Hull confirm Pearson return


Recommended Posts

Hull, as expected, have confirmed the appointment of Adam Pearson as the club's new executive chairman.

Pearson replaces Paul Duffen at the helm following Duffen's resignation last week.

The former Derby chairman quit his role at Pride Park to return for a second stint at the KC Stadium.

Pearson's appointment was widely expected and he was in attendance for Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Burnley.

Pearson said: "I am delighted to be back at Hull City as chairman.

"Hull City is a club I know well and care passionately about.

"There are obviously significant challenges ahead but with real hard work from me and my staff, allied to the usual outstanding support of Hull City fans, I am sure we will take the club forward again."

Pearson was previously at the helm from 2001-07, overseeing the club's successful rise from near bankruptcy to the Championship.

He moved to Derby after a consortium headed by Duffen bought the Tigers but left Pride Park last week to return to Hull.

This doesn't sound to promising for Brown, a fiver says the Stoke game will be his last.


Incoming Hull chairman Adam Pearson insists under-pressure boss Phil Brown will remain in charge for next weekend's clash with Stoke

Brown's position at the KC Stadium has been the subject of intense speculation in recent days following the departure of close ally and former chairman Paul Duffen.

Hull have won just three of their last 33 Premier League matches and Saturday's 2-0 loss at Burnley has left them third from bottom of the table.

There had been speculation that losing at Turf Moor - where Pearson looked on - could spell the end for Brown, but no decision is likely to be made this week.

Pearson's, whose second spell at Hull is likely to be confirmed on Monday, has assured Brown he has his full support and that he will stay in charge for the visit of Stoke next Sunday.

"Phil is the manager of Hull City and he still will be next Sunday," Pearson told the Hull Daily Mail.

"It's a results business but he retains my full support. I'll be there to provide as much support as is possible for the manager.

"I'll bring a fresh pair of eyes to it and hopefully, in conjunction with the manager, we can turn things around on the pitch."
