Falkirk youngster Cameron Taylor has joined Huddersfield Town on a scholarship basis, with the defender unable to sign a professional deal until he is over the age of 17.
Taylor of course isn’t the first player to make the move south from Falkirk to Huddersfield with Scott Arfield, Murray Wallace and Kallum Higginbotham all treading the same path before him.
Town’s previous Director of football, Ross Wilson, also was a former Bairn, and some could argue he to date has had the most success, albeit not in a playing capacity.
Taylor will perhaps hope to be more successful than his predecessors with all really failing to establish themselves as first team players at Huddersfield, although Arfield has gone on to prove perhaps that Town were under utilising him starring for Burnley as they won promotion, played in the premier league and then repeated the feat of promotion again last season.
The 6ft 1“ defender was quoted in the Falkirk Herald:
“When the opportunity came to join Huddersfield I was buzzing.
“It is every boy`s dream to be a footballer playing down south. I have that now.
“There is a brilliant set-up at Huddersfield and it doesn`t feel real that I`ve joined them.
“I hope to get in the under-23 squad within six months and be pushing for the first team within a year.”
A warm welcome aboard to Cameron, albeit a while till we perhaps see him featuring at first team level, it is none the less, excellent to see the club with a constant eye on the future.
