FITC visit Elland for a game of football

Huddersfield Town's Football in the Community team joined forces with Pennine Housing 2000 last week to offer underprivileged children from the Elland community an opportunity to play football. 

It is the second time this year that Town has used its power within the community to help Pennine Housing's vision of giving local communities a better future. In April, Town’s Football in the Community team visited Rastrick and held a six-a-side game of football.

Last week, Terry the Terrier and Town's Football in the Community coaches visited an area of Elland and set up a game of football which allowed children from the community to turn up and enjoy a fun sporting activity!

Huddersfield Town's Football in the Community Manager Rob Day commented:

"It is great going out into our local community and meeting children who enjoy playing football, but would normally be unable to get to us."

He added: "We had a great day and the atmosphere amongst all the children was fantastic. I would like to thank Darren (Burton) and Bobbi from Pennine Housing 2000 for their help and support."

Pennine Housing 2000 is Calderdale's largest registered social landlord, set up in March 2001 to take over the ownership and management of the council's rented housing stock following a positive ballot by tenants.
