Huddersfield Town teams of the decades: Who was your best right-back of the 00s?

HUDDERSFIELD Town have had some top right-backs over the years, and that was certainly the case in the 2000s.

HUDDERSFIELD Town have had some top right-backs over the years, and that was certainly the case in the 2000s.

But who was the best of the crop?

That’s part of the debate as all season we’re looking for your help to pick the best Town teams from each of the last five decades.

Each select side is divided into goalkeeper, right-back, left-back, centre-backs, right midfield, left midfield, central midfielders and strikers.

Every week we’ll give you a list of players to choose from for a specific position.

At the moment, we’re starting our pick of the 2000s, with the right-back the second to be selected.

There are six to pick from – Steve Jenkins, Thomas Heary, Aaron Hardy, Martyn Booty, Andy Holdsworth and Lee Peltier.

Choose one from the list who you felt was best and make your vote.

To vote, just click here.

Just place your choice and we’ll tell you who claimed the right-back place in the representative team in next week’s Final Whistle.

There’s also a panel for comments, so tell us your memories of your choice.

Last week we asked you to choose the best goalkeeper of the 2000s.

Top of the poll was Nico Vaesen, the Belgian star signed by Peter Jackson.

He took 72% of the votes with one supporter commenting: "He was solid all round. Alex Smithies will be better still, but not yet."

Another said of Vaesen: "He was a good shot stopper, he dealt with crosses, he was decisive and he even played like a sweeper to save his defence at times."

Fans have so far voted for their teams of the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s. You can see the finished teams chosen by Terriers followers here.
