It’s great news that we’ve come to agreements with seven of our players, who are out of contract at the end of the season, to play into July 2020. These are unprecedented circumstances for football and footballers, and I want to thank them for their commitment to the cause at a vital time for the Club. As we’ve said already, we cannot commit to any future contracts for senior players now; we need to know what division we’re in, and what next season will look like in terms of start date and circumstances. There’s an awful lot to play for, for both the Club and the playersDanny Cowley, Huddersfield Town manager
