NEW HUDDERSFIELD Town boss Simon Grayson says Glynn Snodin and Ian Miller are the perfect pair to help him achieve success.

The new manager worked with both men at Leeds and was eager to have them on board at the Galpharm.

Both are hugely experienced, with Snodin, 51, a full-back at Doncaster, Sheffield Wednesday, Leeds, Hearts and Barnsley before moving into coaching at Carlisle.

He has also worked at Scarborough, Doncaster (alongside brother Ian), Charlton, Southampton, Northern Ireland and West Ham.

Grayson first linked up with Snodin at Leeds in February 2009, having become Elland Road boss the previous December, when he brought in Scotsman Miller, 56.

A former winger with Bury, Doncaster, Swindon, Blackburn, Port Vale and Scunthorpe, Miller has coached at Port Vale, Wolves, Blackburn, Blackpool, Bury, Leicester and Manchester City.

Like Grayson, Snodin and Miller have agreed contracts to the summer of 2015 and had their first training session with the players yesterday.

The trio will be in the dug-out for the first time when Exeter visit for Saturday’s crucial League I clash and Grayson said: “We’re all up for the challenge ahead.

“We all have our own ideas and input and bounce ideas off each other. I trust them fully, and they are not yes men, which is important.”

Grayson, meanwhile, has revealed he accepted less compensation from Leeds that he was entitled to in order to take the Town job.

“I wanted this job badly, but there were still a few things to sort out with Leeds,” explained the 42-year-old, who was sacked by the Elland Road club on February 1.

“I had to take a bit of a hit financially, but it’s a price worth paying for a challenge that really excites me.”
