A PLAQUE marking Huddersfield Town’s old Leeds Road centre spot has gone missing again.
The specially-made metal plaque was reported missing from the car park near B&Q over the weekend.
It comes a year after the damaged plaque was found by Town fans .
Steve King, chairman of the Huddersfield Town Supporters’ Association, said: “Obviously we want it back, there’s been a lot of blood, sweat and tears in that area and that needs to be commemorated.
“After what happened last year I hope a Town fan will have found it and taken it after seeing it had come loose.”
Six months ago the plaque was returned to the scene of some of Town’s greatest moments.
The plaque, set into the tarmac at the Leeds Road Retail Park, was damaged in May and rescued by fans Martin Horner and son Christopher who handed it into the reception at the John Smith’s Stadium.
It was repaired and restored and placed back on the centre spot last December.
But that wasn’t the first time the plaque had disappeared.
It was stolen in August 2000 and recovered after an appeal in the Examiner.
Town’s most famous fan Sir Patrick Stewart officially re-laid it a year later, watched by 200 people.
Mr King added: “When it was replaced by Capita (agents for the site) we thought it was secure.
“I don’t know what the answer for a permanent solution is. I want to see that plaque back and then think if there’s an answer.”
Huddersfield Town and stadium bosses said the plaque had not been handed in to them.
Qassim Hall was driving through the car park on Saturday and saw it on a pavement and now regrets not taking it for safe keeping.
The Examiner asked Capita Symonds, agent for the land owners, if they’d located the centre spot. No-one has yet responded.
Several shops in the retail park also said no-one had handed it in.
