The FRE E partners hip sche me for educ ation establish ments in West Yo rkshire

A message from Dean Hoyle
Being a local man brought up in Morley and educated in Heckmondwike within the Yorkshire education system, and now Chairman of the Football Club, I can appreciate the important role sport can play in education and the development of young people. As a child growing up I have to admit that my attention and determination levels fluctuated at school but there was one topic which constantly excited me, in my case it was sport. Now as a proud parent and involved in football I see the positive role sport can play and with the uncertainty regarding funding in schools across the board, I am making it our aim to ensure we do all we can to give a helping hand. Our Schools Partnership is how we as a Club can help your school FREE of charge and how by working together everyone can succeed.

Dean Hoyle Chairman, Huddersfield Town
