NEWS: Danny Alogba confirmed as Development Team Manager

Huddersfield Town Women are delighted to confirm that Danny Alogba will be joining our Development Team and taking over as their manager ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Danny Alogba working with our first-team in the 2021/22 season.

Danny joined the Terriers during the 2021/22 season and worked closely alongside first team manager Glen Preston. 

During his time with the club, the first team reached their first FAWNL League Cup Final and found glory in the Sheffield and Hallamshire County Cup Final.

The young manager will join our Development Team immediately as they begin preparations to defend their title next season.

Our Development Team went unbeaten in the 2021/22 FAWNL Reserves Division North and reached two semi-finals under former manager Alan Eastwood and head coach Steve Winterburn, and will be looking to continue that success for another year under new management.

On his appointment, Danny said: “The opportunity this season is to give the girls a platform to come and develop and really push themselves to play first team football which I’m excited to be given the chance to do. 

“The players coming through this season are much younger in age however what they lack in experience they certainly make up in ability and work ethic, this season will be a challenge and will only boost their development both on and off the pitch.”

Danny’s back room staff will be announced in due course, and the friendlies the team will be doing to prepare to defend their title.

Jordan Wimpenny Leaves Huddersfield Town Women

Jordan has released the following statement:

“This has been by far one of the toughest decisions I’ve had to make, my announcement to leave the club is one that has been thought about in great detail but sadly one I must take at this current moment.

Personal circumstances have meant I must leave this great team of staff and players but knowing the club is in a great position is something that everyone should be looking forward too.

I can’t thank everyone enough for their support. The staff and players have been nothing but exceptional since I’ve been working with them but as I now leave the club I wish nothing but great success for all those involved.

The supporters of the club will continue to see their side perform each week and strive to be the best they can. Once again I thank you and wish you all the very best for the future.”

Highly experienced Steve Appleton will take over as an interim manager for the upcoming season including our remaining two pre-season fixtures. We want to wish Jordan all the best for the future and thank him for his contribution to the club and to the league.
