Examiner.

"Joe can play off the right side of the attack or through the centre as he possesses good pace and ability on the ball, but most importantly he has an eye for goal, as his extraordinary goal scoring record in the lower echelons of English football shows.

"We will be working with Joe as he adapts to the rigours of Championship football and that will take a little time, but we believe we have a very exciting player on our hands.

"It is really important that while Joe can get better and better, he has the ability to make an impact immediately.

"Joe's acquisition fits perfectly with the club's clear ethos of bringing in talented, young, hungry players with lots of long term development in them."
