Weekly News Update

April 27, 2018
It was a history making game last weekend as City drew 5-5 away at Bristol City. It was a game that perhaps split opinions with some enjoying the fact there were 10 goals in a game whilst other bemoaned the inability to win despite scoring 5 and some dodgy defending! We can see the merits in both opinions but games like that don’t happen very often so we’ll enjoy being part of it despite the frustration of conceding in the 94th minute!
The point also meant City are safe and will be playing championship football next season. This would normally be a positive if it wasn’t for the worry of another summer of underinvestment in the transfer market, contracts running out and divisive ticket policies!
City this weekend welcome promotion chasing Cardiff City, a club that has gone through its own problems in recent season, and we wish then well after Saturday if they do go on to gain promotion.
Here’s your trust update this week…
Hull City Shirt Auction in aid of Trawler Memorial Groups
HCST are pleased to announce that some of the shirts worn at the Chelsea game commemorating the Triple Trawler disaster are to be  sold.
The shirts have kindly been donated by the Club to the Triple Trawler Memorial Group who asked the Trust to advise them. We in turn have asked Les Motherby of @HullCityKits to organise the auction.
The funds raised will be split between the four Trawler Memorial Groups
More details can be found here on the Hull City Kits website.
This is an excellent example of the Trust working with the Club and other Fans organisations to benefit the local community and hopefully will lead to many more joint ventures.
Jacqui Forster RIP
It is with great sadness that the Trust learned this week that Jacqui Forster of Supporters Direct had passed away after a long battle with cancer. 
Jaqui helped in the formation of almost 200 Supporters Trust and was particularly helpful to us over the proposed name change campaign and with the formation of HCST.
Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this sad time.
EFL – FSF Survey  ‘Stand up for Choice’
Linked to the recent Parliamentary Petition on Safe Standing passing 100,000 signatures, the EFL & FSF are conducting a survey of fans view on having standing areas at venues. 
The survey only takes a couple of minutes to do and can be filled in here.
Hull City Ladies
The damage of a shock 2-1 defeat for Hull City Ladies at Crewe Alexandra last Sunday was minimised by main title rivals Brighouse Town going down at home to Morecambe by the same scoreline.
So the Tigresses will be looking to bounce back when they host Brighouse this Sunday at the Hull University playing ground on Inglemire Lane at 2pm in a game which will have a massive impact on who wins the league.
With 4 games to go, 8 points could be enough from these games due to our Ladies superior goal difference but a win this weekend will mean 2 points from the following 3 games is all that will be required to secure the title.
So if you’ve not ventured down to see the Tigresses this season, what better opportunity than effectively a title decider. Good luck Ladies
