Match Of The Past: Huddersfield Town
We continue our series of video highlights of the clubs in the Football League Championship today with Huddersfield Town. Three times champions of England in the 1920s under the managership of Herbert Chapman, we kick off with a curio from a little later in the clubs history and a recording of their player Alex Jacksons preview of the 1930 FA Cup Final against the club that Chapman left Huddersfield to manage, Arsenal. The club went into decline after the war, however, and television appearances became somewhat rare. Our second match sees Huddersfield entertaining Luton Town at a snow-bound Leeds Road in January 1973.
We then skip forward to the 1990s for three matches from that decade. First up is arguably he greatest come-back in the entire history of the club, from an away match against Bury from 1991 and a match that saw the club go four goals to nil down before coming back to earn a draw. Next we follow the club to Wembley for a then Second Division – now League One – play-off final against Bristol Rovers in 1995, at the end of their first season at the Galpharm Stadium. Finally from the 1990s, we have a match against Manchester City from 1997. Huddersfield had lost at Maine Road by ten goals to one exactly a decade earlier, but they won this match with a fine individual goal. Our last match comes from the start of the 2004/05 season, and is a home league match against Hull City.
