Popular Huddersfield Town fanzine Smile A While is back in print after a hiatus of three-years.
First published in 2016, Smile A While provides an independent platform for Town fans to share their opinions on every aspect of the club’s past, present, and future.
Priced at just £2, Issue 15 includes articles on the joys of returning to the terraces after lockdown, the iconic photographs of the old Cowshed taken in the 1980s and 1990s, the history of women’s football in Huddersfield, the construction of the Leeds Road stadium, and the story behind the song from which the fanzine takes its name. It also contains interviews with broadcaster Jonny Owen and Golcar United player Joe Skarz, as well as a quiz featuring guest Phil Senior, who was Town’s goalkeeper in the early 2000s.
Sellers will be outside the Gas Club and opposite the burger van on Stadium Way from 1:30pm on Saturday.
Commenting ahead of the weekend, founder Sean O’Toole said:
“It’s been a while—and a labour of love—but we’re glad to be back. Special thanks go to our contributors, especially Alex Langton, who did the design, and the Huddersfield Town Supporters’ Association, who also helped out.
“Matchday programmes aren’t what they used to be, so it’s important for fans to have a choice in what they read about their club. We’re proud to offer an independent perspective on Huddersfield Town that doesn’t involve tick boxes or restrictions.”
