Josh Ruffels became the 1,000th player to make a competitive first team appearance for Huddersfield Town as the Terriers beat Blackburn 3-2 at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday night.
Founded in 1908, Town were the first club to win the First Division three times in a row, back in the 1920s. Many great players have pulled on the blue and white stripes over the years and now that tally has reached the landmark 1,000.
Ruffels, 27, who was brought in from Oxford United in the summer, will always have this milestone connected to his name.
The left-back came on as an 87th minute substitute replacing Danel Sinani to add extra defensive cover to the team as they looked to see out the victory against the Lancashire club.
Alongside this milestone the Huddersfield Town Supporters’ Association are trying to raise a £1,000 for the Huddersfield Town Foundation.
The Foundation strives to improve the lives of people across the Kirklees area. It runs healthy breakfast clubs at schools across the district and also hosts a targeted programme to get young people engaged in sport and works with people with mental health issues and those at risk of isolation.
