Huddersfield Town have announced the appointment of Danny Cowley as the club's new manager

He will be joined at Huddersfield Town by his brother and Assistant Manager Nicky.

The duo was identified by Chairman Phil Hodgkinson and Head of Football Operations David Webb as the Club’s first choice for this appointment after an extensive and detailed search.

Compensation has been agreed with their previous club Lincoln City and the Cowley brothers will begin their work with the Terriers in preparation for the Sheffield Wednesday game.

Huddersfield Town Chairman explained:

I am delighted to be able to welcome Danny and Nicky Cowley to Huddersfield Town today. “Danny Cowley's track record is there for all to see – he has led his previous teams to five promotions and several cup successes – and our character references revealed a man who is one of the most detailed managers around; meticulous in his preparation, and highly regarded by his peers.
