It’s back to domestic actions this weekend after the international break. City entertain fellow strugglers Ipswich Town at the KCOM on Saturday knowing defeat would see the Tigers drop into the bottom three. It should provide a good opportunity to get a first home win of the season in what could be a nervy affair.
City then head to Wigan on Tuesday night. The Latics have impressed on their return to the Championship and sit an enviable position in the top half of the table. This will no doubt be a difficult game and a point would be a decent return.
Here’s your update from the Trust this week…
Supporters Committee Nominations
The Club have recently asked for nominations to this seasons Supporters Committee.
The Trust have a number of observations on this:
– The Club propose two meetings for this season, it is our understanding that this reduction goes against the recommendations made by the Football Supporters Federation (FSF).
– The Club will decide which fans can attend from each stand with no criteria given around the selection process, perhaps the club could run a ballot so fans can decide who will represent them?
– The Club have not made it clear at this point which Fans Organisations will be invited to attend, for open and meaningful dialogue no supporters organisation should be excluded.
We encourage all our members to submit applications if they are eligible.
More details on how to apply can be found here.
Board Meeting Minutes
On Monday 10th September the HCST board held our latest bi-monthly board meeting.
You can see what we discussed by reading the minutes which can be found here.
Again the Development sides are showing improvement with each new fixture and the last 7 days have been good.
The under 18 side managed to secure their first point of the season back against Queens Park Rangers at Bishop Burton College last Saturday. Jake Bayram’s second-half penalty secured the 1-1 draw. This Saturday they are on their travels taking on Barnsley in an 11:00.
On Monday night the under 23 were excellent when they took on Watford at the Roy West Centre. Lewis Ritson, Robbie McKenzie and Keane Lewis-Potter (2) scored the goals for Jon Beale’s side in a comprehensive 4-1 victory. They are next in action away against Birmingham City this Saturday in a 12:00 kick off.
Last week we reported that free admission to under 23 games had been granted to all matchcard holders as well as members. Apologies for not picking up that it was no longer possible to pay on the gate. We understand that everyone was admitted on Monday but that people were informed that this would be a one off. As a Trust we do not feel that sufficient time or publicity was given to fans to obtain a matchcard free of charge and we have written to the club to request dialogue and that the matter is re-considered.
Hull City Ladies
The Tigresses went down to a 2-0 defeat against high flying Blakburn Rovers last Sunday, but there were plenty of positives in the performance.
This Sunday the Ladies are back at home against Fylde who have also had mixed results so far this season and probably a game the Tigresses are targeting to win.Please note this match kicks off at 3pm, (an hour later than usual), at the Hull University Sports Ground on Inglemire Lane.
