Weekly News Update

October 8, 2017
It was six of the best at the KCOM on Saturday as City took apart a lacklustre Birmingham City team with three goals in each half from six different goal scorers. It was a definite improvement from the Preston game four days prior and certainly a performance to build on going into the game away at Norwich City after the international break. More of the same please City! Here’s your update from the Trust…
 RIP Sir Les
Only a few days after HCST helped unveil Lord Mayors Centenary Plaques for three City greats we heard the sad news that Les Mutrie had lost his long battle with cancer at the age of 66.  
Les Mutrie was an ‘old fashioned Hull City legend’ and like the players honoured with Plaques played in an era when supporting Hull City was far less complicated. He was a proper no nonsense footballer who gave his all.
Mutrie may not have clocked up  hundreds of games for City but during the 132 he did play, he scored 50 goals and still holds the record for scoring in nine consecutive games..
He was a fans favourite during his career at Hull City and our thoughts are with his family at this time.
Here’s a video of Les talking during the 1981/1982 season courtesy of TigerTube.
Centenary Plaques Unveiling
Last Saturday saw a proud day for the Trust as in partnership with Hull City Council we were able to secure a place in history for 3 Hull City legends.
Raich Carer, Billy Bly and Andy Davidson were honoured with memorial plaques at the Tiger Rags exhibition at the Streetlife Museum in Hull. You can read a full roundup of the event on our website here
Tiger Rags Extended to 19th November.
Great news, the highly successful Tiger Rags kit exhibition by Les Motherby has had its stay at the Streetlife Museum extended until 19th November.
If you haven’t been to look yet then it is a must for any City fan. We understand the display may be getting refreshed so if you’ve already been it may be worth a second visit! Keep an eye on @HullCityKits on social media for any announcements. You can see Les talking on this video from this weekends Centenary Plaques ceremony mentioned above.
