A RARE glimpse behind the scenes is on offer tomorrow (Fri) for Town fans.
They are being invited to watch Stan Ternent’s new-look squad training on the Galpharm Stadium pitch – and then have a look at what goes on inside the Stadium complex.
Town will be throwing open its doors to the public for a special one-night-only event at the Stadium, which is completely free.
Doors open from 4.30pm with the highlight of the evening being a first team training session on the pitch. This will be watched from the Antich Stand and takes place between 5.30 and 6.30pm. Access to the Antich Stand will be through the turnstiles at the north end.
The training session will also be broadcast on the big screen and concessionary stands will be open for food and refreshments.
Fans will also be able to get a glimpse at other places in the stadium normally reserved for staff, players and VIPs – including the first team changing room, the physio’s room, the press conference room, the banqueting suite, the boardroom and the upper tier.
There will be a walkthrough tour in the Direct Golf Stand which will be open from 4.30pm, during and after the training session. Access to the tour will be gained through turnstiles 1-4 at the north end.
Younger fans will also get the chance to enjoy activities such as Football in the Community’s inflatable goals, face painters and a chance to look around the first team coach.
Town spokesman Alisdair Straughan said: “Chris Lucketti became the fourth new addition that manager Stan Ternent made to the Huddersfield Town squad last week, following hot on the heels of fellow defender Andy Butler, midfielder Jim Goodwin and striker Keigan Parker.
“You won’t have to wait long until you see them in action at the Galpharm – they are training on the pitch this coming Friday!”
The players are also promising to hold an autograph session for fans later in the new season.
