Weekly News Update

November 30, 2018

It was a pair of mixed results for City in their home double-header. Firstly a 2-0 defeat to a decent Nottingham Forest side with more defensive mishaps was a disappointing performance and result given the Tigers’ recent good form.

However City upped their game for the visit of free scoring, top of the table Norwich City on Tuesday with a gritty performance to gain a creditable draw in appalling conditions. It was a sad site in the stadium however with swathes or empty seats evidence of the rot the club finds itself in.

Next up for City is a trip to Loftus Road to face QPR . The R’s have only lost one of their last 9 matches so will provide a tough test for City who will be aiming to move out of the relegation zone

Here’s your update from the trust this week…

The Trust has been contacted this week by a gentleman named Graham Finch, whose father Roy, made 3 guest appearances for City in 1944.

Following some detective work by some of the Trust Board, using the excellent resources of TigerBase, The Hull City AFC Database Project, we not only discovered which games Roy played in but also that he scored 2 goals in the process.

Graham is very keen to purchase programmes for those games which were against Leeds United (home) on 14/10/1944, Newcastle United (home), on 11/11/1944 and finally Gateshead (away) on 25/11/1944.

So if you’re a programme collector, (or know someone who is), and have these  programmes in your collection, then please cemail us here and we’ll forward your details on to Graham.

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
It’s been a quiet week for the Development squad after the under 23 side’s match with Barnsley fell foul of the weather last Friday. 

The under 18’s match against Crewe Alexandra did go ahead at Bishop Burton.  The result was the same as the under 23’s the previous Monday, a 2-3 defeat with Keane Lewis-Potter scoring both the City goals.

The week ahead is busy though for the under 18 side which travels to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday for a league game (KO 11:30) and then on Wednesday take on Cardiff City under 18s in the third round of the FA Youth Cup.  This game is being held at the KCOM with kick off scheduled for 19:00 and tickets for this game are being sold for £3 at the Tiger Leisure outlets.

It’s cup action too for the under 23 side who face the long trek to Swansea City today (Friday)  in the Premier League Cup.  This match is at Landore Training Ground and is scheduled to kick off at 19:00.

Hull City Ladies
Last Sunday saw the Tigresses suffer a 2nd successive league defeat, losing 1-4 away at a much more experienced Stoke City Ladies team.

This Sunday, the girls are on their travels again but this time away at Long Eaton United in the 2nd round of the Women’s FA Cup.

City play in a higher league level than their opponents so will be confident of a confidence boosting win to continue their cup run.
