Terriers recruit Nepal based Lokpriya Higher Secondary as a School Partner
Huddersfield Town has made its first overseas signing of the season by recruiting Lokpriya Higher Secondary as an official school partner.
Based in Manang, Nepal, the school was visited by Town’s Football in the Community Manager Rob Day during a recent trip to the country.
Rob presented the school with an official school partner plaque (pictured) and delivered 18 Huddersfield Town shirts donated by the Club.
At 12,000ft Rob played football with the school children who were all kitted out in the Terriers’ 2011/12 home shirt.
Rob told htafc.com:
“It was a brilliant experience meeting the school children and teacher Suresh.
“I can’t imagine there are too many football clubs who are affiliated with schools in Nepal – although I think arranging player visits may be a little hard logistically!
“The Club’s School Partnership Scheme is constantly growing, check out the information below to find out how to sign up.”
Town's School Partnership scheme provides schools with support sessions, sports equipment and coaching days free of charge courtesy of the Club’s Football in the Community department.
Involvement in the scheme is totally free of charge to any school who wants to become an official Huddersfield Town Partner School. The scheme has five tiers of commitment which means schools can participate at any level they desire.
The aim of the partnership is to formalise all the offerings Huddersfield Town currently make to schools in one service through the Club, FITC and support sessions. It will also provide schools with assistance during the recession through 'cashback' schemes, student rewards, player visits and school kits provided by Huddersfield Town.
