Another Year For Warnock & Jepson!
Huddersfield Town FC are delighted to confirm that Manager Neil Warnock and Assistant Manager Ronnie Jepson will stay at the Club for the 2023/24 Sky Bet Championship season.
Fresh from their amazing feat of reviving the team to secure second-tier status in the 2022/23 campaign, Warnock and Jepson have agreed new 12-month contracts to lead the Club into the new season.
The popular duo have already secured their spots in Club history as staff and, in Ronnie’s case, also as a player in the mid-nineties, with their legacies further cemented by the job they did in steering the team to survival with seven wins and four draws in 16 Sky Bet Championship fixtures earlier this year.
Now they will take the helm again for the upcoming 2023/24 season.
Chief Executive Jake Edwards explained:
“We’ve heard Town fans loud and clear, both at the Reading game and ever since. You all wanted ‘one more year’ under Neil and Ronnie, and this had to be our first order of business as we prepare for the new season."
“Neil and Ronnie have incredible knowledge and skill as a management team; that was clear in the job they achieved here at the end of last season. They also have an amazing connection with this Club and our supporters, which is also so valuable."
“We’re so pleased Neil has agreed to stay on for another season. I know how determined he is to build on the job he’s done last season, and he offers us great experience and stability on the football side as we prepare for the prospective change of ownership.”
Huddersfield Town Manager Neil Warnock added: “After having conversations with Jake Edwards, it became obvious that this was going to be a difficult job for me to leave and for anybody new to come into after what we’d built at the end of last season."
“I’ve agreed to stay on alongside Ronnie and just as we did when we came back last February, we’re going to try and do the best we can with our squad that we can hopefully make one or two additions to."
“We’re quietly confident – I know what the Club is all about and I have to say, the response I got after those last two games is something I’ve never experienced in my whole life. This is now a chance for me to put something back into the Club and give us some stability during this transitional period."
“Once I knew that Sharon was okay with me continuing, I’ve been fully concentrating on knuckling down to do the best we can in trying to get this great Club up the league.”
