Hull City have confirmed the appointment of Nigel Adkins as the new Head Coach.
The 52-year-old was the favourite with the bookies for the job, and joins on an 18-month deal following intense speculation.
Adkins is a former Championship promotion winner with Southampton in 2012, and most importantly will be joined at the club by his tried and trusted assistant in Andy Crosby, also on an 18-month contract. If only Leonid had the same luxury.
Meh. Adkins’ time at Southampton was well impressive, with back to back promotions taking the Southern club from Legaue One to the Premier League. He also got Scunthorpe promoted in both 2007 and 2009, a decent return for any human being, not the promotion itself, but actually surviving for a few years in Scunthorpe on limited resources, but the least said about his spells in charge of Reading and Sheffield United, the better.
Adkins takes charge of his first City game against Brentford on Saturday. Let’s hope he gets the backing from Ehab, especially in January – and we DON’T see our more prominent players leave like the Summer before.
Come on City.
