SUPPORTERS SHOW RESPECT FOR FORCES

7 November 2012

Yorkshire Regiment appeal goes down well on Tuesday

Huddersfield Town backed the Mayor of Kirklees’ Charity Appeal on Tuesday night during the dramatic 2-2 draw with Blackburn Rovers.
 
This year the Mayor of Kirklees, Cllr David Ridgway, has chosen the Yorkshire Regiment Benevolent Trust as his charity for his term of office and the Club supported his fundraising campaigning at yesterday’s game.
 
Soldiers from the Territorial Army and the Cadets helped out by holding a bucket collection around the ground ahead of kick-off, with Town and Rovers fans digging deep to support our troops. The money from the collection is still being counted, but keep an eye on Town’s twitter feed - @htafcdotcom – later this week for a total!


 
Town fans joined their counterparts from visitors Blackburn Rovers, as well as the players and officials, for a minute’s applause ahead of the kick-off to recognise the efforts of the Yorkshire Regiment – and all our Armed Forces. 
  
As both teams entered the pitch ahead of the game the TA and Cadets also formed a guard of honour.

The shirts of Simon Grayson’s side also sported the iconic poppy emblem for the fixture and these will now be auctioned off to raise money for the Royal British Legion; check out htafc.com on Friday for information on how to get hold of a shirt!


 
Elsewhere on the evening the Club’s White Rose Club was abuzz, with former Town man Delroy Facey taking to the stage with Match Day Announcer Paul Ramsden.
