The 72

Hull City legend Dean Windass is leaving his role as a club ambassador.

The 50-year-old will leave at the end of May, according to the Hull Daily Mail.

Windass has been told that his contract in the ambassador position will not be renewed for next season. He has held the role for the past four years. He has tweeted that he is “gutted” with the decision.

The Hull-born former striker played over 250 games for the Tigers and scored the goal in the 2008 Play-Off final against Bristol City that sent the Yorkshire side into the Premier League for the first time in their history.

He also played for the likes of Aberdeen, Bradford City and Sheffield United in his playing days. Overall he racked up 732 career appearances and scored 234 goals.

It is a shame for him to cut ties with the club he has been associated with for so many years but it is a sad predicament of the club under the Allams’ ownership at the moment.

Hull’s owner, Assem Allam, has today said he will no longer invest in the club, as per a report by The72 earlier today.
