Description

Of Amos, ‘Erbert and Friends; Flying High with Huddersfield Town is a book in which the author combines the fiction of conversation with historical facts to provide a fan’s eye view of a remarkable football club. It begins with the founding of Huddersfield Town, in 1906, and its brave survival in a rugby league stronghold, despite the dastardly endeavours of Leeds United to close the club down via what was close to being association football’s first ever franchise deal. It describes the club’s halcyon years between the two World Wars; twenty years in which the Huddersfield Town were ‘Thrice Champions’ of the Football League, runners up for the title on three occasions, won the FA Cup and appeared in a total of five finals; a period of success galvanised by football’s first ever great manager, Herbert Chapman, and overseen by the club’s visionary chairman, Sir Amos Brook Hirst. The book deals with seven post war decades and analyses a series of milestone moments which contributed to a spectacular fall from grace, before ending on an impressive note as a Terrier like renaissance over the last ten years has seen Huddersfield Town restored to English footballs top flight.
