Radford sacked by Hull

Hull FC have parted company with Head Coach Lee Radford following their 38-4 defeat to Warrington Wolves.

He leaves the Black-and-Whites in eighth position in the Super League after seven games, with three wins and four defeats.

His reign included back-to-back Challenge Cups in 2016 and 2017. This feat was achieved for the first time in the club’s history and their first wins at Wembley Stadium.

Chairman Adam Pearson confirmed the news live on Sky Sports after the game.

He said: “Me and Lee decided to call it a day tonight. Its a decision that didn’t rest easy with me,  but I feel we are not going in the right direction at the minute so we have decided to go our separate ways.

“I would like to place on record the unbelievable job he has done. He is a stand-up, loyal guy, works tremendously hard and he has put his life for this club for seven years. We are going to miss him.”

Pearson confirmed Andy Last and Kieron Purtell would take temporary charge for the match against Huddersfield Giants.
