Town fan Nathan Hosker takes role
Huddersfield Town Town fan Nathan Hosker is the current incumbent of the voluntary role of Supporter Liaison Officer (SLO).
The role was created via consultation with the ‘All Together Town’ fan engagement panel to bring the partnership between the Club and its supporters even closer.
During the ‘New Era’ of the Club under Chairman Dean Hoyle, communication with supporters has been paramount – with regular ‘question and answer’ sessions with the Chairman and other members of the Board, alongside two – Nigel Clibbens and Sean Jarvis – also active on Twitter. Subsequently, the ‘All Together Town’ initiative was also introduced – click HERE

The aim of this new SLO role is to build and maintain a dialogue between supporters of Huddersfield Town and the Club by promoting cooperation, understanding and partnership to bring improvements to all aspects of interaction and activities.
Following a thorough interview process involving members of the ATT Panel and representatives from Huddersfield Town, Nathan was selected.
He is at both home – outside the Revell Ward Stand Lower Tier – and most away match days in order to gather feedback, whereas fans are also encouraged to contact Nathan with their ideas via firstname.lastname@example.org,
on home and away match days on 07947 564690

Huddersfield Town’s Supporter Partnerships Manager Robyn Deegan commented:
“We’re delighted that Nathan is the first Town fan to be a Supporter Liaison Officer – an important position in the Club.
“The Club has worked hard over the past five years to create a greater link between the Club and its supporters and the SLO role is the next progression towards this aim.
“He also understands the values and vision of the Club, so we see him as the ideal candidate. We hope he can build relationships with supporters of a broad cross-section of supporters.”
Nathan, who is a 26 year-old software consultant from Mirfield, added:
“I’m looking to get to know fans and people inside the Club quickly and help to make the communication between the two even closer.
“We have a very open Board of Directors here, but I think the appointment of an SLO is a good move to making communication even better. I’m delighted to be involved in that process – I hope fans bring their concerns and ideas to me so I can try and help make things progress forwards.
“I’m looking forward to speaking to fans online and in person.”
