Wigan Warriors star Harry Smith aiming to be quids in for local charity Joseph’s Goal!

Local charity Joseph’s Goal is hoping to be quids in this year – thanks to Warriors young gun Harry Smith!

Auto Time Systems Northern Ltd, specialising in school lockdown systems, time & attendance clocking in & access control solutions based in Appley Bridge, Wigan, have pledged to hand over £100 for every try scored by Smith in 2023, as well as £10 for every goal he kicks.

Considering he crossed the line seven times in 2022, and booted a whopping 94 goals, the amount of money raised could be well into four figures!

Considering he crossed the line seven times in 2022, and booted a whopping 94 goals, the amount of money raised could be well into four figures!

“We’re looking to raise as much funds as possible to fund research into NKH,” said Smith, a former England Academy captain.

“I’m an ambassador for Joseph’s Goal, which I became involved with through my girlfriend, Chloe’s grandad, who’s a trustee of the charity, and a cousin of Joseph’s grandad.

“It’s a family friend who is sponsoring me, and it’s a great cause for a great young lad.

“There’s a bit of pressure maybe on the goalkicking side, but I don’t score too many tries.

“Hopefully the lads will put me over for a few more as it’s for such a good cause!

“My part is the easy part, just doing my job, it’s the people in the background for the charity and the family who do the hard work.

“Anything that can be done to get the charity out there, it’s one we’ll try to get as much support behind.”

Warriors have supported the charity since it was formed in 2012, after Joseph Kendrick was born with the condition, which affects one in 60,000 new-borns.

They even had the Joseph’s Goal logo on the front of their jerseys during their away matches against Catalans Dragons in 2018.

Smith’s cash-for-tries-and-goals incentive was the brainchild of Jane Kelley – joint managing director Auto Time Systems Northern Ltd, along with her husband Simon – who is a childhood friend of Harry’s girlfriend’s mum, Wendy.

“We are proud and excited to be associated with Joseph’s Goal,” said Jane. “And we hope our sponsorship will make a significant contribution to finding a cure for NKH.

“As Warriors fans with family connections with Harry, we thought this sponsorship format would perhaps generate further interest and support for Joseph’s Goal.”

Warriors coach Matty Peet is backing Smith to keep the fundraising total ticking over throughout the campaign.

“I think it’s fantastic what Jane and her business are doing there,” he said. “And it’s a great bit of interest for Harry.

“It’s always nice when he’s posting points, but we’ll do anything we can do to support Joseph.

“It’s a fantastic charity and he’s a fantastic lad, who is close to all of our hearts here.Warriors supported the Joseph’s Goal charity during their trips to Catalans in 2018

“I think it will be a great story for us throughout the year, and hopefully Harry can raise some money.”

Emma Kendrick, Joseph’s mum and a trustee of the charity, added: “We would like to thank Jane and Simon for this generous sponsorship partnership.

“All of the money we raise goes to NKH research undertaken by Dr Nick Greene at UCL, who is making massive strides thanks to wonderful gestures such as this.”

We Are Open – Why Not Talk To Us About Our Contactless Clocking In & Home Worker Clocking In Solutions

Auto Time Systems are back to business as normal
for support, maintenance and system help and sales and queries.

We have just launched our new computerised home worker software which allows users to request home working dates.

Our mobile software then allows your employees to clock in and out from home or remotely, but the most important thing that all the time and attendance hours from office and home working will be collated together to ensure the correct payments of hours worked and overtime or flexi time balances are correct (and you can geo-locate them if you need to know where the clocking took place.)

Also In the event of your fire alarm sounding our time and attendance systems automatically create an email fire roll call list of who’s in i.e staff & visitors.

But all the home workers are excluded from the fire roll call printout / fire evacuation to improve & simplify the module count

We also have a new contactless Biometric face recognition terminal which are completely contactless, which measure your employees temperatures as they arrive to clock in and if they have a high temperature then the clocking in is rejected by the terminal and clocking screen display turns red to advice.

Reduce Costs & Make A Safer Workplace –  Our face recognition with skin temperature detection terminals reduce your staff administration costs as you don’t need to additional staff to take and manage everyone’s temperature as they arrive at work.

Biometric Face & Temperature Case Study


“Glasgow Taxis Limited has been proudly serving the City of Glasgow for over 60 years in our distinctive and iconic ‘Hackney’ cabs, as the only transport provider operating 24 hours per day, 365 days of the year.  Our comprehensive range of services are delivered from our fleet of 735 taxis, the largest in the UK outside London, by our 712 drivers ably supported by a vastly experienced team of 75 staff and servicing more than 2 million customers a year.

Our company uses the latest technology, from dispatch system, fleet telecommunications, credit card terminals, and internally, electronic time management for wages calculations and forward planning for staffing.


We have engaged for many years with Auto time Systems Ltd to ensure the very latest in time management technology is available. With the advent of COVID19 in 2020 we also considered an extension to building security and staff safety while employees are on site. Over the years the time management system has proved invaluable for monitoring staff clocking’s, statistical reports and forward planning. In November 2020 we installed the latest system incorporating facial recognition and temperature control as part of our COVID19 risk assessment for the building. Immediate benefits were clear


  1. Personnel ‘clock in’ without having to make physical contact with surfaces thus reducing the possibility of cross-contamination.
  2. Temperature controls are linked to security doors to ensure that any member of staff showing signs of high temperature cannot enter the building.

The system is easy to use, efficient and support from Autotime Systems Ltd is quick and professional. On behalf of Glasgow Taxis Ltd I would recommend the system to anyone considering such a move.”
