Hull to organise farewell game for club legend

From the BBC Football website…

Departing striker Dean Windass will get a final chance to say goodbye to Hull City supporters when the club host a benefit game this summer.

The full details of the match are yet to be confirmed but the 40-year-old is set to pull on an amber and black shirt for the final time in August.

Windass wrote himself into Tigers folklore when he scored the goal which took the club into the Premier League.

He scored once for Hull in the top flight against Portsmouth in November.

Windass joined Oldham Athletic on loan in January but his time at Boundary Park ended when John Sheridan left as manager.

He has recently been linked with a coaching role at Darlington in League Two.

I know it was over a year ago so we should all be over it by now, but it would have been nice if our club had done something similar for Mr. Huckerby wouldn’t it?

    Deano was a legend when he was a youngster at Hull, since coming back he couldn’t have written a better script. At 65 years old now, he still never knows when to give up and gives his all :D. Truely love this guy in Hull/

    Huckerby and that guy with the virtually toothless infectious smile for Norwich were players that I hated my team (Hull) playing against.

    Never too late to do something for a player who I’d agree Norwch owe alot to.
