CHAIRMAN

WELCOME

ACUN ILICALI

GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME BACK TO THE MKM STADIUM FOR WHAT IS A

SPECIAL NIGHT AT THE MKM STADIUM FOR OUR MATCH AGAINST STOKE CITY.

I cannot talk about matters of football

without first paying my respects to

Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II who

passed away last Thursday. The Queen

was an inspiration to so many, and

served the United Kingdom with honour,

distinction, and grace for over 70 years.

My thoughts, and those of everyone

connected to Hull City, are with His

Royal Highness King Charles III and

the whole Royal Family at this time of

mourning. Tonight, we pay tribute as a

family to a truly remarkable woman.

Returning to football, we have started

the season well and have put ourselves

in a good position in the Championship

table. Our home form has been key to

that, and it’s been great to see so many of

you supporting the boys, with us hitting

the 20,000-attendance target for our last

game here against Sheffield United, our

highest league attendance for five years.

of the season is fantastic and we hope to

better that target in the matches to come.

With the transfer window now closed, I

would like to welcome all our new players

to our family. Since my last set of notes,

we have welcomed Dimitrios Pelkas, Cyrus

Christie, Harvey Vale, Xavier Simons, Adama

Traoré, Salah-Eddine Oulad M'Hand and

Thimothée Lo-Tutala to the club. All these

players are exciting and will contribute

massively throughout the season.

With the international break coming

up after our trip to Swansea City on

Saturday, I would like to wish all our

players who have been picked by their

respected countries the best of luck.

After the international break, we have two

back-to-back home games against Luton

Town and Wigan Athletic, and I hope to see

as many of you there as we look to continue

our positive start to the 2022/23 campaign.

When I first came to the club, myself

and Tan wanted to get more of you, our

supporters, coming down to the stadium to

watch the team. To say we hit the target of

over 20,000 in only our fourth league game

ONE FAMILY.

ONE DREAM.


ON BEHALF OF THE TEAM AND

EVERYONE AT THE CLUB, I WOULD LIKE

TO PASS ON MY CONDOLENCES. HER

LEGACY WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.

ONE FAMILY.

HEAD WELCOME COACH

SH OTA ARVELADZE

HELLO TO ALL OUR SUPPORTERS AND WELCOME

BACK TO THE MKM STADIUM FOR THIS EVENING’S

CHAMPIONSHIP FIXTURE AGAINST STOKE CITY…

It was amazing to see so many of you here

for our last game against Sheffield United.

The crowd was our biggest in the league for

over five years – more than 20,000 – which

was just brilliant to see. The atmosphere

was great again, as it has been for all

of our matches, although unfortunately

we didn’t get the result we wanted.

Sheffield United are a very strong team and

really tough to play against, which is why they

are top of the league. We had two big chances

in the first half at 1-0 which could have

changed the game. Credit to their goalkeeper,

Wes Foderingham, who made an excellent

double save after Óscar Estupiñán had gone

through one-on-one. Ozan Tufan then put

a bit too much on his lob with the second

chance. There weren’t many chances for either

side in the second half but they scored at

the right time and that decided the game.

Our match against Cardiff City on Saturday

was postponed as a mark of respect following

the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. On behalf

of the team and everyone at the club, I

would like to pass on my condolences.

Her legacy will never be forgotten.

I would like to take this opportunity to

welcome Stoke manager Alex Neill, his staff,

players and their fans to tonight’s match. Alex

has had a few games to watch his new team

and will still be trying to get his ideas across

to his players after taking over last month.

All matches are tough and we want to show

our best side after two difficult results.

Again, we ask you to show your support

as you do for every home game, create a

great atmosphere, give the boys energy

and we will try our best as always.

Enjoy the game.

LOAN WATC H

HULL CITY CURRENTLY HAVE SEVEN PLAYERS OUT ON LOAN. HERE, WE

TAKE A LOOK AT HOW OUR TIGERS ARE GETTING ON IN LOAN WATCH…

We start with our most recent departures in

Jevon Mills and McCauley Snelgrove, with

the duo leaving on transfer deadline day to

join Gateshead and Crusaders respectively.

Defender Mills made his Gateshead debut

as a second-half substitute as the Heed

defeated Maidstone United 4-1 at the

Gateshead International Stadium, with ex-

Tiger Greg Olley netting the hosts’ third.

Meanwhile Snelgrove started his first game

for Crusaders, but couldn’t help them

progress in the TOALSBet.com Co. Antrim

Shield after losing 1-0 against Linfield. Fellow

Under-21s’ member Harry Fisk has made

five appearances for Tadcaster Albion since

rejoining the side on loan until January,

with his most recent appearance coming

in a 1-1 home draw against Hebburn.

Andy Smith

Harry Fisk

Fellow goalkeepers Harvey Cartwright and

David Robson have made one appearance

each for Peterborough United and Crawley

Town respectively. After an initial 2-2 draw,

Robson saved a spot-kick on his Red Devils’

debut as he denied Portsmouth’s Kieran

Freeman in a 8-7 penalty shootout victory

in Southern Group B in the EFL Trophy.

Cartwright also made his debut for the Posh

in the same competition, narrowly losing 2-1

against Stevenage in Southern Group D.

In EFL League Two, Andy Smith is currently

enjoying his time back at Grimsby Town,

making eight appearances in all competitions

for the Mariners this season. Helping keep

four clean sheets in total, the Banbury-born

defender also scored his first goal of the

season in a 4-0 home victory over Crewe

Alexandra in the first round of the EFL Cup.

Ending in the National League North, Will

Jarvis made his second debut for Scarborough

Athletic in a 2-2 home draw against Bradford

Park Avenue. Making four appearances in

total this season, the 19-year-old has helped

the Seadogs claim victories over AFC Fylde,

Blyth Spartans and Farsley Celtic, scoring

against the latter in a 4-2 win at The Citadel.

THE

BOSS

Alex Neil

Alex Neil began his managerial career

at Hamilton Academical in 2013,

after the departure of Billy Reid. He

guided the Accies to promotion to the

Scottish Premiership in 2014 via the

play-offs. In the following season, he

masterminded Hamilton’s first win at

Celtic in 76 years. Neil joined Norwich

City in January 2015 and led the Canaries

to promotion to the Premier League

via the Championship play-offs.

Unable to keep the Canaries in the Premier

League, Neil was sacked in March 2017

with Norwich occupying eighth place in

the Championship table. He subsequently

took over at Preston North End, where he

spent less than four years, and also had a

short spell with Sunderland. With the latter,

he gained promotion to the Championship

via the League One play-offs. Following

the sacking of Michael O’Neill, Stoke acted

quickly to appoint Neil as their new manager.

2022 SUMMER

TRANSFER WINDOW:

It has been a very busy transfer window

for the Potters, bringing in Josh Laurent,

Aden Flint and Dwight Gayle on permanent

deals alongside youngster Liam McCarron,

who is currently out on loan to Port Vale.

Fellow youngsters Dara McGuinness,

Kahrel Reddin, Sony Singh, Tommy Jackson,

Edwin Andersson, Ben Kershaw and Jacob

Holland-Wilkinson have been recruited

for their respected Under-21 side.

Seven players of their Under-21 squad and

10 second-year scholars also departed Stoke,

while Ethon Varian was sold to Bohemians.

Lewis Macari has extended his loan spell

at Bohemians while Will Goodwin, Eddy

Jones, Dan Malone, Douglas Taylor and

David Okagbue have headed out on loan.

Also joining Stoke were the loan additions of

Tarique Fosu, Will Smallbone, Gavin Kilkenny,

Liam Delap, Harry Clarke and Dujon Sterling

who have all come from Premier League sides.

For outgoings, first-team members Tommy

Smith, James Chester, Tom Ince, Joe

Allen, Steven Fletcher, Benik Afobe and

Alfie Doughty all departed, while Tom

Edwards, Mario Vrančić and Demeaco

Duhaney have gone out on loan.

MEET

OPPOSITION

THE

BETWEEN THE POSTS

After joining the Potters from AFC

Wimbledon in 2017, Joe Bursik has had

to bide his time to become the number

one goalkeeper. He has had loan spells in

non-league with Hednesford Town and AFC

Telford United and stints in League One

with clubs such as Accrington Stanley and

Doncaster Rovers. Internationally, he has

represented England at Under-17, Under-18,

Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level.

The current deputy to Bursik is Jack Bonham.

Bonham started his career at Watford, where

he made one senior appearance, and has also

had spells with Brentford and Gillingham. He

joined Stoke in July 2021 and has stepped

into the starting XI when needed to do so.

Both Bursik and Bonham have featured in

the Potters’ goal in the league this season.

The experienced Frank Fielding provides

more cover. Having previously represented the

likes of Derby County, Bristol City and Millwall,

Fielding has made 363 career appearances.

He initially joined the Potters on a short term

deal in December 2021 and signed a one-year

contract with the club for the 2022/23 season.

AT THE BACK

The Potters possess a mixture of youth and

experience in their defence. With the highly

rated Harry Souttar currently side-lined,

others have had to step up. Twenty-two-yearold

Ben Wilmot has been a solid addition

since joining from Watford in June 2021.

Stoke native Connor Taylor has forced his

way into the first team this season after a

very successful loan spell at Bristol Rovers in

the last campaign. The 20-year-old signed

a new three-year contract with the Potters

in July 2022. Meanwhile, Arsenal loanee

Harry Clarke has featured on occasion

this season and has netted one goal.

The vast majority of the experience in

Stoke’s defence comes from new arrival

Aden Flint and former Sheffield United

and Everton man Phil Jagielka. Flint

and Jagielka have a combined age of 73

and have made over 1,200 professional

appearances between them.

Former Tiger Josh Tymon and the

experienced Morgan Fox are other

defenders that have been utilised by

Stoke in the league this season.

ONE DREAM.


IN THE MIDDLE

Summer arrivals Gavin Kilkenny, Josh

Laurent and Will Smallbone have all

provided new competition and further depth

in Stoke’s midfield this season. All three

have been used in the league this season.

Lewis Baker and ex-Tiger Sam Clucas possess

a large amount of Championship experience

between them and have both been regular

features this season. Since joining from

Chelsea in January 2022, Baker has proven to

be a solid acquisition and was appointed as

the Potters’ new club captain for the 2022/23

season, signing a new three-year contract in

June 2022. Clucas spent over two years with

the Tigers between 2015 and 2017, making

96 appearances and scoring nine goals, and

will aim to haunt his former side tonight.

Elsewhere, Jordan Thompson, Nick Powell

and Tom Sparrow are further midfield options

for the Potters and all of them have featured

in the league this season. Thompson is a

Northern Irish international with 20 caps to

his name. Powell made five appearances

for the Tigers during a loan spell in the

2015/16 season. Meanwhile, 19-year-old

Sparrow has recently come through the

Stoke academy into the first team and has

also been capped once for Wales Under-21s.

professional debut in the EFL Cup last month.

UPFRONT

Dwight Gayle has great pedigree in the

Championship. He propelled Newcastle United

to the Championship title by scoring 23 goals

in 34 appearances in the 2016/17 season.

Two seasons later, he bagged 23 goals in a

very successful loan spell at West Bromwich

Albion. Gayle knows what it takes to score in

this league and provides a big goal threat.

Jacob Brown and Tyrese Campbell are other

goal threats. Brown, Stoke’s top scorer last

season with 14 goals, already has two league

goals this campaign. He is also a Scotland

international and has won four caps. Campbell

has one league goal so far this season.

Nineteen-year-old Liam Delap, son of

Stoke legend Rory, is another dangerous

option up front. On loan at the Potters from

Manchester City, this could be a season

where he makes his name in the league.

On the wing, Tariqe Fosu and D’Margio

Wright-Phillips both provide attacking flair

and lots of creativity. Wright-Phillips made

his Football League debut for Stoke against

the Tigers in January 2022 and has been

a main stay in the first team since then.

WE MEET AGAIN…

WE LOOK AT PREVIOUS ENCOUNTERS AGAINST THIS AFTERNOON’S OPPOSITION, STOKE CITY…

2019 - Bowen Brace Inspires

Tigers to Victory

Hull City came from behind to defeat Stoke

City 2-1 in December 2019, courtesy of a

Jarrod Bowen brace. The Tigers endured

a frustrating start to the game as Sam

Vokes met a James McClean cross and gave

Stoke the lead in the seventh minute.

Bowen got the Tigers back on level terms

in the 49th minute with a drilled effort

from outside the box. Seven minutes

later, Bowen made it a brace with a real

poacher’s finish which ultimately proved

to be the winning goal and secured all

three points for Grant McCann’s side.

2006 – 14-year

Winless Run Ended

Peter Taylor’s Hull City earned a

comfortable 3-0 victory over the Potters

in January 2006. The Tigers took the

lead in the first half when a well worked

set piece resulted in Darel Russell

putting the ball into his own net.

In the second half, Tigers’ goalkeeper

Boaz Myhill had an outstanding display

as he made two penalty saves to deny

both Paul Gallagher and Luke Chadwick

respectively. Strikes from Jon Parkin and

Darryl Duffy ensured that the Tigers picked

up their first win at Stoke since 1992.

Heritage Number: #842

Hull City Career: 52 appearances, 8 goals

Stoke City Career: 271 appearances, 62 goals

Hailing from the Wirral Peninsula, Jonathan

Walters began his football career with

Blackburn Rovers and was part of their

2001 FA Youth Cup runners-up squad.

Walters subsequently left Blackburn

and joined Bolton Wanderers where

he made six first team appearances. In

February 2003, he joined the Tigers on

loan. Making 11 appearances, Walters

registered five goals. After returning

to Bolton, he had unsuccessful loans

at Crewe Alexandra and Barnsley.

Walters returned to the Tigers in February

2004 on a permanent deal for a £50,000 fee.

Mainly used as a substitute, he scored three

goals in 41 appearances and also went out

on loan to Scunthorpe United. In August

2005, he left the club permanently and had

short spells with Wrexham and Chester City.

With the latter, he scored 10 goals in 33

appearances. This led to a move to Ipswich

Town in January 2007 for £100,000. In over

three years at Portman Road, Walters made

146 appearances and scored 32 goals.

In August 2010, he signed for Stoke City for

a fee of £2.75m and would spend seven years

with the Potters. Notable highlights of his

time at the club included scoring a brace in

a 5-0 win against Bolton Wanderers in an FA

Cup Semi-Final and playing in the FA Cup

Final against Manchester City in a 1-0 defeat.

During this time, Walters won the majority of

his caps for the Republic of Ireland. He scored

his first Ireland goal against Estonia in the

first leg of the Euro 2012 Qualifying Play-Offs.

Three years later, he scored both goals in a

2-0 win against Bosnia and Herzegovina which

secured Ireland’s place at Euro 2016. In total,

Walters won 54 caps and scored 14 goals.

Walters departed Stoke for Burnley in July

2017 for £3m. However, his time at Turf

Moor was disrupted by both injuries and a

lack of first team football. A loan move back

to Ipswich Town in 2018 was cut short due

to an Achilles injury. Consequently, Walters

announced his retirement from football in

March 2019. Overall, he made 573 career

appearances and scored 117 goals.

CHRIS GALVIN

A tricky winger throughout his career,

Chris Galvin was born in Huddersfield on

the 24th November 1951. A very talented

football player and cricket player in his

youth, the winger joined Leeds United on

apprentice terms in the late 1960s and

represented England Youth in 1970.

He made his Leeds’ debut in November

1969 in the Ulloi Uti Stadium in Budapest,

Hungary, replacing Eddie Gray in a European

Cup tie against Ferecvaros two days after his

18th birthday. Making 17 appearances for

the Whites in five years, Galvin left Leeds to

join Hull City in the close season of 1973.

Hull City Career: 171 appearances, 14 goals

Hull City First Game: 11th August 1973

vs Mansfield Town [A] (Watney Cup

First Round), 21 years, 260 days old

Hull City Final Game: 16th April

1979 vs Blackpool [H] (Division

Three), 27 years, 143 days old

Netting on his Tigers’ debut, a 3-0 victory

over Mansfield Town in the first round

of the Watney Cup, the now 70-year-old

was eased into the first team by manager

Terry Neill before being dropped again in

January 1974. He made 25 appearances

in all competitions in his debut campaign

at Hull City, scoring three times.

Galvin was a regular in the Hull City side for

Terry Neill over the next two seasons, making

37 and 44 appearances respectively, before

the appointment of John Kaye saw a slow

and sad decline of influence on Galvin.

Sending him out on loan at York City in the

1976/77 season, where he scored six goals

in 22 league appearances, Galvin came back

to Hull City but could not prevent them

being relegated to the Third Division.

Becoming mainly a support player in his

last season with the Tigers, the winger left

the club in April 1979 to join Stockport

County. Making 68 league appearances

for County, netting three goals, Galvin

made the move to Hong Kong to become

player manager at Tsuen Wan in 1981.

Netting five goals in 36 appearances for

the club over two years, Galvin became

a player’s agent and ran a sports shop in

his birthplace of Huddersfield. His brother

Tony, also a winger, won two FA Cups at

Tottenham Hotspur in the early 1980s

and played several times for Ireland.

JUSTIN

WHITTLE

For most Hull City fans, the 27th of

November 1998 proved to be an important

day in the club’s history. Joining from

Stoke City for a £65,000 fee on this

day, Justin Whittle was the first of

many signings that helped the Tigers

produce the Great Escape and avoid

relegation from the Football League.

Beginning his career in the army, Whittle

was scouted by Celtic whilst playing

football in Germany. Joining the Scottish

giants alongside Garry Holt, the now

51-year-old spoke on his short time with

Celtic before his move to Stoke City.

“I was in an army game against the German

army and there was a scout there who

was the guest of honour, but he was also

scouting for Celtic,” said Whittle. “At the

time, the manager was Lou Macari and

the scout recommended myself and Gary

Holt to go for a trial at Celtic, which we

did and we flew over after the tournament

and Macari liked what he saw and we

both got offered a youth contract.

“We only stayed there for two months,

because Macari was sacked and then

he took over at Stoke City. When

Thomas Burns took over, he gave us a

choice to either play out our contract at

Celtic or go to Stoke with Macari.”

Choosing the latter, the defender

made his professional debut against

Southend United as the Potters narrowly

missed out on promotion in his first

season, losing via the play-offs 1-0 on

aggregate against Leicester City.

“We fought so well that season just to make

the play-offs and then we had Leicester at

Silver Street and we drew 0-0 there. My

centre-half partner was Lárus Sigurðsson

who was an Icelandic international and I

thought we did well at Silver Street. We

maybe should have nicked that one 1-0.

“I was lucky, because I think there was a

central sport special and Jimmy Greaves

gave me Man of the Match and I won a

little trophy which I still have in my house

on the mantel piece. We went back to the

Victoria Ground and we played alright

and after they scored, we just couldn’t

get back into the game to draw and

they then went on to get promoted.”

Being named Stoke’s Player of the Year for

the 1997/98 season, Whittle couldn’t help

the Potters survive relegation to the Second

Division at the end of that campaign. Playing

15 games in his final season at Stoke, Brian

Little sold the defender to Hull City.

The Tigers were rooted to the bottom

of the League Division Three table when

the defender signed. Whittle’s debut saw

goal. Despite suffering four straight

losses in the next four games, Warren

Joyce’s men did the unthinkable as they

completed what was named ‘The Great

Escape’, finishing 21st in the table.

“I was in and out of the team at Stoke and

Brian Little let Hull City speak to me. It was

a big decision at the time because of where

Hull were in the league to where Stoke

were and I was moving to a new part of the

country I knew nothing about, but I don’t

regret it one bit and I am still here now!

“After that first game (against Carlisle), it took

us a few games to get our next win. It wasn’t

an immediate impact and we had to sign one

or two more players to help us a long that

journey,” explained Whittle. “But we knew the

momentum was going our way and eventually

we got the right players in and the right

togetherness to get us where we wanted to

be that season; it was all about staying in that

division and it was a fantastic achievement.”

Featuring as captain many times for the

club over the years, Whittle became an

instant fans’ favourite with the Hull City

faithful. Following the Great Escape

season, the defender produced four

consecutive seasons of playing 40+

games for the club in league and cup.

During his penultimate season with the Tigers,

the 51-year-old saw the club move from

Boothferry Park to what is now known as the

MKM Stadium in 2002. However, this was the

not his first experience at a club where they

moved stadiums during his playing career.

“I had the same thing at Stoke where I

played at their old ground Victoria Ground

to what they play in now, so I already had

experience of moving from an old ground to

a new ground and it was very much similar

to that, moving from Boothferry Park to

the MKM Stadium,” revealed Whittle.

“It is always sad to leave the old ground,

because the atmosphere at old grounds

were a lot different to the new grounds,

because the fans were either on top of

you or closer to you so it was a lot more

intimidating for the away teams, so it gave

you that edge whereas now in the new

grounds, fans are a little bit further away.”

Starting his final season in fine form once

again, Whittle sadly injured his back and

predominantly missed out the second

half of the season as Peter Taylor’s side

won promotion from the Third Division.

“I played mostly the first half of that season

and I missed the last part of the season as

I injured my back so I wasn’t able to get

back to finish it off. It would have been

nice, but it was great to be involved in that

campaign. The players we had that season

were good players and Peter Taylor brought

in that togetherness. It didn’t happen

straight away to try and get there, but when

it did we went on and it was a fantastic

achievement for the city to get promotion.”

Following promotion, the defender moved

to Grimsby Town. Spending four seasons

with the Mariners, Whittle later went into

non-league with Harrogate Town and

North Ferriby United, becoming caretaker

manager with the latter in 2011.

Currently working as a postman, the

51-year-old can also be seen around the

Circle Restaurant and Kingston Suite at

the MKM Stadium on a matchday as a

guest speaker with the commercial team.

“It is always great to be appreciated by

the fans for something that I loved doing.

The fans gave me so much of my career

and it is nice to give back in some way.”

AFTER SCORING OUR WINNING

GOAL ON THE OPENING DAY

OF THE SEASON AGAINST

BRISTOL CITY, IT HAS BEEN A

FRUSTRATING FEW WEEKS FOR

MIDFIELDER JEAN MICHAËL

SERI. HOWEVER, HAVING

RETURNED FROM INJURY JUST

OVER A WEEK AGO AGAINST

SHEFFIELD UNITED, THE

EXPERIENCED PLAYMAKER

IS DETERMINED TO HELP THE

TEAM BUILD ON OUR PROMISING

START TO THE SEASON.

The 31-year-old joined the Tigers

on a three-year contract at the

beginning of July, fresh off the

back of winning promotion to the

Premier League with Fulham.

Shota Arveladze named him in the

starting line-up for our opening game of

the season against Bristol City, and the

midfielder wasted no time in showing

why there was so much excitement

about his arrival at the MKM Stadium.

After Ozan Tufan’s equaliser from the penalty

spot against the Robins, Seri’s deflected strike

in stoppage time nestled into the back of the

net to give us a valuable three points and

spark jubilant scenes in the home crowd.

“Our first game back was a good game for

all of us to start the season, including our

supporters,” said Seri. “We couldn’t ask for

anything more than that. We believed that we

could win the game, and that’s what we did.”

Over 16,500 supporters were in attendance

to witness the Tigers begin our first full

season under the ownership of Acun Ilıcalı,

and Seri believes the fans are going to play

a huge role if the team are going to enjoy

a successful season in the Championship.

“Our supporters are very good,” said

Seri. “They push us on a lot. It means a

lot (to us) because when your supporters

push you on like that, they want you to do

well. We need them for the remainder of

the season (if we’re to be successful).”

It has been two months since the

experienced midfielder arrived in East

Yorkshire. However, Seri is already loving

life in Hull, and has found it easy to adjust,

largely helped by the close-knit squad

which has been built over the summer.

“It’s gone well,” replied Seri, when asked

how he has found his first two months in Hull.

“I’ve now moved into my apartment, and

everything is set-up. I’m very happy (to be

here). I’m close to every player (in the squad).

In a squad, you always have someone you do

things with, but I’m close to every player.”

With a two-week international break just

around the corner, tonight’s game against

Stoke City is a good opportunity for the

Tigers to pick up a positive result as they

look to head into the break on a high.

Seri is delighted to be back available

for selection and is full of excitement

for the remainder of the campaign.

“I’m happy to be back so I can help the

team be successful. I believe we can do

(good) things (this season) and that we

can build on our good start to the season.

I’m happy to be back with the team.”

UNDER-21'S UPDATE

THE UNDER-21S SUFFERED A

NARROW 2-1 DEFEAT AGAINST

READING IN THE PROFESSIONAL

DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE.

Conor Sellars made three changes to his starting

XI to the one that faced Ipswich Town last time

out. An unnamed trialist started ahead of Josh

Hinds, while Harry Wallis and Matty Jacob replaced

McCauley Snelgrove and Jake Leake respectively.

The Tigers opened the scoring on seven minutes

as Jim Simms connected with Jacob’s precise

cross to place his first-time strike into the bottom

corner. Reading’s Claudio Osorio equalised 12

minutes later with a clinical one-on-one finish

before both goalkeepers were called into action.

Coniah Boyce-Clark denied the trialist and

Harry Wood while Tom Macauley acrobatically

saved against Kelvin Ehibhatiomhan.

Nelson Abbey thought he put the visitors in front

early in the second half as his thunderous strike

came back off the underside of the bar before Osorio

scored what would be the eventual winner five

minutes later, heading home John Clarke’s cross.

Macauley then denied

Ehibhatiomhan at his near post

before both Hinds and Louie

Chorlton came close to finding

a stoppage-time equaliser. The

duo combined as Hinds’

attempt was saved by

Boyce-Clark before

Chorlton saw a later

shot deflect wide.

SINCERE

HALL

PLAYING EVERY GAME FOR THE UNDER-21S THIS SEASON, SINCERE

HALL IS LOOKING TO HELP THE TEAM EARN MORE POINTS.

The 18-year-old has been in fine scoring

form since the start of the season, scoring

in fixtures against Bristol City, Watford and

Ipswich Town respectively. Predominantly

starting on the left wing for the Tigers,

the Bermuda Under-20 international

wants to help the side push up the

Professional Development League table.

“I am happy with my personal performances,”

said Hall. “It is great to start every game

so far and I am just going with the flow.

I just want to score more goals.

“It is always good to score and affect

the game, but I think we just need to get

a few more wins under our belts. That

is the main goal to just keep winning

games and going up the table.”

The Under-21s have seen a handful of

new recruits into the side and a new Lead

Professional Development Coach in Conor

Sellars. Speaking on his relationship with

the new manager and new strike partner

Jim Simms, Hall said: “The new coach,

I am liking him. I like the way how he

wants us to play football and I feel like

we get along which is always good.

“I like the way Jim plays as he plays with

one touch. His touch is really good so his

combinations with me are really good and

off the pitch he is a good guy as well.”

Hall has also had the opportunity to be

with the first team at Cottingham, being

an unused substitute in both of the Tigers’

pre-season double header fixtures against

Cambridge United and Peterborough United.

Despite not coming onto the pitch, the

18-year-old enjoyed the experience

as he targets more involvement with

Shota Arveladze’s side throughout

the course of the season.

“I loved the experience with the first team,

because that is where I want to be in the

next couple of years,” explained Hall. “It

was good to see and learn from all the first

team players by watching the matches.

“I want to get in and around the first

team a bit more and I just want to keep

scoring and assisting to affect games.”

John Anderson and Billy Clarke made three changes

to the starting XI that were narrowly defeated

The hosts took a 2-0 lead into the half-time break

Doncaster all three points in the first group game.

The Tigers will be looking to make amends in the

prestigious competition in the other two group stage

IN THEIR OWN WORDS

#34 HARVEY

VALE

JUST OVER A WEEK AGO, HARVEY VALE JOINED THE TIGERS ON A SEASON-LONG LOAN FROM

PREMIER LEAGUE OUTFIT CHELSEA, ALONGSIDE FELLOW YOUNGSTER XAVIER SIMONS.

As a highly-rated 18-year-old midfielder,

Vale had plenty of options for his first

loan move away from Stamford Bridge,

but felt moving to the MKM Stadium was

the best choice for his development.

“I felt Hull City was the best fit for me,” said

Vale. “I really like the direction in which the

club is heading in. There’s a real feel-good

factor around the place at the moment.

There’s competition (for places), but I’m

18-years-old on my first loan (move away)

so there’s (always) going to be competition.

I’m willing to fight for my spot and hopefully,

I can earn the trust of everyone.”

The Tigers have already played nine

games in all competitions this season,

and Vale says the relentless nature of the

Championship is something he is excited

to experience, as it means opportunities to

play are always just around the corner.

“It’s a relentless league, but I love that,” said

Vale. “Opportunities for me to prove myself

will come when there are loads of games.

Gameday is the day of the week everyone

looks forward to the most, so to have two

of them most weeks is great. It’s a big step

for me but I think it’s the right one.”

One of the highlights of the youngster’s

career came just a few months ago on

the international stage. Vale captained

England to success in the UEFA Under-19

European Championships in July.

“It was one of the proudest moments of my

life,” explained Vale. “I was so proud just to

play for England, and to captain them at a

major tournament and to win it, meant the

world to me. I had 13 or 14 family members

out there (in Slovakia) so it was a really

special moment. It’s one I’ll never forget.”

Vale will now be looking to build on his

performances over the summer by enjoying a

successful season in East Yorkshire, starting

with getting himself in contention to feature

in tonight’s game against Stoke City.
