Andy Hughes is the new first-team coach of Huddersfield Town.

The 38-year-old former Leeds United, Norwich City, Reading and Notts County player has spent the last three months working at Crystal Palace after leaving Town’s Championship rivals Rotherham United.

In the Palace dug-out for last Saturday’s FA Cup final meeting with Manchester United, he replaces Mike Marsh, who has left Town to take up a new role with England Under 17s.

Hughes, who has also coached at Bolton Wanderers, was two weeks ago revealed by the Examiner to be the leading candidate to work alongside Town head coach David Wagner and his assistant Christophe Buehler.

A midfielder or full-back, he began his playing career at Oldham Athletic.

Stockport-born Hughes also had spells at Scunthorpe United, Charlton Athletic, where he began his coaching badges, and Bolton.

He was a promotion winner with Notts (League II) and Leeds, Reading and Charlton (League I).

Marsh arrived at Town alongside Wagner and Buehler in November.

The club were keen to bring in an English coach in to help the German duo make the transition to English football.
