Huddersfield Town bolster their recruitment team ahead of summer transfer window

Adam Mahoney has confirmed that he is joining Huddersfield Town as their assistant head of recruitment following his departure from Bristol Rovers.

Mahoney announced that he would be leaving the Gas at the end of April after four years with the League One outfit, and has now opted to join their divisional rivals.

He previously held the role of head of data and analysis at Bristol Rovers, a post that he was promoted to in February after spending his spell at the club in their analysis department.

Mahoney spent five years at Championship outfit Swansea City prior to joining the Gas, where he also held a series of analysis roles.

Confirming his arrival at Town, Mahoney said in a post on X: “Delighted to announce that I will be joining Huddersfield Town as assistant head of recruitment. Looking forward to the challenge ahead.”

It has also been reported that Town are set to add to their scouting department, with Sun journalist Alan Nixon claiming that Blackburn Rovers’ “chief scout Tom Sutton is leaving to take up a similar post” with the Terriers.

Sutton has been with Rovers for the past two years, having previously spent three years as a scout at Oxford United from 2019 to 2022, as well as six years in the same role at Stoke City between 2013 and 2019.

Town are yet to complete their first signing since they were relegated to League One, although sporting director Mark Cartwright has stated that there is set to be “an overhaul” of the playing squad during the close season.
