FORMER Concord Rangers boss Danny Cowley has been unveiled as the new manager of Championship side Huddersfield Town.

Cowley will be joined by brother and assistant manager Nicky as he takes over from Jan Siewert, who was sacked last month after the Terriers made a poor start to the new season and also crashed out of the Carabao Cup.

The former FitzWimarc School teachers take charge after a compensation package was agreed between Huddersfield and Lincoln City, where the Cowleys won two promotions.

Huddersfield chairman Phil Hodgkinson said: “From the outset, (head of football operations) David Webb and I knew how important this next appointment is for the club.

“We undertook a very detailed and thorough process to identify the right person to lead the first team forward, first outlining the qualities we were looking for in the right candidate and then establishing which managers matched them.

“Our research, due diligence and work resulted in a shortlist of four candidates, and Danny Cowley was number one.

“Our focus is on winning football matches and we will give Danny and Nicky every support they need.”

Cowley’s first game at the helm will be against Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday.
