HUDDERSFIELD TOWN’S final pre-season game brought a 1-0 defeat at Blue Square Premier outfit Fleetwood Town.
Town included senior professionals keeper Ian Bennett, midfielder Jim Goodwin, winger Lee Croft and trialist Bryan Hughes in an otherwise youthful outfit skippered by Liam Ridehalgh.
Town started strongly with Chris Atkinson and Aidan Chippendale impressing, but the home side steadily reversed the trend.
However, the game was only decided four minutes from time when substitute Gareth Seddon struck from a John Miles cross.
Town: Bennett, Goodwin, D’Arcy, Hughes, Pearson, Ridehalgh, Chippendale, Croft, McCaffrey, Birtles, Atkinson. Subs: Porter, Colton, Blakey, Crooks, Melling, Charlton.
