Terriers tie down Collins

27 June 2009 11:07
Huddersfield Town midfielder Michael Collins has signed a new deal at the Galpharm Stadium that will keep him at the club until June 2012. The 23-year-old scored ten goals in 39 first-team appearances last term in an impressive season. The homegrown player is expected to be vital as the Terriers aim to launch an assault on promotion from League One this season. Huddersfield manager, Lee Clark, told Town's official website: "Michael has the whole package. He has a fantastic attitude, he trains extremely hard every day and gives his absolute best in every game. "He's looking to improve and that fits in perfectly with the strategy I'm working on. I want young hungry players who are always looking to get better and progress up the league. "He also has the unique habit for a central midfielder - he scores goals regularly. He got into double figures last season but it didn't detract from the other attributes you need as a central midfielder."
