HE’S one of Huddersfield Town’s keen young fans.

And tomorrow, 11-year-old Town fan Billy Charlton is hoping to volley chairman Dean Hoyle into touch when they go head-to-head in a Question of Sport-type event tomorrow.

He’s banking on his super memory to help him win the battle.

Billy, of Melrose Close, Dalton, will be on a team headed by Huddersfield Town Supporters Association chairman Steve King, who are taking on Town’s team consisting of Mr Hoyle, chief executive Nigel Clibbens and commercial director Sean Jarvis.

Billy, who only attended his first Huddersfield Town game last October, can’t wait to take on Town’s directors according to his dad, Paul.

“He is really looking forward to it, he can’t wait to take on Dean,” Paul said.

“He has met Dean before and had his picture taken with him when he visited his school with the Play-Off Final trophy.

“He was over the moon when I told him that he could be involved. I have to thank Town supporter Andy Shuter for allowing him on to the team – he won’t let them down, he knows his stuff.”

“He has a photographic memory, it is brilliant.

“I first noticed it when he was able to recite all the games from last season and the goalscorers.

“I went out and bought him books and DVDs about Huddersfield Town; he loves reading about the club.

“You can ask him about any year of Town’s existence and he will be able to tell you plenty of facts from it.”

The event will take place at Town’s Canalside Sports Complex after the Bolton game at the John Smith’s Stadium and all money raised will go to the Town Foundation.

The quiz will be refereed by a professional – former Premier League referee Jeff Winter.

Town’s very own Paul Ramsden will be the Master of Ceremonies on the evening, whilst band King Monday will provide further entertainment.

Entry to the event is free, but there will be auctions and raffles held on the evening with proceeds going to the Town Foundation – the charity that aims to make a difference in our community.

There are no tickets required – simply turn up on the evening.
