Special event at John Smith’s Stadium looked back at Club’s original Leeds Road home

- Supporters join Club in celebrated original Leeds Road home
- Special event featured ex-players, HTSA Heritage and George Binns
- Comments from Huddersfield Town Club Ambassador Andy Booth

Hosting a special event at the John Smith’s Stadium on the 30 year anniversary of our final fixture at our original Leeds Road home, the Club was delighted to see so many supporters join us in celebrating the old stadium.

Organised by our Supporter Services team, the event saw ex-Town players, staff, journalists and more share their memories and insight on a cornerstone of the Club’s history, with the Terriers calling Leeds Road home from our inception in 1908 all the way to 1994.

Eventually replaced by our current home at the John Smith’s Stadium, our original home saw league title wins, an FA Cup victory and several subsequent relegations before the decision was made to move away for good, with the panel assembled - including input from the HTSA Heritage Project - shedding new light on that period.

Incorporating exhibitions of memorabilia from the time, live on-stage interviews, video interviews and open discussions, you can watch a video review of the event below!

Huddersfield Town Club Ambassador Andy Booth commented:

“It was absolutely fantastic to see so many people come together to take a trip down memory lane and share stories about Leeds Road after 30 years. A special place in my life and career, the stadium touched the lives of so many people, and it was wonderful to see supporters and the Club embracing that.

“Leeds Road was, is and will always be such a huge and important part of our history as a Club, it’s our original home, and we should never forget that.

“I just want to thank everybody who took the time to come down - inlcuding supporters with memorabilia of their own! - but in particular Peter Jackson, Mel Booth, Steven Chicken, Alan Sykes, Professor Graham Leslie, George Binns, David Taylor and the HTSA Heritage Project for all of their invaluable input.”
