Picture: Frank Worthington
Huddersfield Town is a club with a rollercoaster ride up and down the divisions, currently “camping” in the 2nd tier, after a swift return to the top flight a few seasons ago, over the years a number of players have been in both camps, of course remembering Frank Worthington, but today you have Richard Stearman in their squad and last season other players such as Andy King and Danny Simpson were up at John Smith’s playing.
Ben Chilwell spend a few months on loan with The Terriers, going back to that 2015/16 season, later Ben Hamer also joined. Ian Banks is a midfielder that played for both clubs in the 80’s, a midfielder signed up by Huddersfield Town from Leicester City.
Forwards Danny Cadamarteri and Iwan Roberts are two forwards that have a past in both camps, Cadamarteri had two spells with Huddersfield, added up a total of 70 league games and scoring 8 goals.
Neil Danns is a more recent appearance as he went on loan from Leicester City to Huddersfield Town, playing at John Smith’s in 2012/13, 17 league games and 2 goals. Damien Delaney another also spending time on loan from Leicester City.
Danny Drinkwater spent a period on loan at Huddersfield Town while at Manchester United, later making a great breakthrough at Leicester City and from there becoming an expensive £30million signing moving to Chelsea, so clearly being a Terrier, could end on the upper shelf in football.
Frank Sinclair is also a former Terrier as he played for Huddersfield Town from 2006 to 08, adding up a total of 42 league appearances before moving to Lincoln City.
One of Leicester City’s heroes from the late 1920’s, Ernie Hine, also moved to Huddersfield Town from his time at Filbert Street, playing a season, before moving further on to Manchester United.
This pretty much adds up the players we found in our search, so the Huddersfield Town connection is a good one, but not that many players and of course seeing names such as Frank Worthington, Ben Chilwell and Danny Drinkwater among those are fascinating.
