Money missing from Huddersfield Town Supporters’ Association accounts
AN INVESTIGATION has begun to find money allegedly missing from Huddersfield Town Supporters’ Association funds.
But HTSA officials say they are unable to tell Huddersfield Town supporters where the money has gone until their accounts have been reconciled.
There are unconfirmed reports that up to £2,500 is missing from a fund to organise travel to away games.
HTSA’s acting chairman Steve King said: “HTSA end of year accounts are currently with our accountants.
“Unfortunately there is an unresolved issue that we are unable to comment on further until the accounts have been reconciled.”
Mr King was appointed acting chairman in May, 2011, after the resignation of the previous chairman.
Robert Pepper, who is on the HTSA committee, told the Examiner: “The situation is that quite simply we are still waiting to finalise our audited accounts and are still trying to gather the information on the audited accounts.
“We have not been able to finalise the accounts because we don’t have enough information to clarify the figures in the accounts.
“The money that we are talking about is travel money that people pay for coach travel to away matches.
“We are not able to reconcile the information for the numbers of people that were on the coaches last season.
“It’s a matter of the accounts being incomplete and clarifying the number of passengers and amount of money collected. We’re still in the process of completing the accounts before we have them audited, which is a requirement.”
