Huddersfield Town players out in the community
- Huddersfield Town celebrates EFL ‘Week of Action’
- Town players out to support the initiative
- Football sessions held at Foundation schools and Leisure Centres
Huddersfield Town B Team players and the Club’s Foundation staff members have taken part in the EFL ‘Week of Action’, aimed at supporting those who are vulnerable within our communities.
Huddersfield Town B team players have visited the Huddersfield Leisure Centre and local schools in the Kirklees area to help celebrate the initiative set out by the EFL.
Using the power of football, EFL Clubs and Club Community Organisations (CCOs) collectively invest over £59m in their communities every year, engaging with some of the most vulnerable members of society.
B team players Pat Jones, Ben Midgley, and Jaheim Headley all attended an inclusive multi-sport session that took place at Huddersfield Leisure Centre. Funded by Kirklees Council, the session takes place weekly and is aimed at 8–18-year-olds with a disability and/or have special educational needs.
This week's session was football based, and the three B team players were involved every step of the way. After warming up with those in attendance, there was an attack vs defense drill, followed up by a finishing drill during some small-sided matches. The players then presented each child with a certificate for attending the session.
Mustapha Olagunju and Nassim Kherbouche helped open Easter Fair at one of the Town Foundation’s Breakfast Club schools, Lily Park Primary School in Golcar.
Mustapha helped welcome the children and their families into Lily Park Primary School, where he and Nassim ran a ‘Beat the Goalie’ target practice activity for those that visited.
The Club is proud to be able to support the work of the Huddersfield Town Foundation and acknowledges its importance to so many people within the community.
