Jaheim Headley

Huddersfield Town left back Jaheim Headley has made his first appearance for his parent club since the end of his loan spell at Huish Park

Headley, who arrived on a ‘short term’ deal just before Christmas was named in a Huddersfield B side who took on Salford on Wednesday

The Terriers noted that his initial spell was due to run until January 15th but he was not included in either squads for the Southend or Needham Market games.

Headley started the FA Trophy game against Woking before being an unused sub against Torquay on Boxing Day as well as for the FA Cup against Bournemouth.

Whilst his return was never confirmed, I think it’s fair to say his short stint in Somerset is over.

Thanks for the assist for Adi Yussuf’s equaliser against Woking, Jaheim.

Yeovil Town have announced the signing of 20-year-old Jaheim Headley on a “short-term loan” from Championship side Huddersfield Town.

The left-sided player has spent time on loan at Hyde United and Bradford Park Avenue, but this will be his first loan spell since the 2019/20 season.

With Morgan Williams absent until Boxing Day, Jack Robinson not expected until next month, and  just “10 or 11”  players training this week, Darren Sarll said he needed to add to his “drastically short” squad before today’s FA Trophy tie with Woking.

This article on the Huddersfield Town website from March 2020 focused on the youngster. “He arrived to begin his two-year scholarship as a midfielder, and he has enjoyed a lot of game-time on the wing and in the centre of midfield. However, it is as a left back that Jaheim has found his home, where his power and direct style are assets both in defence and attack.”
