Weekly News Update

October 12, 2018
A disappointing defeat against Sheffield Utd has left City bottom of the Championship. It looked like the Tigers may have been heading for a point against their Yorkshire rivals and had just created their best opportunity of the game before giving away yet another cheap goal. This time it came from the penalty spot after a needless grapple in the box.
The result put Sheffield Utd top of the table, which doesn’t make a 1-0 defeat look too bad, however it is another game City have thrown away which is a very worrying trend.
No club football this weekend, which might be a good thing!
Here’s your update from the trust this week……

FSF – National Non-League Day
The Football Supporters Federation (FSF) are again promoting National Non-League Day on Saturday 13th October.
With the international break meaning that no Premier League or Championship fixtures will be taking place over that weekend – Non-League Day (now in its 9th year) gives fans who normally follow the professional game a chance to sample their local non-league team.
More details of the scheme & how to find a match near you can be found here.
#worldmentalhealthday – MindHEY
Wednesday 10th October was #worldmental healthday. This week we are featuring the work of HCST Community Partner Hull & East Yorkshire Mind.
Hull and East Yorkshire Mind is a local mental health charity, working so that everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.
The impact of mental illness can be devastating. Not only for those directly affected but also their families, friends, colleagues and loved ones.
Hull and East Yorkshire Mind helps people improve their mental health. They work with individuals to support them in a way that works for them- building confidence and social networks, helping people establish a safe place to live and call home, helping people to find hope and to recover.
They also work to prevent mental ill health through education and prevention work, and we campaign to challenge the stigma and discrimination that sometimes occurs with mental health problems.
Mind have linked with the English Football League to promote awareness about mental health, and HCST have partnered with the Hull and East Yorkshire branch to tie in with that.
More information about Hull and East Yorkshire Mind can be found on their website here. They are also active on Facebook & Twitter.
Hull City Ladies
City Ladies started well against Sunderland Ladies in their league encounter last Sunday but ultimately went down to a 4-2 defeat against their more experienced opponents.
This week, league action is put to one side as the Tigresses host Birmingham & West Midlands Ladies FC in the FA Women’s National League Cup.
Kick off on Sunday at the Hull University Sports Ground on Inglemire Lane is 2pm as usual, so if you need a football fix and can’t make a non-league game this weekend then go and show our Ladies some support.
