Speaking on the experience with the first team and reflecting on Tuchel's management, Colwill said: “It was a big step up from the under-23s; the intensity was a joke if I’m honest.

“Everyone is one or two touch. It looks so easy for them. Thomas Tuchel spoke to me and he was really humble, that was quite a calming feeling.

“I feel it helped me loads as when I came here (to Huddersfield) for pre-season, I felt ready.”

The defender will be keep to impress Tuchel at the start of next season, much like Trevoh Chalobah did, as he aims to prove himself to the German and earn his place in the Blues squad.
