HUDDERSFIELD Town have unveiled a new shirt.
They will wear a special shirt in aid of Help for Heroes when they line up for the game against Walsall on November 5.
This week three former servicemen met Town boss Lee Clark.
Lance Corporal Stephen Hurst, now living in Mirfield, was a member of the Army for 12 years. Aircraft Engineering Mechanic Guy Bradley served in the Navy for five-and-a-half years.
Both Town fans, they joined Clark and current first team physio Dave Buckby – who was a Flight Lieutenant in the RAF for 16 years before joining the Terriers.
The special shirt, which is mainly white with the colours of Help for Heroes – blue and red – in the chevron around the neck, will also be available to buy in the Stadium Superstore and online at htafcmegastore.com in limited numbers from this Saturday. Just 500 will go on sale.
Lance Cpl Hurst said: “My regiment has done two tours in Afghanistan so far and roughly 30 to 40 people have been hurt in the line of duty.
“I still have friends that are affected by the things that have gone on out there and the rehabilitation and the support they receive from Help for Heroes is vital.
“I’m delighted that my local club wants to chip in and do its part.”
Aircraft Engineering Mechanic Bradley added: “The Navy needs the support of Help for Heroes too as we have pilots, aircraft engineers and Marines out in Afghanistan and Iraq.
“I’m delighted that my club – Huddersfield Town – are supporting Help for Heroes.”
