Welcome to HCST’s online Hull City AFC museum, which we intend to be a repository of, well, artifacts, objects of interest if not art. From programmes and fanzines to garments (fetching or ridiculous) worn by players and fans, from fan memorabilia to bits of Boothferry Park – if it can be photographed or scanned and (especially) if there’s a story to go with it, we intend to capture it here.
This is, obviously, going to be a labour of love which will take shape over a fairly lengthy period of time, so do bear with us. So who is this “us”? Your curators are –
Martin Batchelor, collector extraordinaire, who is working out the best way to present programmes in the museum;
Les Motherby, kit guru, who has provided the section on (surprise) the kits;
Ian Walters, who lugs the exhibits into the museum.
Feel free to contact us if you have anything of interest. (Bear in mind we’re after high-quality photographs, with a white background if possible, as well as the story behind each object if you have one.)
If you’ve a general query, or have a yen for joining the team, please contact Ian.
Here are the different sections of the museum. You can enter each room, or, to save shoe leather, you can access every part of the museum from this page by simply clicking on the links below. (We’ll make clear when the exhibits are open to view).
