PRIME Minister David Cameron has wished Town all the best in the play-off final against Sheffield United.

PRIME Minister David Cameron has wished Huddersfield Town all the best in the play-off final against Sheffield United.

Mr Cameron was told about Town’s Wembley date by avid fan and Colne Valley Tory MP Jason McCartney at yesterday’s Prime Minister’s Question Time.

Mr McCartney told the House of Commons how Town fans were celebrating victory over MK Dons, and also explained how well manufacturing was doing locally on the day unemployment fell.

Mr Cameron replied: “That’s good news for Huddersfield Town. I would like to wish them good luck in the final.”

Mr McCartney said that a couple of the Sheffield MPs grumbled at his attempt to win the PM’s support for Town.

“It was light-hearted banter,” said Mr McCartney, who is on the Parliamentary football group.

“Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, is a Sheffield MP so he’ll be supporting the Blades and the Prime Minister is supporting Huddersfield. The Coalition is happy!”
