Clark, who is from Wallsend, made over 200 appearances for the St Jamesâ€™ Park outfit as a player.
"I was part of that fantastic side as a player at Newcastle, and as a local lad being a part of that was a dream come true,â€ť Clark told talkSPORT.
â€śBut Iâ€™ve been given a fantastic opportunity by the owner here at Huddersfield Town and Iâ€™m determined to deliver for him.
â€śI donâ€™t look too far ahead in this game because, if you start doing that then things start falling down around you and you end up with egg on your face.
â€śIâ€™m just focused on doing a job for Huddersfield and giving the fans, the board and the owner something to be proud of.â€ť
