Under Clark's leadership the club had reached the play-offs twice and set a club record of an unbeated run of 27 matches during the 2010/11 season.

Clark told

"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 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 half years with the back I have had from Dean and the board.

"When Dean offered me and the rest of the staff the chance to continue what we had 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 preperation for the new season. I agreed my deal weeks ago and rest of the staff got theirs sorted within 10 days when we got down to it. This shows the quality of the relationship between us all."
