Huddersfield Town celebrated their promotion to the Championship with an open-top bus parade through the town
The Terriers claimed victory over Sheffield United at the weekend, when, after a goalless draw at Wembley the Blades keeper Steve Simonsen missed a penalty.
The bus took the players from the Galpharm Stadium to the town hall for a civic reception.
Manager Simon Grayson and chairman Dean Hoyle chatted to the crowd from the town halls balcony and thanked fans for all their support.
Grayson took over Huddersfield in February after being sacked by Leeds.
In a statement on the club's website, Grayson said: "People talk about promotion and I believe the best way to achieve it is by coming to Wembley and winning.
"You can see how ecstatic the supporters and players were, everyone has worked very hard.
"The club deserves to be in the Championship. The chairman has huge ambitions and his enthusiasm was one of the biggest reasons in my decision to join the club.
"I am delighted that we have achieved his aim."
