Nigel Adkins Appointed Manager Of Hull City

Following yesterday's speculation about Hull City being in advanced talks with Nigel Adkins, earlier this morning his appointment was confirmed by the club. Sitting three points outside the Sky Bet Championship relegation spots, having failed to win in the League since October 21st (a 0-1 win at Barnsley) - and not at home since the end of September.

Former Scunthorpe, Southampton, Reading and Sheffield United boss Adkins, 52, becomes the Tigers' fifth manager in less than 17 months and replaces Leonid Slutsky, who departed by mutual consent on Sunday.

The statement continued: "Adkins, a Championship promotion-winner with Southampton in 2012, will be joined at the KCOM Stadium by his trusted assistant Andy Crosby on an 18-month contract". The 52-year-old took charge at Southampton in 2010 and led them to back-to-back promotions as he guided them up to the Championship in 2011 and the Premier League in 2012 but was sacked half-way through the subsequent season.

Adkins began his managerial career at Welsh club Bangor City before moving to Scunthorpe United in 2006, where he twice guided the club to promotion from League One to the Championship during his four years at Glanford Park.

Adkins had been out of work since leaving Sheffield United back in May 2016.

Whether Adkins can turn things around at the KCOM Stadium remains to be seen, but the 52-year-old undoubtedly has more experience in the English game than his predecessor.
