Weekly News Update

April 6, 2018
Two games against teams looking to be playing Premier League football next season and you have to say, two very welcome points. City could have perhaps won either game, but they could have also lost either so overall a share of the spoils in both games was a fair result and keeps the gap to the bottom three at a reassuring seven points.
City aren’t safe yet, there’s still games to be won and perhaps Saturday offers a perfect opportunity for that. QPR visit the KCOM, a ground they don’t particularly enjoy visiting and a win here would see City really pile the pressure on those currently in the bottom three.
City then head to Burton Albion (ground tick alert!) on Tuesday where a victory could well consign the hosts to league one football next season. We’re sure four points from these next two games would see City as good as safe but then we never do it easily do we?
Here’s your update from the Trust….

Development Review
Last Monday the under 18 side travelled down to Nottingham Forest’ Football Academy and were comprehensively beaten 6-0.  They are next in action tomorrow when they travel down to Charlton Athletic’s training ground for an 11:00 kick off.  Then on Tuesday they are away again at The Barnfield Training Centre for a 14:00 kick off against Burnley.
Last Tuesday the under 23 side took on Beverley Town in the East Riding FA Senior Cup semi final on the all-weather pitch at Hull University due to the continuing inclement weather.  They ran out 4-0 winners with goals from Greg Olley (2), Billy Chadwick and Robbie McKenzie.  On Monday they travel down to the Ipswich Town training centre for a fixture that kicks off at 13:00.
Development players are still doing well whilst out on loan.  Brandon Fleming’s spell at Gainsborough Trinity has been extended to the end of the season and Will Annan picked up the March Goal of the Month award at Tadcaster Albion.
Hull City Ladies
After a disappointing draw at bottom of the table Mossley Hill last Sunday, the Tigresses are on the road again this week away at mid-table Bolton Wanderers.
Our Ladies won a tight match 2-0 in the home fixture between the teams and will be aiming to improve on recent performances to cement their place at the top of the table.
