Huddersfield Town Women are pleased to announce the signing of defender Autumn Housley following a successful trial against Celtic and Fleetwood Town.
The vastly experienced defensive player arrives from Sheffield United ahead of the 2021/2022 season in the FA Women’s National League North.
On joining, Autumn Housley said:
“I’m really excited, they are a nice bunch of girls. They finished top of the league last season and I’m looking forward to getting started and creating a good season this time around.”
“I’ve been at Sheffield United which is a Championship club. So I’m looking forward to getting started here and bringing the experience from there. I think defensively I should bring something special to the team and kick on to the season.”
“I have to make sure I do the best defensive work for the team. The goal for the group is to finish in first place again. Hopefully I will fit straight into the team, it was good to get started and see the playing style in training.”
“I’m a local girl so I’ve been following Huddersfield for a couple of seasons and their success last season was very well documented. So I’ve taken a liking to the club after following the girls very closely.”
