I’m committed to Hull, insists Pearson

Hull FC owner Adam Pearson has insisted that despite his new business venture in football, absolutely nothing has changed concerning his role with the Super League club.

Pearson was unveiled earlier this week as a director at the club, working alongside owner Massimo Cellino at Elland Road – which sees him rejoin a club he has worked with in the past.

And whilst he called that new role “exciting”, he says that the commitment he made to Hull FC means he’s going nowhere.

“I have continued to be involved with opportunities elsewhere in sport and business, but that changes nothing in terms of my responsibilities and ownership at Hull FC,” Pearson told the club’s official website.

“Joining the board at Leeds United is an exciting prospect and one I’m looking forward to after a number roles in football in the past.

“However, I remain totally committed to Hull FC having made a big commitment and contribution to the club, both emotionally and financially, and look forward to seeing the club continue to grow.

“I remain financially committed to the club for the long term and believe wholeheartedly that the management team I have in place will drive the club forwards, both within performance and administration.”

“I firmly believe they will help demonstrate the club is heading in the right direction and hopefully performances like Sunday’s dramatic win over Warrington are a sign of that progress.”
