Duffen resigns as Pearson poised for Hull position

Hull City chairman Paul Duffen has resigned, as former Derby chairman Adam Pearson readies himself to return to the KC Stadium.

• Harry Harris on Phil Brown
• Dean Windass: Sack Brown
• Hull deny Brown sacking
• Accountants warn Tigers

Pearson was chiefly credited with turning round the fortunes of the Tigers during his first spell as chairman, is poised to return after Duffen's exit having left Pride Park on Wednesday.

A statement on the Hull City website read: ''The Club has received a letter of resignation from Paul Duffen, Executive Chairman of Hull City AFC and Superstadium Management Company Ltd, which has been accepted and is effective immediately. Paul's departure is on a totally amicable basis and he leaves with our best wishes as a friend of the Club and its Directors.

''The Club wishes to express its gratitude to Paul for his outstanding contribution as Chairman during a period of unprecedented success for Hull City AFC. The recruitment process has commenced in respect of the appointment of a new Executive Chairman and a further statement in relation to this will be issued by the Club on Monday 2nd November.''

Duffen issued his own statement, which read: ''When I succeeded Adam Pearson as chairman of Hull City Football Club in June 2007 I was very aware of the responsibility to build on his legacy.

''I articulated an intention to take the Tigers to the previously uncharted waters of the Premier League and to the eternal credit of the players and coaching staff, that seemingly ridiculous ambition was achieved 11 months later thanks to a victorious debut appearance at Wembley in the play-off final.

''The start to our maiden top-flight campaign broke all previous records for a newly promoted side and ensured that 2008 will forever be remembered as the most remarkable year in Hull City's history. Football is a results business and in the same way that I enjoyed the successes of the previous two seasons, so I must take ultimate responsibility for the disappointments of 2009.

''It has been a tremendous privilege to lead the Tigers on this amazing journey and I pay tribute to all the staff for their hard work and dedication as well as to the fans for their magnificent support. I am proud to have played my part and wish the club every success in the future.''

Duffen took over at the KC Stadium from Pearson in 2007 and oversaw the club's rise to the top flight for the first time in their history, which was achieved via victory in the 2008 Championship play-off final.

Hull avoided relegation on the final day of last season but chairman Duffen and manager Brown both came under pressure following their poor start to this campaign, which has seen them take just eight points from their opening 10 games.

Pearson resigned as chairman of football as Championship club Derby County on Wednesday, sparking suggestions he is set to return to East Yorkshire, citing the need to pursue "new challenges" as a key reason behind his decision and is expected to take control on Monday.
