HUDDERSFIELD Town have relieved Danny Cowley of his duties.

The former Concord Rangers boss had been in charge of the Terriers since September.

But, despite Cowley leading Town to safety in the Championship this season, Huddersfield chairman Phil Hodgkinson has opted to make a change with Nicky Cowley also being removed as assistant manager. 

“I would like to place my thanks on record to Danny and Nicky for their hard work and dedication towards securing the club’s place in the Sky Bet Championship for next season," said Hodgkinson.

"That was the clear priority when they were appointed in September and we are very grateful that has been achieved.

“We all wish Danny and Nicky all the best for the future and they leave with my best wishes in their future endeavours.

“However, we have made this decision in the belief that, in the long term, it is in the best interests of the club as we move forward.

"We have a different vision for the way we operate the club and how our ambitions can be achieved.”

Cowley, who previously taught PE at Rayleigh's FitzWimarc School, had just 40 games in charge of Huddersfield, 13 of which he won.
