A review of the off the field activity on Saturday

Huddersfield Town used Saturday’s home match against Hull to raise awareness of the Football League’s chosen charity Prostate Cancer UK.

Town sported the Charity’s logo on their home shirts which have since been individually signed and will be auctioned off on eBay with the proceeds being donated to Prostate Cancer UK.

Keep checking for information on how to bid and when they will be listed.

Ahead of the match, fans from both teams paid tribute to eight hardy Pedal for Pounds bike ride veterans who had just completed a 24 hour, 240 mile bike ride.

The cyclists, all from bike ride Team Red - Michael Greig, Ian Gledhill, Les Field, Gary Denial, Andrew Scott, Matthew Smithies, Martyn Broughton and Dave Noon – cycled four on, four off through the night to raise funds for the Club’s Academy and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. The eight cyclists – who are all taking part in P4P4 – were given a fantastic reception as they completed a lap of honour.

Prior to the match the Town family braved the cold weather to hand out Easter Books to Town’s junior supporters. The books were kindly provided by Club Partner Igloo Books.

Last month we told you how Town had recruited its first overseas School Partner in Nepal based school Lokpriya Higher Secondary (click HERE to read the story). On Saturday, Town added Bay Rovers of the Republic of Ireland to its list of overseas partners. Town invited players from its new Club Partner’s team to form a guard of honour as the Town and Hull entered the field of play. Prior to that they had been given a tour of the Stadium and were also presented with their plaque at half-time by midfielder Jordan Sinnott.
