After an excellent start to the season City have been pegged back in recent weeks, losing three games in a very busy October.
Hopefully this is just a bump in the road, but it is concerning that a number of teams are choosing to play a formation against which we don’t seem to have an answer.
It’s the FA Cup this weekend with the visit of Fleetwood Town and chance for City to avenge the defeat at the start of October. On the upside, at least there will be no Captain Pugwash music! Commentary on the game will be available on BBC Radio Humberside.
The National Lockdown has dashed any slim chance of getting fans back into games in the forseeable future.
It is now more urgent than ever that some form of financial support for clubs is forthcoming, as without it many fans may not have clubs to go back to when things return to ‘normal’.
Chris Chilton Appeal
The Trust are pleased to announce that they will be contributing to the Chris Chilton appeal in a number of ways.
We will make an initial donation of £222 to the Chris Chilton fund which has been set up to pay for his care. This is a symbolic amount to recognise his record goal scoring achievements in black and amber. You can make a donation to the fund here.
Until 31/12/20 a donation will be made from the sale of every 1964/65 replica shirt produced by World Retro. The iconic shirt can be purchased here.
*** Please Note: To recive your shirt by Christmas you need to place your order by midnight on Monday 30th November. ***
More detais on our response to the appeal can be found on the Trusts website here.

Amber Ribbon Campaign.
The Trust have launched The Amber Ribbon Campaign to try and bring unity to the fanbase.
The Campaign allows fans (not just Trust members) to show their support for Hull City AFC and to unite a fragmented fanbase behind the club by displaying the Amber Ribbon symbol – either as a badge, a window/car sticker or an actual ribbon.
Badges/Stickers can be purchased from the Trust Shop here.
We urge all fans to participate.
