Nostalgia: Take a look at what was being reported in the Examiner in 1999 - Are you pictured?

These young Town fans were leading the cheers in support of a scheme to help local groups.

The New Mill beavers were one of 12 local groups to sign up to take part in the Huddersfield Town scheme to raise cash for organisations in the area.

The new Cash Back scheme was sponsored and supported by the Examiner. It was set to be launched on Saturday, October 23, 1999, when Town was to take on Fulham at the McAlpine Stadium.

The idea was for charities and organisations to sell home match tickets for he 1,900 seats in the new Examiner Community Enclosure.

The club was to give 35% of the ticket value back, helping to subsidise trips and activities for voluntary groups and youth organisations.

The New Mill Beaver group was one of the first organisations to take part. At the front of the group are beavers Thomas Hoyle, left, and Christopher Longstaff.

Others taking up the scheme were Brighouse Under Sevens, West End Middle School at Cleckheaton, St Aidan’s First School, Skelmanthorpe, Lepton Badgers, Almondbury United Juniors, Linthwaite Junior FC, Moldgreen United Reformed Church, Scholes Junior and Infant School and Holy Trinity Scouts, Huddersfield.
