IRON MAKE LOLLEY LOAN MOVE

25 September 2015

United have swooped to sign Huddersfield Town midfielder Joe Lolley on a one-month loan.

His stay with the Iron expires after the October 24 away clash at Chesterfield, and he will wear the No 17 shirt.

The Terriers, then managed by Mark Robins, completed the signing of Lolley from Kidderminster Harriers for an undisclosed fee in January 2014.

A relative latecomer to professional football, Redditch-born Joe was at Birmingham City’s Academy until the age of 16. He subsequently joined Bromsgrove, but it was at Midland Combination side Littleton where he made waves – netting an amazing 88 goals in just 83 games.

Joe combined his senior playing career at Littleton with his studies, reading a Sports Coaching degree at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston.

It was through University football that his link to Kidderminster was formed. He spent the summer of 2013 representing England and Great Britain at the World University Summer Games in Russia, reaching the final before defeat to Russia. On the GB University coaching staff was former Cheltenham striker Steve Guinan, who also coached for the Harriers.

After a promising two week trial in the summer of 2013, which included a hat-trick on his debut against Chasetown, Joe signed a one year contract with a further year’s option at Kidderminster.

A right-sided attacker, Joe netted 11 goals in 19 starts and a further six substitute appearances during his debut season with the Harriers before joining his present parent club.

He has made 26 appearances in all competitions since joining Huddersfield, scoring four goals.
