Huddersfield Town have issued young striker Kian Harratt with a ‘significant fine’ and ordered him to undergo an an educational course after he was found guilty by a court of law with Poaching.

The 20-year-old was fined £830 at the beginning of the month for hare coursing, and subsequently his loan deal at League Two sleeping giants Bradford City was terminated.

In a statement issued by the Terreirs, Harratt is said to have shown remorse for his actions and he must now ‘rebuild his reputation’, in which he will return to the club’s B team to train and play matches with them in the near future.

Harratt has made just one senior appearance for Huddersfield in his career so far, which came in December 2019 against the club’s West Yorkshire rivals Leeds United.

Since then, the youngster has been on loan to several clubs and scored five times in 22 appearances for Port Vale last season and scored in their play-off final victory over Mansfield Town.

Harratt then headed to Bradford at the start of the 2022-23 season, but played just nine times with one goal scored before being sent back to the John Smith’s Stadium.

The Verdict

Harratt in the past has been labelled as a promising talent coming through the ranks at Huddersfield – but this is a setback.

He showed promise at Port Vale last season and he would have been expected to kick on in the current campaign with the Bantams.

But that has not happened and coupled with his off-field goings-on, Harratt has had a bit of a nightmare few months.

He now has to build himself back up in Huddersfield’s B-team in order to potentially get another move away in January, but it wouldn’t be a shock if no clubs come forward to give him that chance either.
