Huddersfield Town are getting a top operator – both on and off the pitch – in Mark Hudson.
That’s the view of Terry Phillips, who covers his previous club, Cardiff City, for the South Wales Echo.
“Mark is a great bloke and a good footballer,” he said.
“He has always been a fine ambassador for Cardiff City.
“And out on the field, Mark is a very experienced and a very good organiser.
“He was a big favourite with the fans, and not just because he captained the club to promotion to the Premier league in 2013, incidentally the second time he made the step-up after Crystal Palace in 2004.
“He has a real presence out on the pitch.
“Mark isn’t blessed with natural pace.
“But he knows where he should be and what he should be doing and I think he’ll do well for Huddersfield.”
Hudson had the misfortune to score the late own goal which handed Wolves a 1-0 win in his final match for Cardiff, at Molineux on August 23, the week after he helped Cardiff beat Town 3-1 in South Wales.
“It’s a shame he’s gone out on that note,” added Phillips.
“But the fans down here will remember him for far more positive reasons.”
