Hud­der­s­field ap­point ‘No1 can­di­date’ Cowley

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Football -

Hud­der­s­field Town have an­nounced the ap­point­ment of Danny Cowley as their new man­ager. Cowley, 40, leaves League One side Lin­coln City and will be joined by his brother and as­sis­tant, Nicky.

Cowley re­places Jan Siew­ert, who was sacked on Aug 16 af­ter Hud­der­s­field made a poor start to the season and crashed out of the Carabao Cup, beaten by Lin­coln.

Hud­der­s­field agreed com­pen­sa­tion with Lin­coln, with the Cowley broth­ers set to take charge for the first time in Sun­day’s home match against Sheffield Wed­nes­day.

Phil Hodgkin­son, the chair­man, said: “From the out­set, David Webb [head of foot­ball op­er­a­tions] and I knew how im­por­tant this next ap­point­ment is for the club. Our re­search, due dili­gence and work re­sulted in a shortlist of four can­di­dates, and Danny Cowley was No1.”

The Cowley broth­ers led Lin­coln to the English Foot­ball League in 2017 and won League Two last term. In an open let­ter to Lin­coln fans ex­plain­ing their de­ci­sion, the pair said they had a “burn­ing am­bi­tion to chal­lenge our­selves at the high­est pos­si­ble level”.
