My Grandfather the Football Star

This is my Grandad, circa 1935, on the first day of his trials with Huddersfield Town, an English football club in West Yorkshire.

Nicknamed “The Terriers,” the club plays in blue and white vertically striped shirts and white shorts.

He was actually offered professional terms with the team, but his Mum would not let him go as it would have meant less time to work with the family business.

His name was John Derek Howard and he worked for the majority of his life as Inspector for the Lancashire Police on the Vice and Murder units. ~shared by @johnnybad1986
