Which retro Huddersfield Town shirt will you be showing off in front of the Sky Sports cameras against Brighton & HA on Thursday 2 February?
Huddersfield Town is urging supporters to wear their favourite retro Town shirts during of the Club’s top six clash against Brighton at the John Smith’s Stadium.
To get you thinking about which one you might wear, we thought we would look back at some of our favourite and most memorable home and away shirts.
We have to start with the 1994/95 home shirt sponsored by Panasonic. The collared blue and white striped shirt was worn by Huddersfield Town on the final day of the season as the Club lost 2-1 to Birmingham City.
Despite losing that match, the Town players continued to wear it in the Play-Offs and progressed into the Play-Off final after being Brentford on penalties.
Neil Warnock’s side wore the shirt in the 1995 Division Two Play-Off Final at Wembley and went onto win in the Final 2-1 against Bristol Rovers thanks to goals from Andy Booth and Chris Billy, meaning Huddersfield Town gained promotion to the second tier of English football wearing this iconic jersey.
The shirt was one of the most popular and best sellers in the Club’s history and became iconic with success and with Club Ambassador Andy Booth.
A jersey that will have caught a lot of our supporters’ eyes is the away shirt sponsored by Gola in the 1991/92 season.
The black and red hooped shirt captured the imaginations of the Huddersfield Town supports!
Another iconic shirt worn by Huddersfield Town is the chequered yellow and black one from the 1987/88 season. Despite the Club’s league position, the shirt was very popular among supporters when it was launched.
One shirt that will live long in the Club’s record books is Huddersfield Town’s centenary jersey with gold trims. The gold represented Town’s 100 year history as the Club was formed in 1908.
A number of fans bought the shirt in the 2008/09 season with 100 years printed on the back in gold lettering.
It’s not a retro shirt but we couldn’t include memorable Huddersfield Town shirts without mentioning this seasons. The 2016/17 Puma jersey is the Club’s best selling home shirt in Huddersfield Town’s history.
Town fans have flocked to the Huddersfield Town megastore and Packhorse Store throughout the season to purchase the shirt.
Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis commented:
“My favourite shirt was the 2011/12 home shirt made by Umbro; for me it symbolises success; obviously, we were promoted to the Sky Bet Championship in it and I have great memories of the Club in it.
“This is why retro shirts are so fantastic as different supporters all have different memories of wearing them and all the shirts have different meanings.
“We want to see as many of you as possible in the stand wearing and showing off your favourite shirts, showing a kaleidoscope of Huddersfield Town jerseys around the John Smith’s Stadium.
“Let’s put on a display in front of the Sky Sports cameras and take advantage of the £10 ticket offer. The lads need as much support as possible out on the pitch, so please once again create a special atmosphere.”
