With the third anniversary of Huddersfield Town’s Championship play-off final victory on the horizon, the Huddersfield Town Foundation has a challenge for aspiring young sports writers.

On Monday, May 29, 2017, under David Wagner, the Terriers secured their first promotion to the Premier League with a penalty shoot-out victory over Reading at Wembley Stadium.

Captain Christopher Schindler’s winning penalty will forever be remembered amongst supporters, giving the club a place in the top-flight for the first time since 1972.

Being such a momentous day in the club’s history, the Town Foundation is asking junior supporters to revisit the occasion and write a short match report to mark the occasion.

They are looking for no more than 300 words, which will provide a fantastic opportunity to hone literacy skills from home.

The competition will be split into two age brackets (8-12 and 13-16) and some of the best will feature on the Town Foundation and Huddersfield Town websites (

They will also be published on The Yorkshire Post’s website, so your piece could reach a vast audience.

A traditional match report would focus on what happened on the pitch and post-match reaction from players and managers.

In addition to this, the Town Foundation is encouraging you to include some memories of the day from your perspective – whether you were watching from the stands at Wembley or on a television screen.

If you need to jog your memory on the events of the day, you can watch the whole 120-plus minutes on the Huddersfield YouTube (HTTV) channel.

To enter, submit a word document to [email protected] by 7pm on Thursday.
