On the day that City Till We Die formally submitted their written response to the FA over the club’s proposed name change (Friday 24 January) members of our committee met with Hull City Council Leader Steve Brady and Alan Johnson (MP for Hull West and Hessle) at the Guildhall.
The meeting was exceptionally positive and cordial, with both parties recognising and commenting upon how professionally the CTWD campaign has been run – and how much support has been widely captured by CTWD since our inception in September 2013.
This respectful and engaging meeting was essentially designed to establish how all parties could work together, move forward on the name change application submitted by the club, and plan for the future, whatever the decision the FA make.
All parties were keen to stress their commitment to work with Dr Allam on the matter and discuss how each of us can progress this relationship and the future of the club to everyone’s benefit.
Encouragingly, a further meeting is planned in the near future to follow up on initial foundations laid during our discussions. CTWD will be delighted to meet again with both Councillor Brady and Alan Johnson MP at the appropriate time.
