Inside Your Matchday Programme: Huddersfield Town

Take a look inside this weekend's Special Remembrance Edition of the Matchday Programme

1 November 2019

This weekend's edition is inspired by the 1939-40 season, a campaign expunged by the outbreak of World War Two after only three games. Here's what to expect in Saturday's Matchday Programme.

"Jack Holliday netted Brentford’s final pre-war goal at Griffin Park in a 1-0 win over Huddersfield on Saturday 2 September. The day before, Germany had invaded Poland. The day after, War was declared."

Brentford Remembers those we lost in conflicts around the world, while Rob Jex and Greville Waterman take us back to 1939 for our fixture in focus.


"Our feet are firmly on the ground, we can’t relax, we have to keep working hard. We’re doing this one game at a time and keeping our focus on each opponent as they come."

Thomas Frank welcomes you to Griffin Park as The Bees go for their fourth consecutive win in the league for the first time since 2015.


"The surviving War Diary of the 1st Leicestershire’s allow us to follow Harry’s progress from October 1917 to June 1918. The most poignant piece is from June 1918. The Battalion, on 6 June, were on the front Line."

Paul Briers uncovers the life of Private Harry Dutfield, whose story was previously thought to be lost.

Brentford Women with Sophie Troth: "As a young player, scoring the winning goal in the County Cup Final to win a treble that year was an amazing achievement. It was certainly one of the best moments in football for me."

My Brentford Story with Jonathan Burchill: "I would’ve loved to have seen the team of the 1930s who reached the top-flight just 15 years after joining the league."

Business Matters from Mike Sullivan on this weekend's sponsors: "His Mosquito was damaged beyond repair but his skills as a pilot meant that he and his navigator escaped the wreck unharmed."


Also inside: Christian Tue Jensen speaks to Ben Strange about life in the B Team; Bill Gorman in profile; Nick Bruzon's fan column looks into a bumpy start for VAR, plus Match Action from Millwall, Swansea and QPR.

That plus 12 pages on our visitors Huddersfield Town: Fan Q&A with Richard Kosmala, Steven Chicken's opposition preview, Four in Focus and Dan Long's Story So Far.
