Johnstone’s Trade has announced it will be sponsoring a special one-off charity shirt for Huddersfield Town FC next April.
The special magenta and white striped shirt, a distinct change from the club’s recognisable blue and white stripes, will be worn by its first team when they take on Birmingham City at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday 23 April 2016. It’s all in aid of the Town Foundation, a charity founded by Huddersfield Town Chairman Dean Hoyle to help improve the quality of life for young people in the local area.
Johnstone’s Trade, which has sponsored the Football League Trophy for the last decade, is sponsoring the initiative and its logo will feature prominently on the front of the shirt. Fans of the club can also get involved with a unique opportunity to have their names printed on the shirt with all those submitted used to make up the shirt’s vertical magenta stripe.
Huddersfield Town Chairman and Town Foundation Founder Dean Hoyle explained:
“This is a first for the Club during my Chairmanship and something that I’m very excited to offer as a unique opportunity for Town fans. Hopefully everyone will have great pride when the players run out in the shirt to face Birmingham City in 2016. Not only will it be a special day for the fans whose names are adorned on the players’ shirts, but it promises to raise great funds to allow the Town Foundation to continue its priceless work with young people and children in our community.
“I would also like to thank the team at PPG for its support of this initiative; without it, this unique opportunity for supporters would not be possible.”
Steve Pocock, General Manager of PPG Architectural Coatings UK Ltd, Johnstone’s parent company and sponsor of Huddersfield Town’s Canalside facility added: “The Town Foundation is a fantastic initiative which does a huge amount of excellent work for young people in the local community. We’ve been bringing colour to the beautiful game through our sponsorship of the Football League Trophy over the last ten years and I’m confident the specially designed eye-catching shirt, sponsored by Johnstone’s Paint, will do that for the Town Foundation too. We’re really proud to be involved and play our part in supporting the Town Foundation.”
