Club supports ‘Kick It Out’ on Saturday
Fans who attended Saturday’s ‘Town for All’ match against Millwall will have noticed a number of special guests taking part in activities throughout the day.
Terry the Terrier and the Town Family were out and about at pre-match handing out ‘Kick It Out’ stickers and wrist bands to supporters.
Town players wore warm up tops bearing the ‘Kick It Out’ message to support the campaign.
Over 20 seven year-olds received their Huddersfield Town replica shirts through the ‘Terrier 7’s’ scheme. Terry the Terrier, alongside Academy players Sam Guthrie and Danny Kane, were on hand to give out the shirts and have photos taken.
Huddersfield Town’s ‘Ability Counts’ team were also present at the game. The juniors involved in this programme - which is aimed at increasing the participation of disabled people in football - formed the ‘guard of honour’ as the players entered the pitch prior to kick-off and then returned to demonstrate their skills in a training session on the pitch at half-time.
School partner Moor End Academy chose 10 students to participate in the flag-bearing guard of honour following their own ‘Kick It Out’ day, which was attended by Town’s Club Ambassador Andy Booth.
Yorkshire Terriers football team also attended the match. The team play in the Gay Football Supporters’ Network (GFSN) national league and pit themselves against similar teams from all over the country.
