Weekly News Update

September 22, 2017
 A real “game of two halves” on Saturday as City drew 1-1 with Sunderland. A poor first half effort saw Sunderland go into the break ahead however a much improved second half, with a noticeable contribution from David Meyler rescued a point. Whilst we are talking about Meyler, please can people stop singing that ridiculous song! On Saturday we head to Reading looking to end our wretched away form, we wish a safe journey to all fans heading down and hope it is all worth it! Here’s the update from the Trust this week…
Concession Update
On Wednesday we published our update on concessions. The statement in full can be read here.

Since the Premier League ruling two weeks ago we have been in discussions with EFL over whether there is a concession rule they are able to enforce. Sadly this is not the case and therefore we are going to have to campaign for a rule change defining what constitutes a concession and what is an appropriate discount. As always we will keep you up to date with any progress. This bring us on nicely to…

FSF Meeting
On Monday 18th September HCST Director Phil Walton represented the Trust at the Football Supporters’ Federation Meeting in London.

Concession pricing at Hull City was on the agenda and we have the support of many other Trusts in our fight to establish a clear concession rule. We also have the backing of the FSF in this issue and they have confirmed that concessions will be put on the agenda for their meeting with the EFL in October..

HCST Scarves
As you may have seen on Twitter and Facebook we have a successor to the “City till we Die” scarves released.

These have already proved to be very popular with many orders already received. Priced, if we may say, very reasonably at £5 plus postage & packaging (£2 UK) there’s no excuse not to be putting your order in here.

Hull City U23’s Match Review
Thanks to those fans that stayed behind at the KCOM on Saturday to watch the U23s development side take on Coventry City U23s after the Hull City versus Sunderland fixture.

Jon Beale said, on the club website, that both he and the team appreciated the support.  The game itself was an entertaining affair which produced a second victory of the season; 2-1 with goals coming from Greg Olley and Greg Luer.  This did not reflect the dominance of the home side and the victory should have been more comfortable.

The next outing for the development side is on Monday 25 September when they take on Burnley U23s at the Eon Visual Media Stadium in North Ferriby.  Kick-off is at 19:00 and admission is free to season card members, otherwise £4 for adults and £2 for concessions.  Again we encourage Trust Members to go and watch the ‘next generation’ who are playing some excellent football.

Memorial Plaques Update
As mentioned last week arangements are progressing for the unveiling of the Lord Mayors Centenary Plaques commemorating Billy Bly, Raich Carter and Andy Davidson contributions to the City.

Trust Chairman Geoff Bielby has been working with Hull City Council on this project and can now reveal the official unveiling will be at the Tiger Rags exhibition in The Streetlife Museum on Saturday 30th September at noon. Family members of the recipients will be attending as will former players.
