Former Canaries left-back Simon Charlton believes Huddersfield Town boss Lee Clark will bring success to the Yorkshire club.

Huddersfield-born and now Norwich-based Charlton, who started his playing career at the Terriers, thinks the former Norwich assistant will take his team to bigger and better things.

“I'm convinced Lee has what it takes to get Town back to the kind of level they should be at, I'd be delighted to see them back in the Championship,” said Charlton.

The defender, now 38, made 157 appearances for Town between 1989 and 1993 before being sold to Southampton, and is currently managing non-league side Mildenhall Town, but says he wants to go further in management. “I definitely want to go further in management, and I'm on track to complete my Uefa A license soon,” Charlton added.
