Huddersfield Town's 1911-12 campaign was a season which saw Town's Football League adventure be cut short after only 2 seasons. After only just escaping the threat of closure, Town finished in 17th place, but fortunately Gainsborough Trinity failed re-election and Town survived.

Review[edit]

Following their first full season in the Football League, Town under Dick Pudan were hoping to rise up the table to try to establish themselves as possible promotion candidates. However, promotion was never a realistic possibility with inconsistency proving to be Town's downfall in the season. This coupled with Town's off-field finances proved too much for the team to take and Town finished 17th place.
