FORMER Premier League football star Dean Windass will make a special guest appearance at Featherstone Rovers later this month.

The 48-year-old former Hull City, Bradford City, Aberdeen and Middlesbrough player will visit LD Nutrition Stadium as part of the club’s ‘It’s Good To Talk’ initiative, in conjunction with Wakefield Council’s ‘Five Ways To Wellbeing’ campaign.

The event, in the Rovers clubhouse’s Cappers Bar on Thursday June 29, is free of charge to all those wishing to attend.

It will get underway at 7pm, with doors opening at 6pm.

Windass will speak of his memorable footballing career, which spanned more than two decades, and also discuss life after sport.

After starting his career with North Ferriby United in 1990, the Hull-born striker made a total of 634 appearances in the professional game.

He was promoted to the Premier League with Bradford City in 1999 and, in 2008, scored the winning goal at Wembley to send Hull City into the sport’s top flight.

Since retiring, Windass has worked as a pundit for Sky Sports and appeared in a variety of other roles.

Anyone wishing to attend the event on June 29 should call 01977-702386 to book a place.
