On this day: Town become Thrice Champions

On this day in 1926, Huddersfield Town’s comfortable 3-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers at Leeds Road clinched the league title for Cecil Potter’s side.

The victory came courtesy of goals from Clem Stephenson, who would go on to be a future manager of Town, Alex Jackson and Huddersfield Town’s record appearance holder Billy Smith.

Although it has been 91 years since this historic season, it is important to embrace, acknowledge and celebrate such a great achievement which only a handful of English football clubs have ever embraced.

It cannot be understated how big of an achievement it was when Huddersfield Town became the first English side to win three consecutive league titles.

A feat that has only been replicated by some of English football’s largest clubs: Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool.

Today was the day that Huddersfield Town wrote themselves into the record books as one of the greatest sides to play in English football.
