Weekly News Update

March 9, 2018
Just the one match since our last newsletter after City’s game against Ipswich was called off due to the weather last Saturday.
Tuesday night saw City put in arguably their worst performance of the season in a 2-1 defeat to Millwall. The first half really was one to forget as Millwall took the lead inside a minute after some shocking defending and then doubled it with a looped header with nobody in black and amber on the post. The second half was slightly better and the goal scoring return of Abel Hernandez much welcome.
Nigel Adkins publicly criticised the players after the game. It isn’t in doubt that they deserved criticising after such a poor performance however whether this was best done in the media only time will tell.
This Saturday Norwich City are the visitors to the KCOM, a game that on paper is winnable and one City must take some points from if they are to keep their cushion to the relegation places. Here’s your update from the Trust this week

Development Review
The inclement weather has badly affected football but on Monday the under 23 managed to play.  They travelled to The Impact Arena to take on Nottingham Forest, losing 3-0.

Saturday is a busy day for Hull City.  In the morning the under18 development side takes on Crystal Palace at Bishop Burton, kick off at 11:00.  Then following the first team match against Norwich at the KCOM, the under 23 side will take on Leeds United.  We hope that good number of you decide to stay on and show your support.
The under 18 side is then in action on Tuesday 13th when they take on Leeds United at Bishop Burton College in an 11:00 kick off.  The under 23 side are also in action mid week.  On Thursday 15th they travel to Tameside Stadium to take on Burnley with kick off at 19:00.
Hull City Ladies
After suffering a cup defeat last week against West Ham Ladies, the Tigresses are at home again as they return to league action against 4th placed Morecambe this Sunday.
Just a point behind the league leaders but with 2 games in hand, the Tigresses will be looking to reclaim top-spot.
As usual, kick off time at the Hull University Sports Ground is 2pm and if you’ve never been before, get yourself down there and cheer the girls on.
