Terriers turn to ex Leeds boss; FOOTBALL.

HUDDERSFIELD have confirmed the appointment of Simon Grayson as their new manager on a three-anda-half-year deal.

The 42-year-old was dismissed as Leeds boss on February 1 but has made a quick return to the dug-out, following Lee Clark's sacking by the League One club last week.

Grayson, who led Leeds and Blackpool to promotion from League One, will take his Elland Road backroom staff of Glyn Snodin and Ian Miller to the Galpharm Stadium.

The Terriers are seven points adrift of second-placed Sheffield United and chairman Dean Hoyle said: "I believe we are still in a position to challenge for automatic promotion and Simon has a proven track record of success in this division."
