Money going to the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign
Cyclists from the ‘Pedal for Pounds 3’ fundraising bike ride from Yeovil to Huddersfield got together for a football tournament at the Zone on Saturday – and raised £1,000 for the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign!
11 teams took part in the tournament at The Zone, with each team paying a minimum of £65 to enter the competition.
The Gas Club donated £100 towards trophies, medals, balls and bibs whereas the Zone offered free use of its pitches and provided four referees. Huddersfield Town donated the match balls and a signed home shirt, which raised £240 on its own through a fundraising raffle!
The Play-Off Trophy also made a guest appearance for fans to get pictures.
The money will go toward the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign – the initiative that raises cash for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Huddersfield Town Academy.
The finalists - Team Grey and Team Purple –will play the final of the tournament during the half time interval of Town’s first home game of the season against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday 21 August.
As well as the knockout competition, there was a penalty shootout competition - won by Gareth Pritchard of Team Grey.
Rob Siswick, who organised the day, commented:
“The day itself was a fantastic occasion; everybody played the game in the right spirit and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
“There are definitely a lot of sore limbs; a few people were struggling to move on Sunday - myself included! We are already looking to make this an annual event after P4P4!
- they made it run like clockwork. Also a big thank you to HTAFC for the donated items, and to those that took part.”Zone“I would like to say a massive thank you to Paul France and his team at The
