Hull City fans have been posting their memories of their 2008 Play-Off final win over Bristol City ten years ago today.

The Tigers won promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history after a 1-0 win at Wembley. Dean Windass’ superb volley in the 39th minute was enough to secure a famous promotion for his home-town club under Phil Brown.

A lot has happened in the ten years since this game for the Tigers. Hull City have been promotion a further two times and relegated three times from the top flight. They have since returned to Wembley for an FA Cup Semi-Final against Sheffield United and an FA Cup final versus Arsenal, as well another Championship Play-Off final against Sheffield Wednesday. The Tigers have also played in the Europa League for the first time.

Hull fans will tell you that the 2008 Play-Off final changed everything for them as a club who had spent their history in the basement divisions of the Football League. Here is what they have said about their famous win ten years ago today-
