THE Huddersfield Town Study Centre was the venue for a meeting of representatives from a number of Supporters Trusts in the Yorkshire Region.
Attending, in addition to ourselves, were Bradford City, Halifax Rugby League, Hull City, Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday.
We clearly support different teams (even different codes!) but we have much more in common and the meeting was a chance to share ideas and experiences.
The venue was appropriate because one of the common threads is the objective of increased community integration.
Here perhaps Rugby League leads the way and it was interesting to hear of the projects under way in Halifax.
It was also interesting to hear the success story from Halifax of a united front by the two Trusts - one for each code - whereby they were able to persuade Calderdale Council to reverse a decision to sell the shared ground at The Shay.
Of course we don't have that particular problem, in that football at the Galpharm is assured until 2143, but the two codes in Huddersfield do share the fact that neither club has any ownership of the stadium (as their shares have been transferred to a holding company).
Is this good or bad? Have we lost a valuable asset or been protected from possible further debt?
Time will tell, but this Supporters Trust will continue to monitor the situation and to press for more information.
As a last-minute reminder, do try to come along tonight to the Open meeting (Panasonic Suite, 7.30) with guest speaker Alan Sykes.
