In this special year that celebrates the 15th Anniversary of Hull City’s famous victory in the Championship Play-Offs and our first ever promotion to the Premier League, we are pleased to announce that we have secured a signing of an exclusive edition of Dean Windass’ new book “DEANO: Life after Football….”.
Dean talks about life as a boy growing up playing on the streets beneath the stadium, he got to play the game he loved, a game that then defined him for a lifetime after being crystallised with a volley in front of thousands of fans, some who travelled from those very streets to see him smash in his multi-million-pound goal at Wembley.
“It’s Roy of The Rovers Stuff!!”.
But what happens when all that goes away, the phone stops ringing, and you find yourself naked, empty, and scrambling to find yourself again?
Dean shares his highs and lows through life during and after the game. Drink, Divorce, Despair, Reinvention, Positive Mental Health, and learning how to live again, after football.
With no stone unturned, the straight-talking Yorkshireman pulls no punches and simply says it how he sees it. Commentary on everyday challenges and hassles, great insight to the Nations favourite sport, as well as plenty of hilarious stories as you might imagine from the natural born joker (DOB: April 1st). Imagine that…?
From a career full of accolades scoring 1 in 3 of every game he ever played. He covers addiction, depression, and times where he’s nearly bowed out of life.
Learning ‘Life after football’, Deano shares his own wins, and speaks as a man in a game plagued by a disease people didn’t talk about enough, and still don’t.
“If it helps someone else too, I’m happy”.
On Saturday, 4th March 2023, Dean will be at Pearsons, on Princes Avenue in Hull to sign limited editions of his new book, as well as to hold a Q and A session with those attending. The event starts at 12 noon.
So come along, enjoy a great atmosphere, share the company of one of the club’s living legends and pick up an exclusive version of his brand new book “DEANO: Life after football…..”.
