Lots on for children at Saturday's match

- Over 1,000 children and families at Derby match
- HTAFC player Ronan Coughlan meets youngsters
- Next Huddersfield Town Schools Focus against Bristol City

1,100 local school children and families came to watch Town against Derby County at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday through the Club’s latest ‘Schools Focus’ initiative!

Tickets were sold to 90 schools from the local area, which all earned cashback through the scheme whilst allowing pupils and their parents to watch the game at a discounted price.

Children had the opportunity to have their faces painted for free by Artifaces and there was also a balloon modeller who made all sorts of creation for the young Terriers.

Before the start of the match against Derby, there was the first Terrier 7s presentation of the season.

Town player Ronan Coughlan presented children who celebrated their seventh birthday with their first replica shirt. For more information please email

The Club’s match day helpers, the Town Family helped give all the children special Terry the Terrier stickers, which they all wore proudly on their shirts. 

One of Town’s club partners Hepworth United Junior formed the Guard of Honour as both teams walked out onto the pitch for the start of the game. At half-time they also took part in a penalty shoot-out on the pitch.

Town will be running their next School’s Focus game against newly-promoted Bristol City on 12 December.
