The Supporters Club Committee would like to sincerely thank the following fans who, on Saturday, successfully undertook an 18.5-mile trek from the MBI Shay Stadium to Guiseley: –
Stuart Alderson (a k a ‘Freddy The Fox’)
It’s fair to say that, at the start of the walk at 07:00 the conditions were very difficult indeed with snow falling and ice on certain roads. There was also, of course, no guarantee at that stage that the game would be on! Ultimately, the walkers were rewarded with better weather and, obviously, a match to watch!
Huge thanks to Phil Knott for organising every aspect of the walk including the much needed (!) pub break at the ‘Noble Comb’ near Saltaire.
At this stage, the Supporters Club is not sure how much money will ultimately be raised but a special mention here to Rob Brown and Peter Noble who both kindly made particularly generous Sponsored Walk donations to the Supporters Club prior to kick-off at Guiseley. Post-match, Rob has made some very droll references to the Sponsored Walk in his latest customary excellent ‘Travellers Tales’ article. Well worth a read!
As Rob mentions in his piece, there is still time to sponsor the Supporters Club in respect of this initiative. Please donate either via the usual match day bucket collections or, alternatively, send a cheque payable to Halifax Town Supporters Club to: –

There is also a facility to donate by bank transfer: –

Up the Shaymen!
