Author David Peace selects his Town side

To celebrate the launch of the new 2013/14 home kit as tailored by PUMA, is asking for your #htafcgreatest team – and another of the Club’s most famous fans has made his selection today!

David Peace - author of 'The Damned United' - has selected the best XI players he has ever seen pull on the famous blue and white stripes, following closely on from Sir Patrick Stewart (click HERE for his eleven), Chris Fountain (click HERE), Local MP Jason McCartney (click HERE) and actor Reece Dinsdale (click HERE) to continue our drive to find Town’s best side.

David Peace's #htafcgreatest:

Here is my Best XI; sadly, I never saw any of these players actually play. But these are the legends my grandad and father brought me up on. And, I suppose, that is part of the magic and mystery of football; the players you wished you'd seen and the dreams of the players you hope to see, one day, in the future ...

Huddersfield Town has called upon some of its greatest ever players to showcase the new 2013/14 home kit, as designed by PUMA – with an eleven of legendary Huddersfield Town players chosen to don the shirts on the 100th anniversary of the Club wearing blue and white stripes, following from the inaugural striped shirt in the 1913/14 campaign.
