CHRIS KEEN TO GROOM HIS TERRIERS
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.
