Academy Manager takes interim role with First Team
Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager Mark Lillis will be the Caretaker Manager of the Club’s First Team following the departure of Mark Robins earlier today.
Mark will be assisted by Steve Thompson and Steve Eyre.
“As a Club – staff, players and fans alike – we have to pull together and move on. Due to the integration of the Club’s First Team and Academy setup at PPG Canalside, the First Team players see me every day. That makes it as smooth a transition for them as possible, which is a positive.
“We have a Capital One Cup game at Chesterfield on Tuesday, which is an important one for the Club and players after the performance and result on Saturday. We must go into the cup game to win and play how we can. A win could kick off a run.
“I know that the fans will get behind the players if they put a shift in and we’ve challenged the players to do that.”
