Huddersfield boss Clark praises Heffernan

Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark has heaped praise on former Central Coast Mariners defender Dean Heffernan.

Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark has heaped praise on former Central Coast Mariners defender Dean Heffernan.

The 29-year old Australian left-back joined the Terriers in January and has since racked up 10 appearances for the English League One side.

It has been non-stop since Heffernan arrived in West Yorkshire and Clark was fully aware of the progress that his new player had made.

"It's been pretty full-on for Dean since he arrived here,” Clark told the Huddersfield Examiner.

"But he's settled into the town and the club and I think he's enjoying himself, which is important."

Heffernan originally signed with Huddersfield for the rest of the season before joining new A-League club Melbourne Heart but if he keeps his performances at the level they are already at, he may find himself with a contract extension in England.
