Former Solihull Moors striker Kyle Hudlin has signed a new contract with Championship side Huddersfield Town, as confirmed via a statement on the club’s website.
The 23-year-old arrived at Huddersfield’s ‘B’ team last summer, following his successful spell with Solihull Moors, in which he almost helped to take the club into the football league.
Who is Kyle Hudlin?
The striker joined Solihull Moors in 2020, spending two years with the club. In that time, Hudlin scored 15 goals in 62 appearances (excluding FA Trophy), including a goal in the National League play-off final.
However, that was his last game for the club before making the switch to Huddersfield Town, before being immediately loaned out to AFC Wimbledon, although that deal was terminated after six months.
A bright start to the season
Solihull Moors kicked off their 2023/24 National League season under new management, following the arrival of Andy Whing. They began with a 1-1 draw against a strong Eastleigh side, before beating both Ebbsfleet United and Boreham Wood.
At the time of writing, Solihull Moors sit third in the National League, level on points with Barnet. The club will host Dorking Wanderers this weekend in a bid to continue their 100% record.
What’s been said?
Upon signing a new contract with the Championship side, manager Neil Warnock stated…
“Kyle has been working really hard, so we gave him a chance in pre-season down in Cornwall and Devon and he impressed us.
“All he needs to do is carry on working as hard as he possibly can and taking his chances. He’s a good lad and I’m pleased for him that he’s signed this new deal.”
As someone that’s watched Kyle Hudlin play for Solihull Moors, I have to admit that I’m pleasantly surprised that he’s making an impression in the Championship.
He can be a handful but after his AFC Wimbledon spell, I did question whether he could make his mark in the Championship it appears as though he’s done enough to convince the experienced Neil Warnock and I’m intrigued to see how he fairs this season.
