I can’t wait to get going says new Huddersfield Town signing Scott Arfield
May 25 2010 by Dougie Thomson, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
SCOTT ARFIELD signed three-year terms with Town and beamed: “This is the right move at the right time.”
The Scotland Under 21 midfielder will start house-hunting in Huddersfield next week after completing his move from Falkirk.
And he’s looking forward to flying the flag in League I as he aims to boost his international career by shining at club level.
“I was more than impressed by the manager and the stadium,” said the Livingston-born ace who has 14 Under 21 caps and one at Scotland B level.
“I’ve not had chance to meet the rest of the players yet, but I’ve heard they’re a great bunch and I can’t wait for pre-season to come around.
“There’s no other Scots there, but I think I’ll get by, and I think this move will help mature me as a person as well as a player.
“I’m proud to have played for my country, and of course I want more caps, but the only way to do that is to produce at club level, and that’s my intention.”
Arfield had been linked with Scottish sides Hearts, Hibs and Hamilton as well as Town’s League I rivals Southampton.
But he explained: “Talking to Lee Clark made my decision a simple one. I really liked his ambition and what he had to say about moving the club forward.
“I know everyone is disappointed about missing out on promotion this season, but from what I’ve seen on DVD, I believe we have the players to go places.”
Falkirk academy product Arfield has just suffered relegation from the Scottish Premier League with The Bairns, where he was contracted until 2013.
“It was a big blow, and I’ve loved my time there, but I think now is the right moment to move on,” he added.
