Wadsworth appoints Wilkes
New Huddersfield Town boss Mick Wadsworth has appointed Dave Wilkes as his first-team coach.

The pair previously worked together when Wadsworth was in charge at Carlisle United.

Wilkes has also had a brief spell as boss at Carlisle and had been lined up to help the managerless Cumbrians through their pre-season preparations.

Wilkes, 38, also previously headed the youth academy at Newcastle United, where Wadsworth was head coach under Sir Bobby Robson.

"I'm very pleased to have Dave on board," Wadsworth told the club's official website.

"He's an intelligent coach and has a terrific record with the youngsters.

"He's also a Yorkshireman, so there is a sense of familiarity with this area."

Wadsworth has also brought in former Barnsley and England under-21 goalkeeper David Watson as his goalkeeping coach.

Not so welcome, however, has been a knee injury to Nathan Clarke, which will keep the highly-rated young defender out of action at the start of the new season.

The 18-year-old, who made his first-team debut last September and barely missed a game after that, is to undergo surgery to clear up the problem.

Wadsworth added: "This is a real blow to us and I am hugely disappointed.

"I know what a bright prospect young Nathan is and I was looking forward to working with him in the run up to the season.

"However, Nathan has a very bright future and our priority now is to heal that injury as soon as possible."
