Boothroyd, Robb and Proud feature in half-time presentation

A special Town trio were honoured at Saturday’s npower Championship win over Millwall.

Chairman Dean Hoyle took to the pitch during the half time interval for three special presentations to people who have made a big contribution to the Club.

Alan Boothroyd made his successful return to Huddersfield Town after completing an amazing 40 marathons in 20 days for the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign, the fundraising scheme in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Huddersfield Town Academy.

Alan was presented with a special shirt from the Club honouring his achievements. So far he has generated over £16,000 for his efforts, but you can still donate – click HERE to visit his JustGiving page. For full details of his marathons click HERE!

Dean also paid tribute to the Huddersfield Town Supporters Association’s John Robb, who retired from his role as secretary of the Heavy Woollen branch earlier this month after 18 years in the post. The 68 year-old, who watched his first Town game in 1950, joined Town’s Chairman and HTSA Chairman Steve King on the pitch for his presentation.

Another long-serving Town fan, Joan Proud, has also called it a day after serving the Young Terriers supporters club for many years; Dean also made a presentation to her during the half-time interval.

Meanwhile, in the corporate areas, the latest instalment of ‘Gordon’s Games’ took place in partnership with Gordon’s Solicitors, with Dean Hoyle joining Millwall Chief Executive Andy Ambler and Match Day Announcer Paul Ramsden to give attendees a unique insight into the running of a Championship football club.

Dean was a busy man on Saturday, giving an insightful pre-match interview to BBC Radio Leeds – click HERE to find out more.

Ahead of the 12.30pm kick-off Town players Sean Scannell and Adam Clayton made their way to pitch-side to meet the mixture of Town and Leeds United fans who walked to Elland Road for the West Yorkshire derby between the two sides in mid-March. Together they raised hundreds of pounds for the Bobby Robson Foundation and Yorkshire Cancer Research. 

Top fundraiser Elliott was even presented with a signed Town shirt!

Town’s Golden Gamble rollover prize was also won at the weekend, meaning one lucky fan walked away £3,500 richer – click HERE for full info!
