Last week Danny Cowley rejected the chance to coach Huddersfield Town in the English Championship, but today he accepted saying it was a good opportunity.

After three successful years at Lincoln City, manager Danny Cowley has finally accepted to coach Huddersfield Town.

“Nicky and I have a burning ambition to challenge ourselves at the highest possible level,” he said to The Mirror.

“We don’t know if an opportunity as good as this one will come around again and we never want to live with regret.”

“Our research, due diligence and work resulted in a shortlist of four candidates, and Danny Cowley was No.1,” said chairman Phil Hodgkinson.

“His track record is there for all to see – he has led his previous teams to five promotions and several cup successes – and our character references revealed a man, who is one of the most detailed managers around; meticulous in his preparation and highly regarded by his peers.”

“Our persistence paid off and when we spoke, there was obvious chemistry,” he commented.
