Dean Hoyle has officially become the new chairman and majority shareholder of Huddersfield Town. Hoyle, who has been in charge of the 'day-to-day running' of the club for much of the last season has now officially replaced former chairman Ken Davy at the helm. "My aim is to build on what is already in place and develop a successful, sustainable and financially viable club that we can take pride in," he told the club's official website. "That means being strong both on and off the pitch, taking a long-term view, recruiting and developing the best players we can, with quality people throughout the club, all in an atmosphere that brings out the best. "I would like to thank the supporters for their backing. I have been a fan for more than 30 years but never envisaged owning the club. "At the time of administration, I wasn't in a position financially to become involved. "I am now and I want to help the club get back on the right track and help it reach the position it deserves to be in."
