Hull City AFC part company with Phil Brown

Tue 8th Jun 2010 | Legal

Hull City AFC have officially parted company with manager Phil Brown who has been on gardening leave since March.

The League Managers Association (LMA)have released a statement today confirming that Phil Brown and Hull City A.F.C. have agreed terms in relation to his amicable departure from the club.

A statement from Hull City A.F.C. reads:

“The Club confirms that Phil Brown’s contract has ended with immediate effect and that he is no longer the manager of Hull City Football Club. We thank Phil for his significant contribution during his time as manager and we wish him well for the future. The Club greatly appreciates Phil’s co-operation, patience and understanding throughout the conciliation process. In addition, the Club would also like to thank the LMA for their constructive involvement throughout and we are pleased that we have been able to resolve all outstanding issues.”

Phil Brown stated;

“I am very sad to be leaving Hull City. My three and a half years at the club were a fantastic experience for me and I am extremely proud of the club’s achievements during that time. I would like to thank the players, my coaching staff and of course the fans for their magnificent support and commitment during my time as manager and I wish them well for the future. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the LMA and its advisors for their excellent support over recent months. The expertise, advice and guidance provided since March, has made a very difficult period of my career easier to manage. I would also like to personally thank Russell Bartlett for his professionalism throughout the conciliation process. Now that we have reached a resolution, I can now look forward to returning to management in the not too distant future.”

LMA Chief Executive, Richard Bevan said;

“The LMA shares Phil’s disappointment in him leaving Hull City, but we are pleased that an amicable settlement agreement has been reached. During his time as manager, Phil guided Hull into the Barclays Premier League, the first time the club had played in the game’s top flight during its 104-year history, and then went on to retain the club’s Premier League status for a second season. Phil can feel rightly proud of his successes at Hull and his achievements are testimony to his abilities as a manager. I would expect Phil to be back managing in the game at a very high level very soon.”
