YORK City loanee Luke Daley is raring to go after completing his short-term loan deal from Huddersfield Town on Friday afternoon.

Daley joins York from Sky Bet Championship outfit Huddersfield Town after a consistent role in the club’s B team, having also enjoyed a loan spell in the Vanarama National League with Gateshead last season.

The young left-back is available for selection for Neal Ardley’s side for today’s trip to Maidenhead (3pm), with Daley keen to make an impression.

“It was good, I’ve not met all of the lads as the majority of the first-team are off on a second day recovery, but it’s been good so far,” Daley told club media.

“I didn’t know anyone, Scott Burgess is from Warrington which I just found out, so similar ends to me.

“I’ve only found out in the last day or so that I was definitely going, but I heard of the interest about a month or two ago.

“I’ve heard a lot of good things about the gaffer and Coxy (Neil Cox, assistant manager) as well, I’ve not met the manager yet but hopefully I get to meet him tomorrow.

“I was at a team called Crossfields for Sunday League from when I was about four or five, then I moved to Port Vale at about six or seven.

“I was there for ten years before Huddersfield picked me up from there at 16. I’ve been at Huddersfield ever since.

“I’ve improved a lot as a player, they’ve got a good set-up and have changed to just a B team and the 19’s to get rid of the academy.

“The process of the academy is coming back now I think, it’s a good set-up and I’ve improved quite a lot.

“When it was the 19’s and the B team there’s a lot more focus on the individual performances and the individual programmes that they have set-up there.

“It focuses on improving you as a player and the pathway into the first-team.

“I’ve got a lot more confidence. When I was at Gateshead it was a good spell, I was there for about a month and a half or so and played about nine games.

“I’ve got a taste of what the league is like, it’s a tough league and is obviously a new environment now, but I think it’ll be good.”

Daley also explained what York supporters can expect from their new man, with the loanee pushing for his first start against Maidenhead.

“Initially I’m a left-back but I can play left centre-back as well.

“I’m a player who likes to get up and down, I’m good defensively and my main assets are my pace going forward and I’m attacking as a full-back. Hopefully you’ll get to see that.

“I’m fit and ready to go, hopefully I’m starting as I am definitely ready.”
