Hardy started his career with Huddersfield Town and made his debut for them on 17 October 2006, in their 2–1 home defeat against Doncaster Rovers in Round One of the Football League Trophy. He got many plaudits for his play at right-back in an otherwise poor team performance. Then, on 21 October, he played his first league match in Town's 2-1 win at Port Vale.
On 9 May, he was offered a six-month contract by new Huddersfield Town boss Andy Ritchie, which he accepted on 31 May. On 28 September, after a series of good performances at right-back as cover for the injured Frank Sinclair, his contract was extended to the end of the season.
