Kit[edit]

The 2013/14 season was the Club's first with technical kit supplier Puma, following the conclusion of the Club's deal with previous supplier Umbro. Rekorderlig Cider and Radian B continued their sponsorship of the home and away shirts, respectively.

The home shirt was a traditional blue and white stripes, complete with white shorts and black socks.[1] The away kit featured a black shirt with red sleeves, and was completed with black shorts and red socks.[2] On 2 August 2013, the Club announced the addition of an all-bright yellow third kit, to be worn the following day at Nottingham Forest.[3] Due to Thornton & Ross's sponsorship of away shirts, Town couldn't wear their Rekorderlig-sponsored home shirt away from home, so this shirt was deemed necessary for away games where black and red could not be worn. These shirts featured the sponsorship of Covonia, one of Thornton & Ross's brands, and 1,000 replicas were produced for sale with profits going to the Huddersfield Town Foundation.

During the course of the season, Alex Smithies wore four different coloured goalkeeper kits, all in the same Puma template.

Review[edit]

Following the end of the previous season, Town released Scott Arfield, Alan Lee and Tom Clarke. Lee Novak was offered a new deal, but rejected it and rejoined former manager Lee Clark at Birmingham City instead. Two days later, Clarke reunited with Simon Grayson at Preston North End. On July 18, young midfielder Chris Atkinson was sent on loan to Tranmere Rovers until January 2, 2014. The following day, Scott Arfield joined Burnley on a free transfer after being released by Town. On August 7, young midfielder Jordan Sinnott joined Bury on loan until January 5, 2014, but his loan was cancelled on 18 October. The following day, winger Kallum Higginbotham left the club, joining Scottish Premiership side Partick Thistle on a two-year deal. On August 22, young striker James Spencer joined Football League Two side Scunthorpe United on loan until January. Following his return from Glanford Park, he was released on January 31, 2014. On August 31, just as the transfer window was closing, talented right-back Jack Hunt left the Terriers for Premier League side Crystal Palace for a fee believed to be around £2 million. Young goalkeeper Lloyd Allinson was sent out on loan to Ilkeston on 27 September. The following day, left-back Liam Ridehalgh joined Tranmere Rovers on a 3-month loan. He would eventually join the Rovers on a permanent basis on 3 January. On 10 October, Cristian López joined Shrewsbury Town on a month's loan, however, his loan was cancelled on 5 November, due to an injury crisis at the club. On 19 November, striker Daniel Carr joined Fleetwood Town on a month's loan. On 20 December, young goalkeeper Ed Wilczynski joined F.C. United of Manchester on a month's loan. At the end of 2013, four of Town's development squad left for pastures new, Dale Hopson joined Darlington 1883, James Burke and Robbie McIntyre joined Bury and Max Leonard joined Brighouse Town. On January 24, young striker Paul Mullin joined Conference North side Vauxhall Motors on loan for a month, and Chris Atkinson joined Bradford City on loan for the rest of the season. On 31 January, just as the transfer deadline was shutting up, Jon Stead joined Oldham Athletic on a month's loan. On 19 February, defender Jake Carroll joined Bury on a month's loan. The following day, young midfielder Duane Holmes joined fellow Championship side Yeovil Town on a month's loan, which was curtailed on 17 March. On 14 March, Cristian López joined Northampton Town on loan till the end of the season. The following day, striker Martin Paterson joined Bristol City, also for the remainder of the season. On 24 March, Anton Robinson joined Coventry City on loan for the rest of the season.

On June 24, after a noticeable lack of activity, Town made their first signing of the summer with Jon Stead returning to the club he left in January 2004 on a free transfer, after leaving Bristol City. Also joining Town on the same day was former loan signing Adam Hammill signed on an undisclosed fee from Wolverhampton Wanderers. The following day, Northern Ireland international Martin Paterson signed on a two-year deal following his release by Burnley. On July 3, Norwich City striker James Vaughan, who had a successful loan spell the previous season, signed on a 3-year deal for an undisclosed fee. On July 29, Town signed central midfielder Jonathan Hogg on a three-year deal from fellow Championship side Watford for an undisclosed fee. The following day, Spanish striker Cristian López signed from Atlético Baleares on a free transfer on a one-year deal, following a successful trial period. On September 10, just as the loan window opened, Town signed Welsh international full-back Jazz Richards on a 93-day emergency loan from Premier League side Swansea City. As the loan window closed on November 28, Town signed striker Harry Bunn on loan from Manchester City until January 5, 2014, mainly to be put into the team's development squad. He then cancelled his contract with City to sign a permanent deal with the Terriers on January 20, until the end of the season. On January 10, Town broke their transfer record in completing the signing of the Bermudan international striker Nahki Wells from Bradford City for a fee believed to be in the region of £1.5 million. On January 15, Town made their 2nd big signing of the window, by bringing in the winger/striker Joe Lolley from Conference Premier side Kidderminster Harriers for a fee in the region of £250,000. On January 21, Norwegian youth international midfielder Sondre Tronstad signed on a free transfer from IK Start.
