We are delighted to announce our latest Pre-Season Friendly as our local neighbours Huddersfield Town! 

The Terriers will visit the Horsfall Community Stadium on Friday 14th July, with a Kick Off of 7:30pm. 

In recent years, Avenue have loaned in some of the up and coming talent from Town’s u18 to u23s, including Shane Maroodza and David Adewoju in the 22/23 season, and Isaac Marriott who originally joined on a loan in 2018, before being signed in August 2020 and later sold for an undisclosed fee to Altrincham in December 2021. 

Avenue first went head to head with Town back in September 1910, where we hosted a Division 2 game which ended 1-0 to the Terriers.

Our last recorded League or Cup game was on 26th September 1962, where Huddersfield took a 3-1 win in the League Cup.

Town also visited Bradford in our 2019/20 pre-season, which saw the sides play out a 2-2 draw. Goals came from Lewis Rathbone and Ryan Cresswell.
