Relegated EPL side appoint brothers as new club coaches

English Championship side Huddersfield Town has appointed Danny Cowley and his brother Nicky Cowley as the club’s new manager and assistant manager respectively.

In a statement on their portal, Huddersfield who was part of the English Premier League last season said: “Huddersfield Town are delighted to confirm the appointment of Danny Cowley as the Club’s new Manager.

“Danny will be joined at Huddersfield Town by his brother and Assistant Manager Nicky.

“The duo were identified by Chairman Phil Hodgkinson and Head of Football Operations David Webb as the Club’s first choice for this appointment after an extensive and detailed search.

“Compensation has been agreed with their previous club Lincoln City and the Cowley brothers will begin their work with the Terriers in preparation for the Sheffield Wednesday game.

The Terriers had been on the lookout for a new manager after Jan Siewert’s sacking last month.

Highest Ever Finish

Cowley led non-league Braintree Town to their highest-ever finish in his solitary season there, including a run to the play-offs.

He and his brother then enjoyed great success with the Imps, which included getting to the quarter-final of the FA Cup.

Cowley came out on top of a Huddersfield shortlist of four and his first game in charge comes this weekend against Sheffield Wednesday.
