A very good pal of mine, Alan Jefferson who is an avid Fev supporter informed me yesterday about Dean Windass making an appearance at the LD Nutrition Stadium in Featherstone this coming week in part of the ‘It’s good to talk’ initiative. Over the past few years I was saddened when it came to light of the reported problems Dean has had with alcohol, depression and bankruptcy. To thousands, Deano is a massive hero and has had a very illustrious career which he can be very proud of, but too many times when retirement comes for many athletes, life doesn’t seem that great with some of the Nation’s most loved sportsmen needing support and help such as Gazza and Bruno.

One of the many problems that face male health and support is society’s standing, things need to change, men need to talk about our problems and we need the same support that women openly receive, and it would be great if some City even Hull fans can make the short trip to Featherstone and show the support he deserves, also sharing our favourite Deano moments and goals.

Windass will talk about his footballing career and his life after the sport, this will give a fantastic opportunity to delve into the personal psyche at first hand of one of our greatest and loved players from the past couple of decades. Even if you have no interest in football but would like to know more about mental wellbeing or know someone that’s going through the same difficulties Dean Windass has gone through, it should still prove an insightful evening to all.

First of all the entry is FREE OF CHARGE
