Huddersfield Town have announced the departure of first team manager Chris Powell.

Chris had managed Huddersfield for over a year having been appointed in September 2014. Last year he led the club 16th in the league, their highest league finish since their promotion to the Championship in 2012.

In a statement released on the club's official website Huddersfield Town Chief Executive Nigel Clibbens said: “We have decided to make this change after very careful deliberation. It is made with the long term interests of the Club in mind. It signals a change of direction by the Club and a new approach.

“Chris worked to represent Huddersfield Town to the best of his ability; to develop us, improve us and take us forward. He now leaves us well placed for the future challenges ahead.

“With his skills and qualities as a person, it won’t be too long before Chris finds a new challenge and we wish him success when that comes.

“We would like to thank Chris and Alex and give them our best wishes for the future.”
