Huddersfield Town says 'thanks' to Mark Robins

Huddersfield Town manager Mark Robins leaves the club 'by mutual consent ' and just one day in to the football league season.

The Terriers lost their opening match of the season 4-0 at home to Bournemouth and conceded a goal after just 26 seconds.

Former Barnsley manager Robins then agreed to leave after a meeting with the club's board.

Mark has put his all into the job over the past 16 months and has made a big contribution to the Club. He arrived at the Club at a difficult time and immediately impacted to keep us in the Championship. Mark’s approach to this has been refreshing. He has always put the Club before himself and worked tirelessly on the training ground to change our way of playing and we have seen that come to fruition. Mark will be someone that I personally, and we as a Club, will always remain in contact with.

– Huddersfield Town Chairman Dean Hoyle

In its statement, Huddersfield Town said it would 'like to place on record its thanks to Mark and wish him all the best for the future.'

Assistant Manager Steve Thompson and First Team Coach Steve Eyre will take charge of training today, assisted by the existing First Team technical staff.
