CHRIS POW­ELL is look­ing to make Hud­der­s­field the go-to club for pro­gres­sion after tak­ing the reins at the John Smith’s Sta­dium.

The ex-Charl­ton man­ager took the role after Mark Robins left just one game into the sea­son.

And Pow­ell, who turns 45 to­mor­row, will now look to take his squad fur­ther in their ca­reer after he won pro­mo­tion to the Cham­pi­onship with Charl­ton in 2012.

Pow­ell said:“I am ex­tremely ex­cited and proud to be the new Hud­der­s­field Town man­ager. I know the squad well and I am look­ing for­ward to get­ting out onto the train­ing field with them. There is a lot of po­ten­tial in the squad. “I have kept my eye on Hud­der­s­field and their progress and with­out pick­ing out play­ers, there are a num­ber who will grow with the team and per­form at a high stan­dard.”

And while there’s one man­ager com­ing back, this week has also seen a gaffer exit stage left with Gra­ham Ka­vanagh sacked from his job at League Two Carlisle.

Neil Aspin, from Non-League FC Hal­i­fax Town, is among the favourites for the job along with ex-Northamp­ton Town, Not­ting­ham For­est and Hiber­nian man­ager Colin Calder­wood.
