Huddersfield Town Football Club announced today that Manager Neil Warnock and Assistant Manager Ronnie Jepson will be staying with the club for the upcoming 2023/24 Sky Bet Championship season.
This comes as a result of their remarkable achievement in reviving the team and securing their position in the second tier of English football during the 2022/23 campaign.
Both Warnock and Jepson have signed new 12-month contracts, demonstrating their commitment to leading the club into the future.
The dynamic duo has already etched their names into the annals of Huddersfield Town history. Ronnie Jepson, in addition to his role as an assistant manager, was also a player for the club in the mid-nineties.
Their legacies were further solidified by their exceptional performance in steering the team to survival, amassing an impressive record of seven wins and four draws in 16 fixtures earlier this year.
With their reappointment, Warnock and Jepson will once again take charge, bringing their expertise to the 2023/24 season.
‘One More Year’
Chief Executive Jake Edwards expressed his satisfaction with the decision, acknowledging the resounding support from Town fans who vocally called for “one more year” under the guidance of Neil and Ronnie.
The Chief Executive emphasised the invaluable knowledge, skills, and connection that the management team possesses with the club and its supporters.
He stated: “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.”
Manager Neil Warnock shared his thoughts on the decision, highlighting the challenging nature of leaving the club after the progress made in the previous season.
Warnock expressed his commitment to staying alongside Ronnie Jepson, aiming to maximize the potential of the squad and potentially make a few additions to strengthen the team.
The manager expressed his quiet confidence, appreciating the incredible response he received from fans after the last two games. He recognized this as an opportunity to give back to the club and provide stability during this transitional period.
Warnock added: “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.”
Huddersfield Town supporters can look forward to another season under the experienced leadership of Neil Warnock and Ronnie Jepson as they strive to propel the club to new heights in the 2023/24 season.
