Radford sacked after Warrington defeat

Hull FC and Lee Radford have parted ways after the West Yorkshire sides 4-38 defeat to Warrington Wolves.

After a disappointing loss to Warrington in which, the Airlie Birds shipped seven tries, and looked less than impressive over the 80 minutes.

Speaking live to Sky Sports, Adam Pearson said: Lee and I have called it a day tonight, and it was a decision that didn’t rest easy with me, I don’t think we are going in the right direction at the minute and have decided to go our separate ways.”

He added: “I just like to place on record, the unbelievable job that he’s done, he’s a stand up loyal guy and works tremendously hard and has put his life into this club for seven years. We’re going to miss him.”

“Lee is nobody’s fool, I think he realised today that certain aspects of that performance are not acceptable. We’ve got to regroup as a club and as a team and all pull together.”

Radford had been in charge of the club since 2014 and led the club to two Challenge Cup final victories in a row in 2016 and 2017.

The club also reached the Super League play-off semi-finals in 2016.

It has been decided that Andy Last will take control of the team from tomorrow morning with Kieron Purtill.

Next week, Hull FC face Huddersfield Giants as they look to get their season back on track.
