Weekly News Update

October 26, 2018

The Tigers poor start to the season has continued after the international break. A point at home to fellow strugglers Preston North End was not enough and then another late goal cost City a hard-fought point away at Bristol City on Wednesday night.

Improvements must be made with relegation looking more likely with every passing week. City head to an out of form Bolton Wanderers this weekend and it is imperative they come back from Lancashire wth at least a point.

Here’s your update from the trust this week……

Wembley Stadium Sale Called Off.
The proposed sale of Wembeley Stadium has been called off after Shahid Khan, owner of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham FC, withdrew his £600m offer  – citing a lack of support across the game.

More than 2,000 supporters took part in the Footiball Supporters Federation consultation on the sale.

You can read details of the FSF Survey results here.

Funds available for Local Youth Football teams.
Do You (or someone you know) run a Hull Boys Sunday Football team or an East Riding Girls Team?

The collapse of the  Wembley sale might result in no extra funds going to grass roots football, but  don’t worry – funding is available locally.

Several years ago, the then Tigers Co-Operative, now Hull City Supporters Trust, donated £6,000 to support local youth football teams.

For more details of the scheme follow the link here.

There are still funds available, of up to £100 per team. All you need to do is complete the application form available here.

Good Luck
Development Review
Last Saturday the under 18 side travelled to the Barnfield Training Centre take on Burnley.  

Despite hitting the post twice and a goal from Will Jarvis, Burnley were to prove too good winning 3-1.  On Saturday they take on Sheffield United at Bishop Burton in an 11:00 kick off.

After the disappointing 1-1 draw against Preston North End last Saturday it was the turn of the under 23 side to entertain the fans who stayed behind.  The match was not a classic and City had the chance to goal ahead late in the second half but Callum Smith crashed his penalty against the bar.  In keeping with recent first team performances the game was lost in added time when defensive mistakes provided Sheffield Wednesday with the only goal of the game.  On Monday they travel to fellow Yorkshire rivals Leeds United for a 13:00 kick off.

Two members of the senior squad had a run out in Saturday’s match with Ondrej Mazuch on for 80 minutes and David Milinkovic for the full 90.
