Ever fancied owning a bit of the club’s heritage?

Well now you can, because Huddersfield YMCA Rugby Union club are offering the chance for anyone to snap up seats from the old Town ground at Leeds Road.

In 1994 a new stand was under construction at YMCA’s Laund Hill complex, and the then chairman Peter Ruddiman, along with Maurice Mosley, Malcolm Eastwood and Steve Metcalfe and host of volunteers managed to gain access to the Leeds Road ground as the wrecking balls were swinging and knocking down the main stand to salvage 500 seats before they were burnt, saving a little bit of history before it was lost for ever.

The seats were then re-painted in the club’s red colour and installed in the stand.

Over the years however, wear and tear took its toll, but they are still rock solid.

The club have now secured 600 seats from the Don Valley stadium, and are replacing the old Town seats as part of the refurbishment of the stand, but it would be a shame if some of Town’s history would be lost to the fans forever!

As an amateur club the YM need to raise funds, so are offering Town fans the opportunity to buy the seats (which come in multiples of 3 seats joined together).

The club would like to get £45 per set, as this would them help offset the costs of refurbishment, but would consider any reasonable offer.

Anyone interested in a part of Huddersfield Town’s history should contact Tom Sanderson or Stephen King (HTSA), who will then get in touch with you when they are available for collection.

Tom can be reached on 07547 454939 or E mail. bfbsanderson@gmail.com
Steve’s number is 07753 634298 or E mail chair@htsa-online.co.uk
