Huddersfield Town return to blue and white
Jan 19 2010 by Dougie Thomson, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
TOWN will be back in blue and white stripes tonight after Saturday’s surprise appearance in yellow and red.
The alternative strip was worn as a one-off against Southend to raise further funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
It’s believed to be the first time Town have worn a change strip for a home league game
More than 300 of the 500 replicas have already been snapped up, with orders coming from as far afield as Australia, Hong Kong and Poland.
Town expect the limited-edition allocation of the kit, specially produced by Mitre, to be sold out by close of business tonight.
The receipts go to the Keep It Up campaign, with half of all money raised going to the Air Ambulance, which costs £7,200 a day to run, and half to Town’s academy.
With Town being in blue and white tonight, Rovers will wear their change colours of yellow shirts and green shorts.
Tonight’s referee is Russell Booth, from Nottinghamshire, who last took charge of Town at home to Peterborough last January.
