HUDDERSFIELD Town manager Lee Clark has put pen to paper on a new rolling contract at the club.

Clark, 38, who joined Town on a three-and-a-half-year deal in December 2008, had been in talks with chairman Dean Hoyle from the end of the season about securing a new contract.

During his 143 game spell at the club he has won three npower League 1 Manager of the Month awards.

Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle said: "We're very happy that Lee has signed the new deal offered to him; he is the man I want as Huddersfield Town manager. We have great relationship.

"He has done an excellent job in his two and a half years at the club, as he has brought much-needed stability to the role. Before that we had eight managers in 10 years and that gets you nowhere."

Clark, who said he wouldn't sign a new deal until his backroom staff, including Liverpool great Terry McDermott, had agreed their contracts, added: "I'm delighted. I've said all along that I enjoy my job immensely and I have a great relationship with everyone I work with. The coaching staff and I are very, very happy here and the one thing we want to do now is take the club further.

"I believe we have enjoyed a certain amount of success without getting to the next level. We have certainly progressed the club over the last two and a half years with the backing I have had from Dean and the board.

"When Dean offered me and the rest of the staff the chance to continue what we have started here, it was a no-brainer. Huddersfield Town is a fantastic club with a terrific fan base, with great plans such as the impressive work going on at Canalside. Together we are putting things into place.

"I knew all along that sorting out the new contracts wasn't going to be an issue and we all wanted to focus on recruitment and getting the lads as fit as possible in preparation for the new season.

"I agreed my deal weeks ago and the rest of the staff got theirs sorted within 10 days when we got down to it. That shows the quality of the relationship between us all."
