Adam Pearson relinquished control of Hull yesterday and declared himself confident that the club´s new owners can guide them into the Barclays Premier League.

Pearson completed a deal to sell the Tigers to a southern-based consortium headed by Paul Duffen, a former chief executive of Catalyst Media and shareholder in bookmakers SIS, who replaces him as chairman.

"It became acutely clear last season that on my own I had taken the club as far as I could and really needed the support of a financially stronger board," said Pearson, who will remain on the board of directors. We now have that board in place to take the club forward."
