Today we reveal the 14 Huddersfield Town greats chosen by fans to parade at The Pink Link Walkway of Legends.

Last month supporters were asked to vote for their 14 greatest players in blue and white stripes.

Examiner Sports Editor Mel Booth compiled a suggested top 100, but fans could vote for whoever they wished if their particular favourite had not been put forward.

The top 14 – chosen online with the Examiner and by writing to Huddersfield Town – are to feature on The Pink Link Walkway of Legends, which will mark the driveway into the club’s magnificent training complex at PPG Canalside off Leeds Road.

More than 10,000 votes were cast in total and some wonderful players have missed out on a place in the top 14 – so it really is an honour to be included.

The Walkway will officially be unveiled on a date to be chosen in the New Year, when fans will be able to go and see their favourites on giant posters.

Check our our gallery or the list below to see who made the final cut.

The Pink Link Walkway of Legends Voting

Numbers from Survey Monkey

 

Andy Booth

Top of the list was Andy Booth, the club’s current Ambassador, who scored 150 times for his hometown club in a career goal tally of 188 for Town, Sheffield Wednesday, England Under 21s and the Football League Under 21 representative side.

He was, without doubt, one of the most popular players ever to pull on a Town shirt and he never gave less than 100% in his two spells with the club, being part of the play-off promotion winning team against Bristol Rovers at Wembley in 1995.

Frank Worthington

Second in the poll was flamboyant striker Frank Worthington, who began his career with Town as a schoolboy signing in 1964 and was part of the Second Division Championship title team of 1970.

He led the attack in the top flight and went on to play for England in a colourful career which included spells at a myriad of clubs.

Denis Law

It’s significant that more than half a century since he left the club, Scotland legend Denis Law still collected the third highest number of votes from Town supporters.

Those who saw him make his debut under Bill Shankly and emerge as a world-class talent over the next few years at Leeds Road still talk about the impact he made – most had never seen anything like him.

Not surprisingly, when he was sold to Manchester City, it was for a then British record transfer fee of £55,000. Law, of course, went on to gain international fame with City, Torino in Italy and Manchester United, playing in the World Cup with his country and being inducted into their Hall of Fame.

Ray Wilson

It’s an England icon who is next in the list for The Pink Link Walkway of Legends – 1966 World Cup winner Ray Wilson.

One of the best-known players ever to pull on a Town shirt, he played 283 times for the club between 1952 and 1964, when he moved on to Everton.

He remains Town’s most capped England international while with the club, having played with the Three Lions 30 times while on the Leeds Road books.

Marcus Stewart

Fifth in the vote was a more modern-day hero, someone who became massively popular under the arches of the (now) John Smith’s Stadium – striker Marcus Stewart.

He signed from Bristol Rovers for a club record £1.2m and proved to be a brilliant marksman, netting 68 goals for the club in 160 appearances and earning a high-profile move to Ipswich Town, who he helped win promotion to the top flight.

His form at that level put him right on the edge of an England call-up as the goals continued to flow, with his skill and movement in the opposition penalty area earning him many plaudits nationally.

Mark Lillis

While ‘Stewy’ was a big hit in Huddersfield, so too was Mark Lillis, who completes our top six of Town legends to be featured along the entrance road to PPG Canalside.

Lillis displayed that never-say-die attitude which Town fans love and he featured in two promotion-winning teams under Mick Buxton, never failing to show whole-hearted commitment to the cause.

He netted 63 goals in 242 appearances and has since been a popular coach and caretaker manager at the club, where he is currently the successful and popular Academy Manager.

Peter Jackson

Another player to wear his heart on his sleeve was seventh in the vote – Peter Jackson.

A talented and fearless centre-back, Jacko became an instant hit when he signed from Bradford City, was quickly made captain of the club and enjoyed a great relationship with the fans for his winning mentality.

He demanded pride in the shirt, too, in his two spells as manager – leading the club to ‘The Great Escape’ in 1997-98.

Jimmy Glazzard

One of the greats of the 1940s and 50s, Jimmy Glazzard, earns his place on The Pink Link Walkway of Legends as the second-highest goalscorer in club history.

Glazzard, a magnificent header of the ball, piled up 153 goals in his 11 years leading the attack and his four goals in the 8-2 victory over Everton in 1953 will never be forgotten. To be fair, nor will his partnership with wingman Vic Metcalfe, who was one of those who missed out on making the top 14.

Jimmy Nicholson

Northern Ireland midfielder Jimmy Nicholson, an influential and skilful personality who captained the club to the top flight in 1970, is next on the list.

He was capable of dominating matches and commanded great respect, earning the most international caps of any player while with Town.

Steve Kindon

Steve Kindon, the powerful former Burnley and Wolves frontman who was a key signing by Buxton for the Fourth Division championship-winning side, comes into our list at No10.

Loved by the fans for his willingness to chase lost causes, he was a big character in two promotion-winning squads and later became just as popular off the pitch, being commercial manager, helping take on the Young Terriers, being central in the early days of the Patrons and organising the famous fans’ walks.

Jordan Rhodes

Two stars of the club’s recent past are next among the Legends – Jordan Rhodes and Peter Clarke.

Rhodes, of course, scored 40 goals in his final season before a club record £8m transfer to Blackburn Rovers and he was part of the team which clinched promotion back to the Championship in 2012, in the Wembley play-off final against Sheffield United.

Peter Clarke

Captain of that team was Clarke, who left only at the end of last season after five years of distinguished service in blue and white stripes – and he will always remain highly regarded in supporters’ affections.

The final two players on the Walkway are both icons of the club.

Malcolm Brown

Firstly, right-back Malcolm Brown was an exciting part of Buxton’s successful sides of the 1970s and early 1980s and, after two years at Newcastle United, returned to resume his popular mantle in the No2 shirt.

One of the best crossers of the ball ever to play for the club, Brown holds the club record for consecutive appearances, playing in 259 straight matches from September 1978 and May 1983.

Billy Smith

And finally we come to Billy Smith.

No-one has played more matches for Town than Smith and no-one is ever likely to – he featured 572 times between December 1913 and February 1934.

In that time, he scored 126 goals, including the one which gave Town the FA Cup in 1922.

He won three consecutive English League titles and was also an England international, so who better to round of The Pink Link Walkway of Legends?

For the record, the fans’ top 14 who will feature are: Andy Booth, Frank Worthington, Denis Law, Ray Wilson, Marcus Stewart, Mark Lillis, Peter Jackson, Jimmy Glazzard, Jimmy Nicholson, Steve Kindon, Jordan Rhodes, Peter Clarke, Malcolm Brown and Billy Smith.
