- NBC Environment become ‘Official Falconer’ to Town
- NBC will help with pest control at the Stadium & Training Ground
- Comments from Luke Summers & Sean Jarvis
NBC Environment have become the ‘Official Falconer’ of Huddersfield Town providing birds of prey to help the Club with pest control.
The John Smith’s Stadium has already featured several Eagles over the years - such as the famous American rock band and Premier League rivals Crystal Palace – but not quite the ornithological type.
As the ‘Official Falconer’ to the Club, NBC Environment will provide hawks and falcons to help control the number of pigeons and other pests at both the John Smith’s Stadium and PPG Canalside training complex.
Jet – one of the Peregrine Falcon’s owned by the Company – has already featured in the national press and appeared on Sky Sports News helping at The Open, where he was tasked to control the number of seagulls occupying the greens at Royal Birkdale.
NBC Environment will be appearing at Saturday’s Fanzone at PPG Canalside ahead of the Leicester City game and Town fans will be able to meet the birds of prey and have their photo taken with them.
Luke Summers the Falconer at NBC Environment commented:
“I’m really proud to be involved with Huddersfield Town, I know Sean [Jarvis] from his time at Oldham and he does a fantastic job. It is great to be involved with a Club that has such strong family values and are bringing real football back to the community.
“We are glad to be able to help the Club with keeping pigeons away from the pitches at the training ground and at the Stadium. It’s not often fans can get close to birds of prey, so I look forward to attending the Fanzone at PPG Canalside on Saturday and letting fans get up close and have their photos taken with them”
Commercial Director Sean Jarvis added:
“It’s great to be working with Luke and NBC Environment. Not only will they help the Club manage pests but will also allow the younger fans to come down and learn more about the birds of prey.
“Make sure you pay a visit to the PPG Canalside Fanzone on Saturday where fans will be able to meet the birds of prey amongst other activities taking place”
