Weekly News Update

November 3, 2017
Two games at home in the space of four days against opposition languishing in mid-table, surely these games will give us a good benchmark of where City are this season….. oh dear, sadly it appears so. Two very forgettable performances and six goals conceded, not to mention two penalties and a red card. City were pretty woeful for the majority of the 180 minutes and it is certainly not the form you want going into a Yorkshire derby away at lofty Sheffield United. Lets hope City’s three game unbeaten run away from home can continue.
Just one point to add given the events during the match against Nottingham Forest. We believe the vast, vast majority of supporters see the Allams leaving as the only way forward for the club. How fans go about asking or forcing them to leave, or indeed taking any action at all is still a split opinion. However, all fans’ opinion on this matter should be respected. For some supporting the team they loved has become a chore and they feel as though something has been stolen from them. It is therefore understandable why they feel the need to protest. Others feel the Allams will only leave when they are ready, and that may be the case, and in which case there is no point in attempting to hasten their exit. What is for certain is we all want to see Hull City succeed, we are all on the same side. If we are not together then we are losing the battle.
Here’s your update from the trust this week…
HCST Hull City Hall of Fame
On Wednesday we reluctantly announced the end of our involvement from the club’s new Hall of Fame.  
The main reason for this was we felt a Hall of Fame for Hull City should be named the Hull City Hall of Fame, or Hull City AFC Hall of Fame to give it its ceremonial title. The club’s decision to name it Tigers Hall of Fame as part of their failing, ongoing rebrand was not something we could support. You can read our statement in full here.

Development Review
After a pretty dismal week for the first team, the development squads gave a reason to smile with both the u23 and u18 sides winning 4-2 last Saturday.
In the morning the u18 side won away at Bolton Wanderers with goals from Keane Lewis-Potter, Dan Hawkins, Josh Thacker, Ahmed Salam.  Following the Forest game the u23 side beat Birmingham City at the KCOM with goals from Tom Powell, Robbie McKenzie, Liam Edwards, Ben Hinchliffe.
The u18 side are at home to Birmingham City at Bishop Burton College this Saturday with kick-off at 12:00.  The u23 side take on Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Performance centre tonight, kick-off at 19:00.
Dan Batty has started a month’s loan at National League side FC Halifax Town making his first start last Saturday and had an immediate impact with a goal in the side’s 4-2 defeat at Tranmere Rovers.
Charlie Andrew has started a ‘work experience placement’ with step 5 side Pickering Town in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division.  He too played last Saturday at home against local side Hall Road Rangers and was only beaten in the 93rd minute in what ended a 1-1 draw.
