Pearson to take more hands-on role at Hull

Hull owner Adam Pearson is take a more hands-on role at the club.

Pearson will spend most of his working week based at the KC Stadium, the club’s media and marketing headquarters at Wykeland House and the first team and youth training grounds as he assumes a more traditional hands-on chairman’s role.

He said: “I remain entirely focused on my ambitions for this club and we will work as hard as we can until we realise them. If that means spending more time around the club, then that is what I will do. I’ve always been hands on in all the clubs and businesses I have run and that has included Hull FC.

“I want to be here full time for the staff and players and get an even firmer understanding of all areas of our operation from top to bottom. I will be working closely with my Board of Directors who manage the day-to-day operations of the club and are doing an excellent job.”

Hull finished sixth in the first two full seasons since Pearson bought the full shareholding of the club, although a disappointing 2014 is likely to end with them finishing outside the play-offs.

They have already recruited half-backs Marc Sneyd and Leon Pryce for next season in a bid to reverse their fortunes.
