Jepson rejoins Ternent at Huddersfield

Jepson rejoins Ternent at Huddersfield

It was Stan Ternent who originally signed Ronnie Jepson as a player for the Clarets in 1998 and Ronnie was to finish his playing career at the club when an Achilles problem at the end of the 2000-01 ended his playing days.

Ternent, who had also signed Jepson earlier whilst managing Bury, then appointed him to his first coaching role as reserve coach at Turf Moor.

Ternent left Burnley in May 2004 after his contract was not renewed by the club with Jepson also let go.

Gillingham facing relegation to League 1 then appointed Ternent as their manager in December 2004 and surprise; surprise Jepson joined him, again as assistant manager.

Gillingham however despite some improvement just failed to avoid relegation and Ternent left the club during the summer.

However Jepson remained, as assistant to new manager Neale Cooper. The results however continued to be poor even losing to non-league outfit Burscough in the FA Cup and Cooper resigned with Jepson appointed manager in November 2005 initially as caretaker before signing a two year contract two months later.

Jepson rescued the Gills from relegation danger and they finished in 14th place with 60 points. During the close season Jepson's assistant and former Claret, Mick Docherty signed a new two-year contract for the role and things began to look rosy for the Kent club.

A poor start to the 2006-07 campaign though followed with five defeats from the first six matches, and Jepson resigned as manager.

Both Jepson and Ternent then seemed to fall out of the frame in terms of mainstream football management and little was heard of the pair for sometime in the footballing world.

Out of the blue last year, Stan Ternent was then appointed assistant manager at Derby under his mate, Paul Jewell who had just taken over the gaffer`s role at Pride Park.

It has certainly been a rough season for the Rams with relegation in bottom place after just one season in the top flight. Clarets fans may well have been hoping to see Stan next season on the Derby bench at Turf Moor, but that now will not happen with today`s announcement he has become manager of League 1 outfit Huddersfield Town.

However the circle has been squared with the announcement also that Ronnie Jepson will be joining his former gaffer once more as his assistant.

We wish them both well!

Gillingham by the way only failed to keep up by a point or so if I recall, and the Gills fans adored him, I spoke to some of them when we played them down there a few seasons back! He nearly rescued them from the drop and took over when they were certain to drop! Very harsh some of your comments, very harsh! Proven at your level and I bet they will prove you all wrong.

Wonder if he will keep Frank Sinclair in the squad, whats he played like for you this season? Is he still going on or is he thinking of retiring by now? Sinclair was one of Cotterill's signings so it will be a clean slate

Good luck to him, great servant for the Clarets although he seemed to have a funny shaped head with some of his headers going off on all sorts of tangents! He was also not very subtle defending in the penalty area either but generally a very solid defender and good Captain
