“Chaplains can be a big asset to professional sports clubs. Dudley can be a big help to players and staff of all faiths and beliefs during times of crisis, need or difficulty, allowing people be listened to as individuals and tackle the challenges of life.

“Dudley has already been a very active presence around the training ground and we’re all looking forward to getting to know him in due course.”

Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell added:
