How is Fraizer Campbell getting on since leaving Hull City?

Published

He has represented eight clubs across 13 years, won an England cap and has appeared in a Manchester derby. But how has Fraizer Campbell been getting on since leaving Hull City over the summer?

Campbell scored 15 goals for Hull City during the 2007-2008 season where the Tigers were promoted to the Premier League and returned to the KCOM Stadium in 2017.

Over the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 seasons, Campbell made 75 league appearances for the Tigers and scored 18 goals.

Last season, he managed 12 of those 18 and it may have been seen by some as a surprise when City opted not to extend his contract, releasing him from the club.

In August, his home-town club Huddersfield, snapped up the forward on a two-year deal, becoming his ninth club since 2006.

Since joining the Terriers, Campbell has made 12 league appearances for the club and has notched up a goal and an assist in that time.

The 32-year-old said last month that being at Huddersfield was the “perfect move” and how he sees about 100 people he knows at every home game.

Campbell was signed by former Terriers manager Jan Siewert and his five appearances for the club all ended in defeat.

Town, however have seen an upturn in results since the arrival of Danny Cowley and went on a seven game unbeaten run, which included a 3-0 victory over Campbell’s former club Hull.

Although he hasn’t been firing goals in for fun yet at Town, Campbell has clearly impressed the Cowley brothers during their short time in West Yorkshire, starting six of their ten games in charge and featuring off the bench in three others.

At 32, Campbell is now one of the more experienced players in the squad, and it is this experience that has pleased Cowley so far this term.

Speaking before last month’s game with Hull City, Cowley told the Yorkshire Post: “He is a great character and he has had a great career. But he wants to add to it, the great thing about Fraizer is that he can come loose and link and combine and brings others into the game.

Despite only having the one goal to his name so far, Campbell’s pace and ability to stretch the opposition defence has added to the side’s attacking threat, and Campbell was the man to provide the assist for Karlan Grant’s goal in the 1-0 win at Brentford last Saturday.

Campbell is on a two year deal at Town and his experience will be vital in helping the club continue to move away from the Championship relegation zone.

Hull City didn’t exercise the option to extend Campbell’s contract in the summer and this season don’t appear to be missing his goals, with the likes of Jarrod Bowen in fine form.

The former Manchester United player’s experience however, could have been an added boost if the Tigers are serious about making a play-off push.
