Weekly News Update

November 18, 2017

So, after a weekend of watching a young, inexperienced England team keep out the world’s top 2 ranked nations, we are back to the bread and butter of club football this Saturday. In what will be the club’s remembrance fixture we will take on Ipswich Town looking to get back on track after three successive defeats. A leaky defence has been our undoing in recent matches so hopefully the break has given the team much needed time on the training pitch! Here’s the update from the Trust this week…

Statement on Call for Amnesty.
Last Friday Hull City released this statement calling for an amnesty in protests along with the reintroduction of “Concessions”.

On Wednesday we issued our response which you can read here. We believe the proposed concessions are not acceptable in their current format given it is impossible for someone to pay less for a ticket.

We are pleased to announce however that we have now been invited to an extra Supporters’ Committee Meeting on Wednesday 22nd November where Assem and Ehab Allam will be present. After consultation with our members we feel the meeting should concentrate on 3 core issues:

1. Concessions

2. Supporter Engagement

3. Branding

Please feel free to contact us here should you wish us to raise any other points.

Black and Amber Sale Friday 24th November.
Next week we will be hosting our own “Black and Amber Friday Sale”. Check out the Trust shop for fantastic deals on all our Merchandise which will make perfect Christmas presents!
We will also keep you updated via Facebook and Twitter next Friday with all the special offers. All profits are reinvested into the Trust to support our aims and objectives so your purchases do make a difference to many people.

Development Review
Monday saw a fine 0-3 win for the u23 side away at Sheffield United with goals from Keane Lewis-Potter (2) and Billy Chadwick.  Last Saturday an academy side played Sculcoates Amateurs in County Senior cup.  Two goals from Ahmed Salam and an extra time winner from Jacob Greaves secured a 2-3 win.

The next academy action is on Saturday when the u23 side take on Sheffield Wednesday at the KCOM.  The match is due to kick off at 17:00 and will follow the senior side’s match with Ipswich Town so we hope some members will stay on and lend their support.  Also on Saturday the u18 side will meet Huddersfield Town at Bishop Burton College with kick-off scheduled at 11:00.

Hull City Ladies
City ladies have progressed to the second round of the Womens FA Cup after beating Steel City Wanderers FC Ladies 4-1 last week.

They have been drawn away to Derby County, the tie will be played on Sunday 3rd December.

The Reserves play Bolton Wanderers ladies Reserves at Hull University on Sunday 19th November, kick off 2:00 p.m. HCST Junior members also get free entry with the season pass they will have received recently in the post.
