Weekly News Update

January 5, 2018
Happy New Year to all supporters of Hull City AFC!!
After a short break over the festive period we are back with our weekly updates. Sadly for the Tigers there was no festive cheer as some at times encouraging performances returned only 2 points. It is clear inward activity is needed in the transfer market and the business City do will show the ambitions of the owners.
This weekend we face Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup in a game that both sides don’t look to be taking too seriously given their contrasting league ambitions. We wish all those travelling a safe trip. Here’s your update for the last week…
Hull City Ex Players Reunion
On Thursday 22nd March there will be a ‘Hull City Ex Players’ event in honour of the legend that is Chris Chilton
