Ian Lawrence, the HTSA Chair, paid a visit to Huddersfield Town Ladies Football Club.
Representatives from the ladies club were special guests at the HTSA annual meeting and, as a ‘thank you’, Ian was there to hand over a sponsorship cheque to Sarah Dobby.
He was then treated to a real goal feast as the ladies went on to beat Dronfield 17-1, with Sarah getting her name on the scoresheet.
This Sunday, January 17, HTLFC will be playing Bradford City – so why not get along to the ‘Mitton Group Stadium’ (BD2 1PN) and give the Town Ladies your support?
On Tuesday night, in the game against Charlton Athletic, the Town ‘lads’ did their best to emulate the free-scoring ‘lasses’.
A 5-0 scoreline, David Wagner’s mix of uninhibited youth and his unorthodox tactics really got supporters buzzing with expectation.
Besides the feelgood, ‘psychological’ benefits most academics define sporting success in terms of skill, speed, stamina and suppleness.
There is no doubt that all five S’s are now in evidence, each week, at the John Smith’s Stadium.
However, as social media went into overdrive, many Town fans recognised there is still a crucial sixth ‘S’ missing from the David Wagner formula for Success. “Support!”
On Facebook Matthew Balmforth wanted to know, “Where were all the Huddersfield Town supporters tonight?” He also asked, “If Wagner’s gengenpressing, ultimate fitness, fast, attacking, sexy-type of football can’t put bums on seats then how do we expect to strengthen the team with even more quality players?”
Encouragement from the terracing does make a massive difference.
Let us ALL get behind the lads and help them to find that extra bit of “energy”.
