Amongst the entertainment was a bouncy castle, human football, soak your manager, penalty shootout, barbecue, refreshments and much more including a visit from Huddersfield Town mascot Terry the Terrier.

Richard Brearley, under 10 and 17’s manager, said the event was the most successful one the club has held.

“The day was a massive success. The club is aimed at all age groups and abilities and we are looking to set up more girls teams as we believe it is all about inclusion at the club.

“Plans are all in place for the 3G weather pitch to be built and we are always looking to move the club forward.”
