HTSA reported last week that the Independent Football Ombudsman, Professor Fraser, was in agreement with HTSA and believed that the supporters who had travelled to Blackpool had a sound case for compensation.

In response to the newspaper article a number of supporters contacted HTSA congratulating the Association for the stance it has taken and offering further help and support.

We are especially grateful to those Town fans who are employed within the legal professions and who have offered their services, and advice, free of charge.

There was also feedback from supporters who had attended the game and who wished to point out that ‘the money’ isn’t important but ‘the principle’ most certainly is.

They even went on to say that if any ticket money were to be refunded they would like to donate their share to an appropriate charity.

Some charities have already been suggested but we would like to hear of any other worthy causes that you may have close to your hearts.

Is it too much to hope that Karl Oyston will see such a magnanimous gesture from the Huddersfield faithful for what it is and endorse the Professor’s recommendations with an equally magnanimous gesture to the Blackpool supporters?

HTSA will be looking at all the options at the Board Meeting on 21st January 2016.

Before this, on 19th January, HTSA representatives will be meeting with officials from HTAFC.

If you have any issues that you would like to be raised please contact Ian Lawrence through the HTSA-online website or Trev Whitehead (details follow).

This will begin at 19:30 immediately prior to the HTSA Board Meeting. The main purpose of this meeting will be to adopt the new set of rules recommended by Supporters Direct.

It will also provide a good opportunity for supporters to discuss and consider any legal process that they wish to follow regarding the Blackpool game.

With today being New Year’s Eve we would like to thank Huddersfield Town for the sensitive and thoughtful way in which they allowed supporters to pay their respects to relatives and friends who have sadly passed away during 2015.

Before last week’s game, against Preston North End, supporters from both clubs joined players and match officials in a minute’s applause. Pictures of thirty-three loved ones were printed in the Boxing Day match programme and names were read out whilst the photographs were displayed on the stadium’s big-screen.

As well as looking back at the previous twelve months it is also important to look forward and HTSA would like to wish all Town fans (and, indeed, all readers of this column) a Happy New Year! Thanks to David Wagner Town fans, in particular, have much to look forward to. The on-field transformation taking place is producing entertaining performances and hopefully the results will soon follow on a more consistent basis.

Saturday is an ideal opportunity to demonstrate your support by filling the away end at the Macron (formerly Reebok) Stadium.

Don’t miss what promises to be a galvanising start to 2016.
