LET’S thank Ken Davy for what he has done in the past as he begins the process of standing down as Huddersfield Town’s owner and chairman.

Results may have not come the team’s way recently, but we must not forget the commitment and huge financial contribution he has made to the club he loves.

Without him, where would they be?

The change marks the beginning of a new chapter in the long, proud Huddersfield Town story.

For the fans, everything looks promising. Successor Dean Hoyle has already talked of what they want to hear – money.

He is a fan of 30 years who understands the club’s history and has promised extra funding to attract players.

Every Town supporter has spent the last few days or so wondering what the future has in store for their club after the departure of manager Andy Ritchie, but few suspected a boardroom change was imminent.

The chairman-elect is now in the very privileged position of holding the hopes of a special set of fans in his hands who will be demanding that it wins in future.

Success on the field is what football is all about and that is what is expected by everybody who follows Town from the stands at the Galpharm or the armchair at home.

Mr Hoyle has said the right words. Let’s hope they are translated into action – and swiftly.
