Shakers snatch attacker Bunn

Huddersfield Town’s Harry Bunn signs a three-year deal at Gigg Lane

4 August 2017

The Shakers have managed to secure the services of Harry ahead of several Championship and League One clubs. The 24-year-old Oldham born winger will link up with the Shakers ahead of the opening game of the season with Walsall on Saturday.

Harry Bunn joined Huddersfield Town in 2013, joining the Terriers on emergency loan from Manchester City before he subsequently joined permanently in January 2014. He went on to make his Town debut against Blackburn in March 2014 after impressing in the under-21 Development squad, before becoming a regular in the first team.

Harry had been at Manchester City for over a decade, progressing through the Club’s Academy before turning professional and is no stranger to Carrington having trained there during his Manchester City days.

A key player for Huddersfield Town in recent seasons and during their promotion to the Premier League, he made 88 appearances for them in the last three years, scoring 17 goals.

Harry Bunn is no recent stranger to Gigg Lane after playing for Huddersfield in the recent pre-season game, in which he was influential in their 3-1 win.

Speaking of his latest signing, manager Lee Clark said:

“I’m absolutely delighted, we tried very early in the summer to get him, but then when we played Huddersfield here at Gigg Lane, I had a good long conversation with David Wagner about Harry’s availability.

There was a brief moment where we thought we wouldn’t get this one done, especially when we heard the calibre of the clubs that were in for him. Clubs in the Championship and other clubs in our own division, but we have persevered with it.

The Chairman and I have worked extremely hard over the last 48 hours to get it done and we are naturally delighted to have got it over the line. Harry is a proven Cham0pionship footballer and he will be a huge asset for us in League One.

He can play as a striker and he can play on the left wing coming in off the line, as we saw in the friendly game last month. He is a maker of goals and a taker of goals.

I also have to thank Huddersfield Town for their co-operation with this one, especially David Wagner, David Moss and the Chairman Dean Hoyle.”

Harry will take squad number 33 for the new season.
