Weekly News Update

April 15, 2018
Here’s your Trust update…
Cocessionary Pricing Vote V2 – Update
HCST are very disappointed that despite writing to club officials last month seeking the result of the first ballot and asking questions over why there was no consultation over a second ballot, we’ve had no response.
We’ve shared full details with our affiliate organisations Supporters Direct and The Football Supporters Federation who have both contacted the club on our behalf.
We are now awaiting feedback from SD and FSF who we understand have also updated The EFL.
We will update members as soon as possible but again call on the club for dialogue and ask fans to ignore the second ballot.
RIP Eddie Cowell – A City Legend
The Trust were saddend to hear of the recent passing of Eddie Cowel aged 91.
Eddie was involved in the youth setup at City for 34 years starting as a schoolboy coach in 1978. Our thoughts are with Freddie’s family and friends at this sad time.

Development Review
It was ‘goals galore’ on Monday afternoon when the under 23 side travelled to take on Ipswich Town. 
They came away with a 3-4 victory thanks to goals from Callum Smith (2), Robbie McKenzie and Liam Edwards.  They are next in action on Saturday, after the first team play Sheffield Wednesday at the KCOM, when they take on Millwall in a 17:00 scheduled kick-off. We hope that many of you will stay behind to lend them your support.  Then next Thursday they travel down to take on Crystal Palace in a 14:00 kick-off.
It has been a slightly disappointing week for the under 18 side.  Last Saturday they were defeated 2-1 at Charlton Athletic, Max Sheaf scoring for the young Tigers.  Then on Tuesday a young side travelled to Burnley and were comprehensively beaten 4-1, with Keane Lewis-Potter on the score sheet.  They have two quick opportunities to get back to winning ways.  On Saturday they entertain Colchester United in an 11:00 kick-off at Bishop Burton, then on Tuesday they travel down to Millwall’s training ground for an 11:00 kick-off.
Hull City Ladies
The Tigresses went back to winning ways last Sunday with a hard fought 1-0 victory away at Bolton Wanderers.
This week the girls are away again at 7th place Chester le Street.
Sitting proudly at the top of the league, with 6 games to go the Tigresses are 10 points clear of their main rivals, (Brighouse Town), who do have 3 games in hand.
The forthcoming clash between the sides at  the Hull University playing ground on April 29th is increasingly looking like it will be the title decider.
