'We just want answers to our Town questions'
Supporters' 4,000 leaflet blitz
Die-hard Huddersfield Town fans have voiced fears about the club's finances.
A group of about 20 supporters handed out 4,000 leaflets highlighting their worries to fans at last Saturday's home game against Brighton.
And they plan to do the same again tomorrow, before Town's Galpharm Stadium clash with Scunthorpe United.
The leaflets pose questions about Town's finances in relation to rugby league club Huddersfield Giants, Huddersfield Sporting Pride - the umbrella organisation for both clubs - and stadium development company KSDL.
The questions relate to issues including the formula governing how much rent each club pays KSDL to use the stadium; details of Town's income, expenses and debts; and how takings from pitchside advertising and executive boxes are spent.
The leaflet was issued in response to a statement by Ken Davy, owner of Town and the Giants, after angry Town fans staged a demonstration following the club's home defeat against Yeovil at the end of September.
Many fans believe that the Giants take priority over Town at the stadium - a charge Mr Davy strenuously denies.
Marcus Middleton, a spokesman for the supporters, said the 20-strong group had decided to distribute the leaflets because they felt many fans did not understand the club's relationship with the Giants, Huddersfield Sporting Pride and KSDL.
He said questions in the leaflet had not been fully answered by the chairman's September statement or in face-to-face meetings between Mr Davy, stadium bosses and official supporters' groups.
Mr Middleton stressed: "We are not revolutionaries and we don't want Ken Davy out. We just want answers to our questions.
"There is nothing wrong with asking them and we hope that after reading the leaflet more fans will email or write to Mr Davy asking these questions."
In a statement stadium managing director Ralph Rimmer said: "I feel Huddersfield Town as a club is one of the most open, professional sports clubs I have ever been involved in. That is down to the attitude of the chairman, in particular, and the board.
"Ken demonstrates time and again his passion for Huddersfield and the huge integrity with which he conducts all his businesses.
"Time and again Ken and the board have answered all these questions and queries. He made a very clear and concise statement covering all the issues at the end of September."
Mr Rimmer added: "The board will continue to be available at Patrons' meetings and other forums.
"But answering questions week after week is not constructive and does not help the progress of the club."
