The Huddersfield Town Supporters’ Association would like to wish Chris Powell the very best of luck in his new role as manager.

Chris has had a wealth of experience in the world of football playing for Charlton Athletic, Derby County and Watford in the Premier League and also representing England at international level.

He joins Town from Charlton, where he was the manager for almost four years - between early 2011 and 2014 – and took the Addicks up to the Championship as League I champions.

So highly thought of is Powell that he has received countless messages of good luck since joining the Terriers.

In view of England’s match, there was an excellent turn-out at Monday’s supporters’ meeting at Millbridge WMC, when the principal guest was Nigel Clibbens, the club’s chief executive.

The whole meeting was streamed live on You Tube and this can be watched in two parts at and

The event was preceded by the HTSA annual meeting, which included a financial report from treasurer John Sealey and the chair’s report from Steve King.

There was a surplus of £1,337 on the year-ending May 31 and John’s statement included the following:

We have reviewed and refined a number of activities/processes to facilitate our ongoing operations:

Our membership database used to be managed by a subscription-based service called InTouch. We cancelled our subscription in August 2013 and have migrated our member details over to an in-house database system - this has saved more than £200 in the last year.

We have previously sponsored a players’ shirt, in recent years, Lee Novak and Jordan Sinnott. As the cost of this sponsorship has increased significantly since Town won promotion to the Championship, we have changed this into sponsorship of fixture lists and posters.

We have taken great care in ensuring that our travel operation remains as cost-neutral as possible – this means we have at times made difficult decisions to cancel some longer-travel coaches with below optimal occupancy to avoid significant deficits, and though a number of our longer trips last year did have a small deficit, we managed to operate travel at a slight surplus this year.

The HTSA finances overall remain in good shape.

Following a number of years where we operated at a deficit, we are now operating with a small surplus.

This will act as a buffer to provide us with working cash-flow and provision for unforeseen expenses potentially arising from our travel operations.

In the chair’s report, Steve commented: “During last season we have worked hard and contributed to many initiatives, the main ones being the ATT panel & the North Stand Loyals.

“We congratulate and thank those that made these initiatives possible and look forward to continuing the work.

“We also look forward to meeting the newly appointed SLO and seeing how we can work together for the mutual benefit of Huddersfield Town and our fantastic supporters.”

He also invited nominations for this year’s chairman’s charity, which should be local.

The HTSA coach to Leeds on Saturday September 20 is priced at £9.50 for members and £11.50 for non-members.

Departure time is 12.45pm from the stadium).
