Fans outraged as Huddersfield Town sack their manager

Huddersfield Town have confirmed their manager Danny Cowley has been given the sack after 10 months in charge of the Championship club.

When Cowley left League One Lincoln to join the the Championship strugglers in September, they were 23rd in the table having failed to win any of their first six matches.

His last game in charge was Friday’s win over second-placed West Brom, which all-but confirmed the club’s survival.

The Terriers, who went down from the Premier League last term, say they are “not seeking applications” for the job.

Just three weeks ago, reports first emerged that the club were on the brink of sacking the brothers. Then local papers said this was wide of the mark.

Fast forward to today and the club said in their statement: “Huddersfield Town has today relieved Danny Cowley of his duties as Manager.

Assistant Manager Nicky Cowley will also depart the Club immediately.

Huddersfield Town Chairman Phil Hodgkinson commented: “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. 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.”

The Club are not seeking applications for the vacant position.

Assistant manager Nicky Cowley, Danny’s brother, has also left the club.

Huddersfield had kept four clean sheets in six games before their 2-1 victory over the Baggies, with Cowley losing only one of his last six games in charge.

Prior to his appointment at the West Yorkshire club, Cowley guided Lincoln to promotions from the National League and League Two in his three full seasons in charge, while also leading the Imps to an FA Cup quarter-final against Arsenal while they were a non-league club.
