HTSA Heritage Presents An Evening with the 101 Club
Fancy a unique insight into the story HUDDERSFIELD TOWN’s record-breaking 1979-80 season as told by Mick Buxton, the players themselves, and author of 'The 101 Club', Rob Stewart? Well, you're in luck, because they'll all be at PPG Canalside on Thursday, 30th November, from 7PM.
There will also be a raffle and collection with all proceeds going to the Town Foundation.
The event is free for everyone and you can get tickets at Eventbrite here.
"From hilarious to heart-breaking, The 101 Club tells the tale of an epic journey from the club’s darkest nights to one of its greatest occasions and beyond. Almost 40 years on, the legacy of these local heroes lives on – had it not been for their exhilarating exploits, Town’s Premier League dreams would be unfulfilled.
Manager Mick Buxton’s misfits and cast-offs joined forces to capture the hearts of a generation of Town fans – including current club owner Dean Hoyle.
Scoring a club-record 101 goals, the Fourth Division title was dramatically clinched in the final moments of the 1979-80 season with a never-to-be-forgotten win over Hartlepool in front of a jam-packed Cowshed.
The 101 Club is a warts-and-all story of how Buxton changed the entire culture of a place that was more holiday camp than football club and includes:
- Foreward by Dean Hoyle
- Exclusive interviews with Town legends and forgotten heroes
- Interviews with the manager and all 16 players
- Special reflections from Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman
- Interviews with so-called ‘Wags’
- Fans’ perspectives
- The view from behind-the-scenes
- Never-seen-before photographs
- Absorbing match reports
- Essential facts and figures
Not only does The 101 Club re-live the highs and lows of football through the eyes of Buxton and his players, it also provides a rare insight into the lives of lower-league footballers and loved ones before Sky Sports money revolutionised the sport.
It is essential reading for anyone who cares about Huddersfield and Huddersfield Town."
