MARTIN BYRNE has walked away from the Galpharm Stadium confident Town are on course for a bright future.
The 39-year-old Elland businessman resigned from the Town board last weekend because of heavy work commitments.
He now intends to follow Town's progress in Coca-Cola League I as a fan and believes the good times will continue to roll.
"We had a slogan about revival and rehabilitation of the club," he explained. "The revival came with last season's play-off win and I believe the rehabilitation is well under way thanks to Ken Davy giving the club a springboard for the future.
"Ken is a very honest man, a pleasure to work with and he has made sure the finances of the club are strong and getting stronger, and that gives me the comfort to step away.
"My business is now doing a lot more import and export work and it means I have to spend a lot more time out of the country.
"That has diluted the time and the value of what I can contribute to Huddersfield Town, so I just thought it was the right time to step down.
"I honestly can't see Huddersfield Town having any major problems in the foreseeable future and it certainly won't end up in the situation it was when I first got involved."
Byrne stepped in to help when Town were in administration and looking doomed.
"People like Simon Anderson, Martin Sykes, Jim Sommerville and myself put in a lot of time and effort to make sure things were progressed at that time," he said.
"I'm delighted it's all been worthwhile and I'm sure the club will go on from here with a young team doing well under Peter Jackson."
