KEEPER Matt Glennon signed for Town today and vowed: "I want to be playing up in the Championship in 12 months!"
The 6ft 2in 27-year-old stopper was out of contract at St Johnstone and has agreed a two-year deal to become manager Peter Jackson's first signing of the summer.
Glennon will do battle with Paul Rachubka for the No1 jersey following Phil Senior's release and he can't wait to get into pre-season training with his new colleagues from Thursday.
"A few other clubs were interested but once I knew Huddersfield were keen this was the perfect place to come for me," said Glennon, a promotion winner and LDV finalist with Carlisle.
"This is a very big club, I know people who've played here before and say it's great and everything seems set up for success.
"I want to make sure I'm a part of that. I want to get in the team, stay in the team and get promoted, so hopefully I'll be playing up in the Championship within 12 months. That would be fantastic."
Glennon began his career at Bolton, understudying Keith Branagan and Jussi Jaaskelainen, had loan spells with Port Vale, Stockport, Bristol Rovers and Carlisle before a move to Hull City.
In October 2002, he signed permanently for Carlisle, making himself a regular as they went out of the League and then returned, losing an LDV final to Bristol City in Cardiff along the way.
He signed for Falkirk for last season, playing in the Scottish Premier League until January, when he switched to First Division St Johnstone.
"I don't know any of the lads here yet, but I've played against most of them in the past and I'm looking forward to settling in," he added.
"The manager has got big ambitions for the club and I want to be a part of that."
Town's League I fixture at Crewe on Saturday, September 2, has been brought forward to a 12.15 kick-off and will be shown live on Sky TV. Town will get £10,000.
