To all Hull City Supporters,
As you will no doubt be aware, Nigel Adkins newly assembled but generally young-looking squad have ensured a difficult start to the new season, and it’s already looking like a long 8 months ahead.
Whether the moderate support from the Club owners to replace the exodus of players leaving over the summer period is enough to ensure another relegation battle can be avoided remains to be seen, but most fans are rightly concerned.
We have been in direct contact with the club via numerous e-mails and face to face meetings in recent months on various issues affecting the wider fan base, but despite documenting our concerns in a formal capacity, the Club have simply continued to ignore our requests for clarity and feedback on the issues raised.
As a Trust Board, we will always have the interests of our members at the forefront of everything we do, and as the Club have failed to engage with our reasonable requests, we have now escalated our concerns to the English Football League, Football Supporters Federation and Supporters Direct.
All 3 have acknowledged we have legitimate concerns and will be contacting the Club senior management on our behalf. (We will of course keep our members informed once we receive relevant responses and feedback)
Now like no other time, is the time for all Hull City supporters to pull together. Together we will be stronger, with greater likelihood of success for reuniting our fan base and re-igniting the enjoyment of OUR club that we cherish so dearly.
