HOLMES WINS DONALD BELL AWARD
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Tuesday, August 27, 2013
Huddersfield's American teenager Duane Holmes has won the first ever Donald Bell Award.

The Donald Bell Award is awarded by the League Football Education board (LFE) to a player who "has overcome adversity in some form during their two-year Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (ASE) program managed by LFE."

Holmes, 18, was nominated for the Apprentice of the Year award last season in the Championship and later signed a two year professional contract with the Huddersfield.

Holmes was born in the United States to an American father and an English mother. He moved back to England when he was five years old and joined the Huddersfield youth system when he was nine. Since then he has consistently moved up within the ranks.

Over the weekend, he scored the game winning goal for Huddersfield's U-21 team in a 2-1 win over Leeds.
