THE season may be over but the summer months will be a busy time for the Huddersfield Town Supporters Association.
On Sunday there is an enterprising fund-raising effort to support the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.
There will be a 5-a-side Walking Football Tournament, which is much more demanding than you might think – are you up to it?
The event will take place at Soccer City, Waterloo, from 1pm, involving squads of 6-8, targeted to have at least one player over 45 and/or a female.
To arrange a last minute entry, please contact John Sealey on 07973 745943 or why not just come along for a fun-day out with a chance to win a raffle prize or buy yourself a bargain T-shirt?
The next event on the horizon is the national Supporters Summit conference.
This will take place on Saturday, June 22nd at St George’s Park near Burton-on-Trent, the FA’s new training centre, and is to be addressed by David Bernstein, the recently-appointed FA chairman. Tickets for the event are only £15 and include a free tour of St George’s Park.
The event will be hosted jointly by Supporters Direct and the Football Supporters Federation, and will see a series of workshops covering issues from the FSF’s campaign on cutting the cost of away ticket prices, to the sustainability of football, protecting football stadia, and fan engagement.

This is a great opportunity to join in the key debates involving all true supporters, described by David Bernstein as: “One of the vital parts that make our national game what it is”.
