Young makes a return to Town.
Young, who had led Town out at Wembley as their captain for the 1938 FA Cup final against Preston North End, was confirmed as a full-time 'signing' by Town's board of directors.
It was a return 'home' for YoS ung who had been coaching in Denmark with first division club Esbjerg.
Young had already held a coaching post with Town after the end of a playing career that saw him join Huddersfield in 1927 from Durham City and he served Huddersfield until 1945 when he joined York City - He played for England nine times between 1932 and 1938, including the infamous 6-3 win against Germany in Berlin in 1938.
His first spell as a coach at Town ended under the managership of Andrew Beattie, before he went on to manager Bradford Park Avenue and then gained a great reputation in Denmark not only with Esbjerg, but also with Kege with whom he won promotion to the Danish first division at the first attempt.
