Scannell and Clarke go to local school

Huddersfield Town’s ‘One Game, One Community’ Ambassadors Sean Scannell and Peter Clarke visited North Huddersfield Trust School on Monday afternoon as the build-up to Saturday’s home clash with Wolves continues.

Scannell and Clarke were joined by Town’s Club Ambassador Andy Booth and former player, Huddersfield-born Grenada international Delroy Facey, at the school to talk to the pupils about their route into football and the positive role it can play in our community. 

The pupils from North Huddersfield Trust – a School Partner of Huddersfield Town – will be involved on match day on Saturday, carrying the ‘One Game, One Community’ flag and much more.

Town’s visit to the school was filmed by local TV station Kirklees Local TV – keep checking for a full review of the afternoon!

Club Ambassador Boothy told

“North Huddersfield Trust is a fantastic, progressive school based very locally to the Club and they have been fantastic to work with – and yesterday’s visit was no exception.

“The pupils had clearly thought very carefully about their questions for the four of us ahead of our visit and you could tell they were very interested in the different routes and jobs involved in football. 

“Our ‘One Game, One Community’ ambassadors were fantastic on the afternoon; Peter is a fantastic ambassador for Huddersfield Town on and off the field, whereas Sean has come from his birthplace of Croydon and it was interesting to learn how he has had to adapt due to his move to Huddersfield.

“We’d also like to thank Delroy for coming along. He grew up in the same community as many of these kids and made it as a professional football and a full Grenada international, so his experiences really hit home with the children.

“We’re looking forward to seeing the pupils from the school down at the game on Saturday.”
