Teenage goalkeeper Lloyd Allinson has signed a one-year contract with Huddersfield Town.

The 18-year-old, who completed his two-year Apprenticeship at the Club, has put pen to paper on the deal offered to him by Manager Simon Grayson earlier this summer.

Grayson told the Club’s official website: “Lloyd has done well when he’s trained with the first team and we think he has a good future in front of him. We’re delighted that he’s signed, but the hard work starts again for him now.”

“We’ll see how he goes and the intention is to play him in development games that we’ll have organised, but there’s nothing better than senior league football for these lads – they learn quickly as the games mean something.”

Allinson spent part of last season on loan at Ilkeston Town and was named an unused substitute for the Terriers once last term.

Grayson continued: “Lloyd’s loan at Ilkeston last season was great for him and we might look to do the same again, just as we might do for one or two of the other younger players here.”
