Brighouse Juniors U10 midfielder Jack Green was Huddersfield Town’s mascot for their Sky Bet Championship away game at Doncaster Rovers last Saturday.

The St Andrews Junior School pupil took his place in the line up with Town’s goalkeeper Alex Smithies and was accompanied on the day by his proud parents, Mickey, a lifelong Town fan, and Kelly.

Jack, who has been following the Terriers since he was four-years-old, has been a season ticket holder with his parents for the past three years.

Kelly, who works at St Andrews Infants School, said they had enjoyed their day at the Keepmoat Stadium despite the 2-0 reverse and had been very well looked after by the Doncaster Rovers officials.

“Jack has been a mascot at a Town home game but this was his first away game,” said his mum whose other son, Nathan,13, is not a football player or fan.

The Terriers seemed to lose shape and composure as Halifax pegged the score back to 3-3 and only Bradley Atkinson’s athletic saves prevented more goals for the visitors.
