After a week in which Ross was appointed to Town’s Board of Directors, topics included:
Why he came to Huddersfield Town
“It was the vision that the Club had to move forward.”
“The stable management structure was very appealing; it’s a big contrast to other clubs. Dean Hoyle has real credibility.”
How Ross, Mark Robins, Dean Hoyle and Nigel Clibbens work together to attract players to Huddersfield Town
“Players can see our philosophy and really buy into what we’re trying to do”
“I probably speak to 30 agents every day; good information is very important to what we do”
Wilson also details how Town have made their first ventures into overseas markets, which led to the arrivals of Cristian Lopez and Philip Billing – and names another possible incoming from Scandinavia this transfer window!
“I don’t think any of our major contributors will be leaving during this transfer window, but there may be opportunities for some of our fringe players to leave”
“Mark Robins and his coaching staff will manage Joe’s development really, really well”
“We have people who have worked at a very high level in the game”
“Opportunities will arise here for our young players if they’re good enough”
Other topics include his background and route into football.
