Great Scott Signs On

19 July 2013

Arfield agrees deal following pre-season trial

Burnley Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of former Huddersfield Town midfielder Scott Arfield on a two-year deal.

Arfield, 24, joins the Clarets on a free transfer after joining the club on trial in pre-season.

The former Scottish U21 international spent three years with the Terriers, making 119 appearances and scoring nine times.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche said: “Scott is a player with a good background who came down from Scotland a few years ago and is a really good talent. 

“He joined us in pre-season and valued the chance to work hard here. That has deservedly rewarded him with a contract and we hope he continues to build here and turn into a really valuable player for us.”

Arfield began his career in his homeland with Falkirk, where he progressed through the Academy and went on to make 108 appearances.

He starred in the 2008/09 campaign, scoring 10 goals and finishing with a Scottish Cup runners-up medal as Falkirk lost in the Hampden Park final to Glasgow Rangers.

Following his six-figure move to Huddersfield in 2010, he played a major part in Town’s promotion to the Championship just over 12 months ago, appearing 38 times and scoring twice.

And during his last season at the Galpharm Stadium, he was again heavily involved and appeared at Turf Moor as a substitute in the Terriers’ 1-0 victory in February 2013.
