A LITTLE bit of Huddersfield Town soccer history is up for sale.
A blue and white striped shirt worn by Town centre-forward Sam Taylor in the 1920 FA Cup Final will be auctioned on March 11.
It is expected to fetch thousands of pounds when it is sold at the Football Sports Auctions sale at Lincoln City football club.
In recent years the shirt has been on display in the boardroom at the John Smith’s Stadium.
But now its owner, a Huddersfield man, has decided to sell.
Andy Lane, managing director of the auction company, said: “It is a part of Huddersfield’s football history and we think it will certainly attract a lot of attention in our specialist sale.”
Town lost the final 1-0 on April 24, 1920, but had some consolation by securing promotion from Division II that same season.

Taylor was born in Sheffield and signed for Town in 1919 from Silverwood Colliery.
In his first season, he was ever-present, scoring 35 goals from 42 league appearances as Huddersfield finished as runners-up and were promoted to the First Division for the first time.
