Hey Junior Bluebirds! This weekend we're back at CCS to face Huddersfield Town! I can't wait to see you all backing the boys on Saturday. Your support this season has been awesome!

This is the first home match we've played against Huddersfield Town since November 2016! With that in mind let's have a look at some facts about both teams!

* During that period, the Terriers won three consecutive First Division titles between 1924-1926!

* Our visitors' top goalscorer this season is Mathias Jørgensen! The Danish centre-back has scored three goals for the club so far in the campaign.
