Huddersfield Town’s first ever Premier League season was a culmination of an unbelievable journey in this Club’s modern history.
As Chairman, I was delighted for the staff and the players. Everyone has worked tremendously hard to make this dream a reality and place this Club among England’s elite for the first time in 45 years.
However, I was most pleased for you, our loyal fans. Like me, you’ve stuck with Huddersfield Town through the highs and the lows over the years – and there have been plenty of lows! In a way, I think the low points make the success sweeter; when you’ve seen your team playing in Division Four or League 2, it makes these Premier League days feel extra special.
I was very keen on documenting the emotions of everyone at the Club as we experienced the Premier League for the first time and as you will see from this book, Jude has done a superb job of capturing the love that you have for the Terriers. From the start of your match day – your journey to the ground, your time at the pub with fellow fans – to the stadia and the celebrations, it’s all in here.
Looking through the book, I’ve loved seeing the raw emotion that Huddersfield Town can evoke. Nothing brings strangers and people from all different walks of life together like football.
I’m so pleased that we decided to put this book together, documenting our journey together in a special season. I hope you enjoy working through the pages as much as I have.
