Clarke and Scannell on-side with ‘One Game, One Community’
Huddersfield Town stars Peter Clarke and Sean Scannell will act as the Club’s ‘One Game, One Community’ ambassadors during the 2012/13 season.
Club Captain Peter has represented Huddersfield Town superbly both on and off the field since moving to West Yorkshire from previous club Southend United during the summer of 2009.
Meanwhile, Irish under-21 international Scannell is part of the family-run ‘Scannell Academy’, which runs soccer schools in his birthplace Croydon and the surrounding areas of London.
The pair will be out and about in the community in the run-up to the Wolves fixture on 20 October 2012 promoting inclusion in football, with a series of activities planned - starting with an event targeted at mental health service users using a mixture of art and football.
Town Captain Clarke believes ‘One Game, One Community’ is an important message for football to promote:
“Football should be available to everyone and having played in Huddersfield for the last three years I know how diverse a community it is. I want everyone in our community to know what a welcoming club Huddersfield Town is and so I’m delighted to be one of Town’s ambassadors for this season.”
“It’s important to make a difference in your local area and my family – particularly my elder brothers Thomas and Damian – have been trying to give the kids in Croydon a chance to get involved in football and enjoy themselves.
“At a young age it is so easy to find the wrong path and football can be a massively positive influence in life. There were so many times that I could have gone off the rails, but my brothers and the people surrounding me in football kept me right. I want to help Huddersfield Town spread that message.”
More information about the Scannell Academy will also feature in the Wolves edition of Give Us An H, with Sean’s interview as the main feature article in that edition of the award winning Match Day Magazine!
