A CAMPAIGN to house Fartown Supporters Club memorabilia at the Galpharm Stadium is gaining momentum.
A new home for a large number of Huddersfield Rugby League Club treasures needs to be found, after the decision to close the supporters club building on Spaines Road next month.
Several plans are in the pipeline, including a permanent display at the George Hotel - the birthplace of rugby league - or the Tolson Museum.
But moving the bulk of the memorabilia into the planned new development at the front of the Galpharm main entrance is proving a popular option, with Neil Shuttleworth championing the cause.
"As soon as it became clear the Supporters Club was facing the threat of closure, we began to consider what to do with the many items of memorabilia," said Shuttleworth, a former Fartown director, member of the Fartown Supporters Club and life member of the Giants.
"We aren't short of potential new homes, but wouldn't it be marvellous if that new home could be at the Galpharm?
"Housing it there would enable a great many people to see it on a regular basis, with a matchday being an obvious example.
"Fartown Supporters Club has been home to some very special club mementoes over the years and it needs to be moved to an appropriate place.
"I'm sure many will feel that Huddersfield Rugby League Club's new home provides the perfect option."
Items of great significance include old team photographs of famous Fartown teams and a Great Britain Test cap given to Fartown legend Harold Wagstaff.
