Huddersfield Town Football Club’s £5m Canalside project, which will provide the club with new training facilities, has been backed by ‘The Rec Club’.
The deal will see the Npower League One club become the new owners of the Syngenta Sports & Fitness Club as the club gained a 98.3% backing in an Extraoridinary General Meeting, with Huddersfield chief executive Nigel Clibbens hailing the significance of the agreement.
"The acceptance of the Canalside proposal is the biggest news for the long term success of the football club since the move to our new ground in 1994.
"It is also fantastic news for the existing members of the sports and fitness club as well as the community. Everyone cannot wait to get the project underway and we will be working closely with the members to deliver a top-class facility for all parties."
Rec Club chairman Carl Sykes added: "Our members have backed the proposals. The Managing Committee has worked hard to secure a future for Rec Club members from a position of limited bargaining power. Success of Canalside will now be down to Huddersfield Town and members working together."
The club has also extended its partnership with local Property Agents Oxley Property.
"We're delighted to continue the partnership" commented Mark Davies, Business Development Manager at the Football Club.
"They've been fantastic to us over the last year and with their reputation growing throughout the region we are really happy that they want to continue their involvement with the club."
"They've also gone that extra mile and made a bespoke offering for Town supporters who are looking to sell or rent out a property and we'd urge anyone wanting to do so to get in touch with them."
