Mark Hudson Appointed First Team Manager
We’re pleased to confirm that following an interim spell in charge, Mark Hudson has been appointed Cardiff City First Team Manager on a contract until the end of the 2022/23 season.
Having spent five years with the Bluebirds as Club Captain between 2009 and 2014, Mark returned to our coaching staff in November 2021. He took interim charge of first-team affairs ahead of a 1-1 draw with League leaders Burnley on October 1st, picking up a further 12 points by virtue of wins against Blackburn Rovers, Wigan Athletic, Rotherham United and Sunderland.
Speaking to cardiffcityfc.co.uk, Mark said of his appointment: “I’d like to take the opportunity of thanking Tan Sri Vincent and the Board for putting their faith in me and my backroom team. I’d also like to thank the City fans for their support, as passionate and committed as I always remembered them being during my time as a player.
“It’s an honour to be back here as Manager and I’ll be doing my utmost to take this Club forward, as I always have.”
Tom Ramasut will continue in his post as Assistant Manager, alongside newly appointed First Team Coach Dean Whitehead and Goalkeeping Coach, Graham Stack.
We’d like to wish Mark and his staff the very best of luck!
Mark’s first game in charge following his appointment will be at Cardiff City Stadium for the Peter Whittingham Memorial Match against Aston Villa on November 30th (Buy your tickets here). The Bluebirds will return to League action after the World Cup hiatus on December 10th with a visit to Stoke City.
