FORMER Bantams striker Dean Windass has been appointed as the new manager of Toolstation Northern Counties East League Division One side East Hull.

And the 50-year-old, who also played for clubs including Hull City, Aberdeen and Oxford United, is due to take charge after his new side face Bradford's Campion on Saturday.

Windass, who had a brief spell as assistant-player manager under former City boss Colin Todd at Darlington in 2009, has played in the NCEL before, appearing for Barton Town Old Boys and Scarborough Athletic after retiring from the professional game.

He will have a tough task on his hands, East Hull having lost all nine of their opening league games, conceding 43 and scoring just three.

Windass replaces Andy Watts as he looks to kick-start the club's fortunes, starting with a home game against sixth-placed Campion.
