New head coach Lee Radford told to deliver trophies for Hull FC

Lee Radford has been appointed as the new head coach of Hull FC. And the owner, Adam Pearson, is confident Radford can turn the club from nearly men into trophy winners.

Radford, 34, has been appointed on a three-year deal to succeed Peter Gentle, who parted company with two years left on his contract after Hull's humiliating 76-18 defeat by Huddersfield in the Super League play-offs.

"I want us to finish consistently in the higher echelons of the league and to be challenging for Grand Finals and Challenge Cups on a regular basis," Pearson said. "I don't see why we can't have that as an objective."
