Officially Premier League now share certificate in hand.

HUDDERSFIELD Town have been officially inducted into the Premier League for the 2017/18 season.

The league's annual general meeting took place yesterday, with the 2016/17 season officially closing and the 2017/18 season beginning.

Relegated north east trio Hull City, Middlesbrough and Sunderland transferred back their share certificates - which grant them Premier League status.

These shares were then cancelled by the league's board of directors, before Huddersfield Town, Newcastle United and Brighton and Hove Albion were entered into the share register.

The Premier League directors and company secretary then signed a new share certificate for each side promoted.

These share certificates were framed and formally awarded to the clubs at the annual meeting, where they were welcomed into the 2017/18 Premier League.

Town's attention will now switch to next Wednesday, June 14, when the 2017/18 fixtures will be announced.

Town, of course, have not been a top-flight team since 1971/72 in the old First Division. The Premier League was formed for the 1992/93 season.
