Joseph "Joe" Lolley (born 25 August 1992) is an English winger/striker who plays for Huddersfield Town. He has also represented his country at England C level and University level.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Redditch, Lolley was part of Birmingham City’s academy until the age of 16.[1] He then moved to Bromsgrove Rovers, but made his name with Midland Combination side Littleton, scoring 88 goals in 83 games.[1]

Kidderminster Harriers[edit]

In July 2013, following a successful trial, Lolley signed a one-year contract with Conference Premier side Kidderminster Harriers.[2] After a strong start to the season, Lolley scored his first Harriers goal in his second appearance, a 3–1 win over Chester. Lolley went on to score 9 league goals in 21 league appearances, and also 2 goals in 4 appearances in the FA Cup. Kidderminster won every single game that Lolley scored in.[3] In his last league game for the Harriers, he scored a hat-trick against Salisbury City,[4] in his last game for the Harriers, he scored the winning goal in a 3–2 FA Cup 3rd Round replay away to Peterborough United. Kidderminster received an offer from Peterborough United, but Lolley rejected the move.[5]

Huddersfield Town[edit]

On 15 January 2014, just one day after scoring the goal that knocked Peterborough out of the FA Cup, Lolley joined Championship side Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee.[6] He made his début as a substitute in the 5–1 defeat by Leeds United at Elland Road on 1 February 2014.[7] On 3 May 2014, Lolley made his first start for the Terriers where he scored the first goal in the 4–1 victory over Watford in the 46th minute and also claimed two assists which was the last game of the season. On 14 March 2015, Lolley scored his second league goal for Huddersfield in a 1–1 away draw at Birmingham City.[8] His first home goal for the Terriers was the equalising goal in the 2–2 draw against Blackburn Rovers on 25 April 2015.

On 25 September, Lolley joined Scunthorpe United on an initial one-month loan.[9] After making 6 appearances on loan for the Iron, he along with his team-mate Murray Wallace were recalled on 1 November.

International career[edit]

As an England and Great Britain International, Lolley has represented his country at both University Level and semi-professional level. In the summer of 2013 he was selected by the Great Britain University team to play at the 2013 World University Games in Russia where GB went on to reach the final winning the silver medal.[10][11] He then made his debut for the England C team in a 2–2 friendly match with the Czech Republic U21’s in November 2013 during his time at Kidderminster.[12][13]

Lolley is a fan of English Football League side Aston Villa[14]
