Weekly News Update

November 10, 2017
At least we won’t lose this weekend… The International break has probably come at a good time for City. Three successive defeats culminating in a woeful second half at Bramall Lane has left City hovering just above the relegation zone. A team that has at times proved very potent attacking has all too often been let down by a generous defence that is conceding far too many goals. Two weeks on the training field will hopefully allow Mr Slutsky to work with the team and come up with a plan to stop this slide down the table. Here’s your weekly news update from the Trust…
STOP PRESS – Message from the Vice Chairman.
Hull City Vice Chairman Ehab Allam has posted a message
here about the possible return of Concession pricing and proposed dialogue with the fans.
We note the following: ‘* One Junior ticket per Adult ticket only, additional Junior tickets will be priced at the Concession price’ (The same as the current price – so no real saving at all…)
Please let us have your opinion on this – contact us here.
FSF Regional Meeting
At the recent Yorkshire FSF (Football Supporters’ Federation) meeting that HCST hosted in Hull, we were asked for suggestions as to what measures should be in place to ensure existing club owners were ‘Fit and Proper’.
We welcome any suggestions or opinions that you may have on this matter. Please email us here.
We saw this week good news for Blackpool fans in their long running battle against owner Karl Oyston. Clubs should never be put in this situation where owners and fans are in such dispute with each other, a situation we are sadly all to familiar with at Hull City. But for now, congratulation to Blackpool supporters.
Les Mutrie Banner
HCST was pleased to see that the Les Mutrie banner from the Nottingham Forest game has been donated to his family who were very grateful. RIP Les.

Charity Football Match – Cure for Hayley
Ian Ashbee and other Hull City legends are taking part in a charity game at Beverley Longcroft School, Sunday at 11:30am.
They will be facing a team of Health Club Members/Staff with the game being played in support of www.cure4hayley.com There will also be a raffle and after match food at the Willerby and Kirk Ella Snooker Club.
Development Review
Last week was a bit of a mixed bag for the development sides.  Last Saturday the u18 side lost by the only goal of the game against Birmingham City at Bishop Burton College.
The u23 side did well to win 2-3 last Friday evening at Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League Cup which keeps their interest alive after the defeat to Exeter City.  Twice Albion came back from behind to equalise but in the end City proved to strong with goals from Ben Hinchliffe, Tom Powell and Keane Lewis-Potter.  Monday though was an afternoon to forget at Bolton Wanderers with the u23 side going down 6-1, the consolation goal from Tom Powell.
The u23 side are next in action on Monday meeting Sheffield United at the Stocksbridge Park Steels ground with kick off at 14:00.  The u18 side do not have a game this week.
There has been more loan activity involving City development players.  Josh Clackstone has joined Dan Batty on a month’s loan at FC Halifax Town.  He will hopefully get his debut this weekend when the Shaymen take on Woking FC at home.
International Break
Once again we are on International Break week.  A lot of fans view this as an inconvenience, though with Hull City’s recent form perhaps it is a welcome break! 
There are a number of local teams where it is still possible to get your football fix and just enjoy a game without all the just enjoy a game without all the accompanying baggage.
Dean Windass will be a special guest at Hall Road Rangers on Tuesday 14 November and will be available for a chat and autographs.  More details about this and other local non-league games can be found here.
Hull City Ladies
City ladies are next back in action this Sunday with a double header starting at 12:30 pm, Hull University.
They First Team are playing Steel City Wanderers FC Ladies in the Women’s FA Cup, Followed at 2:00 pm by the Reserves vs Guisley Vixens. With no club football why not get down and support them. HCST Junior members also get free entry with the season pass they will have received recently in the post.
