HEAD NOTES COACH
GOOD AFTERNOON AND WELCOME TO TODAY’S CHAMPIONSHIP
MATCH AGAINST QUEENS PARK RANGERS AT THE MKM STADIUM.
I was pleased with the lads’ resilience,
determination and effort against a
Huddersfield team that sat back for long
periods in our last home game. We weren’t
happy with the way we started, or the
goal we conceded from a set-play, but
we kept going. Our perseverance was
rewarded with a last-minute equaliser – a
superb finish from Óscar Estupiñán – that
extended our unbeaten run to six.
We are becoming harder to beat and took
a very good team in Sheffield United, who
are miles clear in the race for automatic
promotion, all the way at Bramall Lane.
With a little more confidence and belief, we
could have got something from the game.
Overall, over the last 10 matches, there
has been a clear progression. Having been
one point above the relegation zone, we
are now eight points clear and building a
strong identity as a team. We’re making
good strides but now it’s about kicking on.
We are delighted to have Malcolm Ebiowei
with us for the rest of the season, and I
must thank Acun and Tan for backing me.
Malcolm is someone I’ve worked with
before, has lots of potential and will excite
the fans with his skill, flair and pace.
I would like to extend a warm welcome to QPR
head coach Neil Critchley, his staff, players
and their fans to today’s game. Neil is a very
good coach at this level and they’ve got
some real attacking threats with Tyler Roberts,
Lyndon Dykes, Ilias Chair and new loan
signing Jamal Lowe. We’ll have to make sure
defensively we’re strong, as we have been
since I came in, to get the win we are craving.
The players’ understanding and work
ethic has been outstanding and they are
giving everything in training every day.
We are in a good place to move forward
and we need you to be with us all the
way, encouraging the lads and helping
drive this team to where we want to go.
We are all in this together.

winning tech business with great
benefits (including Hull City tickets)!

Neil Critchley started his coaching journey
at Crewe Alexandra where he became an
academy coach in 2007. In September 2013,
Critchley joined the coaching staff within
the Liverpool academy. He took charge
of the Under-18, Under-19 and Under-23
sides over a period of seven years and also
acted as stand in manager of the Liverpool
first-team on a couple of occasions.
Critchley made his first step into club management
when he was appointed Head Coach of Blackpool
in March 2020. He led the Tangerines to promotion
to the Championship via the League One Play-
Offs in the 2020/21 campaign and subsequently
secured a 16th placed finish the following season.
Critchley departed Blackpool in June 2022 to
become assistant head coach at Aston Villa, but
lasted just over four months in the role. He was
appointed Head Coach of QPR in December 2022.
In this current transfer window, QPR have
made one signing with the loan acquisition
of Jamal Lowe. Lowe was brought in from
Premier League side AFC Bournemouth.
Macauley Bonne, Faysal Battache and Sean
Adarkwa have left the club permanently
whilst Olamide Shodipo has been sent out
on loan. Meanwhile, Charlie Owens, Joe
Walsh and Ody Alfa have returned after their
respective loan spells came to an end.
Last summer, the Hoops signed Jake
Clarke-Salter, Leon Balogun and Kenneth
Paal on permanent deals and later added
Elijah Dixon-Bonner in October.
These were joined by the loan
acquisitions of Tyler Roberts, Ethan
Laird, Tim Iroegbunam and Taylor
Richards from Premier League clubs.
Jordy de Wijs, Yoann Barbet, Charlie Austin,
Moses Odubajo, Dominic Ball, David
Marshall, Lee Wallace, Keiren Westwood and

WE MEET AGAIN…
WE LOOK AT THE PREVIOUS ENCOUNTERS AGAINST TODAY'S OPPOSITION, QUEENS PARK RANGERS…
2019- Irvine Strike
Seals Late Victory
The Tigers won their final game of
2019 as they defeated Queens Park
Rangers 2-1 at Loftus Road.
QPR took the lead in the 20th minute through
an effort from Ilias Chair which was fired into
the back of the net. Twelve minutes later, the
Tigers were level when George Honeyman
pounced on a loose ball and slotted home
after Josh Bowler’s cross wasn’t dealt with
effectively by Hoops’ keeper Joe Lumley.
Grant McCann’s side would take all
three points thanks to an 89th minute
header from Jackson Irvine as he met
a Jarrod Bowen free-kick delivery.
2014- Tigers Make
City began the 2014/15 Premier
League season in winning style as they
defeated QPR 1-0 in August 2014.
James Chester put Steve Bruce’s team
in front in the 52nd minute with a welltaken
header, getting on the end of
a corner taken by Stephen Quinn.
Following this, QPR piled on the pressure
as they searched for an equaliser and
forced Tigers keeper Allan McGregor
into producing a number of great saves.
McGregor was also on hand to save Charlie
Austin’s penalty which ensured that the
three points returned to East Yorkshire.
1950- Ackerman Hat-Trick
Helps Earn Victory
Raich Carter and Syd Gerrie got
themselves on the scoresheet while
Alf Ackerman bagged a hat-trick.
Ackerman got on the scoresheet in the return
fixture between the sides at Loftus Road in
April 1951 and was the club’s top scorer for
the 1950/51 season with 21 goals to his name.
1970- Chilton Goal
On Saturday 21st November 1970,
Hull City and Queens Park Rangers
played out a 1-1 draw at Boothferry
Park in front of 15,606 spectators.
After being a goal down at half-time, Terry
Neill’s men got themselves back on level
terms in the 53rd minute when Chris Chilton
smashed the ball home after running in
through on goal. The sides later met each
other again in February 1971, which resulted
in another 1-1 draw as Ken Wagstaff grabbed
a 90th minute equaliser for the Tigers.

Hailing from Ushaw Moor in County
Durham, Mick O’Brien started playing
football at the age of 18 when he
signed for Walker Celtic. He then
played for Wallsend, Blyth Spartans
and Newcastle East End before heading
to Scotland to join Celtic in 1912.
However, O’Brien struggled to gain regular
game time and rejoined Blyth Spartans in
1913. A move to Brentford soon materialised
and he played for the Bees before the
outbreak of the First World War led to the
suspension of the Football League. During
the conflict, O’Brien spent time serving within
both the Royal Navy and Royal Flying Corps.
After the war, he resumed his football
career and had spells with Alloa Athletic,
Norwich City and South Shields. In 1920,
O’Brien signed for Queens Park Rangers
where he established himself as a tough and
commanding centre half. Whilst at QPR, he
received his first cap for Ireland and would
go on to earn 10 caps in total. O’Brien had a
two-year spell with Leicester City from 1922-
24 and joined the Tigers for a £750 fee.
O’Brien was a first-team regular during his
time with the Tigers and scored his only
goal for the club in January 1925. In May
1926, he made the switch to American
Soccer League side Brooklyn Wanderers.
He subsequently returned to England and
ended his playing career with stints at Derby
County, Walsall, a second spell with Norwich
City and a final outing at Watford. He also
won four caps for the Irish Free State.
After retiring, O’Brien pursued a managerial
career and his first job came with former club
QPR where he was appointed in 1933. He had
two years in charge of the Hoops and later
had a spell as assistant manager at Brentford
as well as a stint as manager of Ipswich Town.
After being dismissed by Ipswich, O’Brien was
a coach for the Middlesex FA. In September
1940, he sadly passed away at the age of 47.

THE COLOURS OF THIS AFTERNOON’S OPPONENTS QUEENS
PARK RANGERS WILL BE A FAMILIAR SIGHT TO MATT INGRAM.
The 29-year-old featured 19 times for
the West London club before making
the permanent switch to the Tigers
in June 2019. Spending three-and-ahalf
years with the Hoops, despite not
featuring as much as he would have
liked, the High Wycombe-born shotstopper
enjoyed his time with the club.
“I had a good three-and-a-half years at QPR.
I really enjoyed it and learned a lot,” said
Ingram. “I am really looking forward to the
game and hopefully we can earn the three
points. It will be a really tough test as they
have acquitted themselves very well, but
we’re going into the game really wanting to
win as we need to sort out our home form.”
The Tigers suffered a narrow 1-0 away
defeat against Sheffield United last time
out. Despite leaving Bramall Lane with
no points, the 29-year-old said there
were positives to take from the fixture.
“We were disappointed to start slow
and concede early on, but I thought
our reaction to going behind was really
good,” explained Ingram. “We then played
our way into the game and imposed
our game on them and I think for the
neutrals it was a good game to watch.
“I thought we did well against a team near the
top of the table and gave a good impression
of ourselves. It was just a shame that we
lost the game and it would have been nice
to at least get a point or earn all three.”
Ingram has played every minute for Hull
City in 2023 and has started the last eight
games consecutively for Liam Rosenior’s
men. With Nathan Baxter currently injured,
summer signing Thimothée Lo-Tutala has been
the recent understudy to Ingram, being an
unused substitute in the last seven fixtures.
Town, the 29-year-old is enjoying the healthy
competition for the number one shirt.
“We all get on really, really well as a
goalkeeper group. However, at the same time
there is that competition that keeps pushing
me and I keep pushing them. There is really
healthy competition in the goalkeeping
department and I think we are all enjoying the
challenge and relishing working together.
“I think I have been fairly steady with my
performances and I think for a goalkeeper
that is what you can hope to be,” added
Ingram. “I think you can see as a team, we are
adapting very well to the new style of play.
“It is still a working progress, but I think
we are getting better and there is a
understanding amongst the squad of how
to play both in and out of possession.
It is nice that the style of play is coming
together, but it would be nice to get
some more points on the board.”

ONE HERITAGE NUMBER AS WE FOCUS ON THEIR PLAYING CAREER…
Hull City First Game: 5th October
1935 v Plymouth Argyle [H] (Division
Two), 24 years, 41 days old
Born in Longiggend, a mining village
near Airdrie to the east of Glasgow,
Scotland, on the 25th August 1911,
John McPheat began his footballing
career in the Scottish junior scene
with Shieldhill Thistle in 1932.
Hull City Career: 9 appearances
Hull City Final Game: 22nd February
1936 v Doncaster Rovers [A] (Division
Two), 24 years, 181 days old
Moving to Rutherglen Glencairn a year
later, McPheat scored the opening
goal as the Glens won the Glasgow
Cup in May 1935 with a 2-1 victory. His
performance in the final attracted the
interest of many senior sides, including
Hull City who won the race to get his
signature in mid-September 1935.
After quickly impressing in the reserves,
the inside-right made his senior debut
three weeks after joining in a 2-1 home
win over Plymouth Argyle. Sadly, John
Hill’s side suffered a poor run of form in
the next few games, with a 2-1 home win
over Nottingham Forest being the only
other Hull City win McPheat featured in.
After dropping out of the first team at the
end of November, McPheat made two more
appearances against Burnley and Doncaster
Rovers in the first months of 1936,
but was not used when David Menzies
returned as manager in late-February.
McPheat was given a free transfer by City
in May of the same year, joining Surreybased
Southern League outfit Guildford
City. Making his debut in August away at
Yeovil & Petters, the inside-right quickly
established himself as a fans’ favourite.
A member of the Southern Premier
League title winning side of 1937/38
and runners-up the following campaign,
McPheat also played alongside
fellow ex-Tiger Stanley Denby for the
majority of his 13 years at the club.
Playing the occasional wartime fixture for
Aldershot during World War Two, McPheat
scored 60 goals in 145 appearances
for Guildford and was awarded a
benefit match after his retirement in
1949. Returning to the Airdire area,
McPheat sadly passed away in 1974.

IN THE EARLY 1900S, PLAYERS SOMETIMES WOULD HAVE DEDICATED TRANSFER
MATCHES BETWEEN BOTH CLUBS AS PART OF THE AGREEMENT. AT HULL CITY, THE
CLUB HAS SEEN SIX PLAYERS HAVE THESE DEDICATED TRANSFER MATCHES…
Match #1 - Jack Manning
Heritage Number: #28
Hull City Career: 62 appearances, 9 goals
Fixture Date: Thursday 26th March 1908
v Bradford Park Avenue (H) L 1-2
Joining Hull City from hometown
club Boston Town in April 1905,
John Tom “Jack” Manning was
a consistent feature in Ambrose
Langley’s side up until March 1907.
An outside right who was known for
having a turn of pace and possessing a
powerful strike, Manning netted his final
City goal on the penultimate game of the
1906/07 season, a 1-1 home draw against
Burnley, before joining the newly formed
Bradford Park Avenue in August 1907.
Seven months after Manning made the
switch, the Tigers welcomed Bradford Park
Avenue to Anlaby Road for the transfer
match. Three thousand fans attended
the fixture as the visitors reigned 2-1
victors, despite Sloman scoring for City
on his only appearance for the club.
Manning would spend three years at the
Avenue before representing Lincoln City,
Rotherham County and Queens Park Rangers
before finishing his playing career back
at his hometown club of Boston Town.
Hull City XI (v Bradford Park Avenue): Spendiff,
Hedley, Stephenson, Browell, Hall, Gordon,
Smith, Morrison, Sloman, Temple, Wright.
Match #2 - Tommy Browell
Heritage Number: #61
Hull City Career: 52 appearances, 32 goals
Fixture Date: Thursday 10th October
1912 v Everton (H) L 4-7
Often known as “Boy” Browell, Thomas
“Tommy” Browell was the third Browell
brother from Walbottle, near Newcastle
Upon Tyne, to join Hull City in August
1910, following both George and Andy.
Having previous spells at Newburn and
Shildon Athletic, Tommy was given his
debut alongside his brothers against Bolton
Wanderers in September 1910. Coincidently,
the next game, a 1-0 away win against
Fulham, was the only time that all three
Browell brothers started for Hull City together.
Netting a hat-trick on his first start as a
pivot, Browell's regular goalscoring attracted
the interest of First Division outfit Everton,
who acquired his services for £1,650. A
few weeks later, the Toffees also signed
Tigers’ duo Andy Browell and Joe Smith.
A season later, the transfer match took
place as 10,000 fans saw a 11-goal thriller
at Anlaby Road in favour of the Toffees
7-4. Stanley Fazackerley netted a hat-trick
for City alongside Bert Goode’s finish.
Browell netted 36 times in 60 starts
for Everton before having a 13-
year spell at Manchester City,
scoring 139 goals in 247 starts.
Hull City XI (v Everton): Hendry, Houghton,
Potts, Fenwick, McIntosh, Gordon, Best,
Goode, O’Connell (Briggs), Fazackerley, Shaw.
The defender became the first Irishman to
be named captain at Manchester United
and five months after joining, the Red
Devils travelled to Anlaby Road to face
the Tigers in O’Connell’s transfer match.
Three-thousand fans attended the fixture
as City won 3-2 courtesy of goals from
Maw, Sammy Stevens and Billy Halligan.
O’Connell’s career post-City was an
interesting one. After spells at Dumbarton
and Ashington, the defender moved to
Spain after retirement to begin coaching in
1922, managing Racing de Santander, Real
Oviedo, Betis Balompie and FC Barcelona,
saving the latter of that list from demise
after civil war broke out in the country.
Hull City XI (v Manchester United): Mercer,
Pattison, Betts, Edelston, Deacey, Wright,
Lee, Maw, Stevens, Halligan, Morgan.

Fixture Date: Monday 12th October
1914 v Manchester United (H) W 3-2
Joining Hull City from Sheffield
Wednesday in May 1912 to revitalise his
career, Patrick “Paddy” O’Connell was
an ever-present under City managers
Ambrose Langley and Harry Chapman.
His form at centre-half in the 1913/14
season saw him represent Ireland in all three
of their games in the 1914 British Home
Championship. After two years of sterling
service for City, O’Connell made the switch to
Manchester United in May 1914 for £1,000.
Match #4 - Bert Mills
Heritage Number: #125
Hull City Career: 291 appearances, 110 goals

1922 v Barton Town (A) W 2-1
Born in the Punjabi city of Multan (then
in India, now in Pakistan) to an English
soldier father from Liverpool, Bertie
“Paddy” Mills was raised in Barton upon
Humber and started his footballing
career at Barton Town in 1918.
Signing for City two-years later, Mills’ transfer
match saw the Tigers travel to Marsh Lane
to face Barton Town in 1922. Thomas Eccles
netted the first for Harold Lewis’ Hull City
side before Mills scored the winner.
OFFICIAL TRADING PARTNER
OF HULL CITY
Spending six seasons in black and amber,
ending three of them being top scorer,
Mills had spells at Notts County and
Birmingham City before rejoining the
Tigers in 1929. Scoring goals that would
take the club to its first FA Cup semi-final,
Mills ended his City career with the third
highest senior goals total in club history.
Hull City XI (v Barton Town): Briggs,
Lodge, Blenkinsop, Collier, Garratt, Davies,
McKinney, Proctor, Eccles, Mills, Stansfield.
Mercer stayed at Huddersfield till the

Johnson, McGee, Collier, O’Brien, Bleakley,
Richardson, Martin, Goulden, Haworth, Thorn.
Match #5 - Billy Mercer
Heritage Number: #98
Hull City Career: 203 appearances

v Huddersfield Town (H) L 0-3
Our first regular post-World War One
goalkeeper, William Henry “Billy” Mercer
first joined Hull City in August 1914 after
starting at hometown club Prescot Athletic.
After making his debut in January 1915,
Mercer featured a handful of times before
serving the Royal Engineers in World War
One. Suffering severe mustard gas poisoning
in 1917, “Billy” was demobilised from
the army in December 1919 and featured
regularly for City from March 1920 onwards.
A consistent servant, Mercer left to join
Huddersfield Town in November 1924,
where he would win two First Division
titles and reach an FA Cup final. Five
months after his departure, the transfer
match was played as 4,000 fans saw the
Terriers reign 3-0 victors at Anlaby Road.
Match #6 - Stanley Denby
Heritage Number: #257
Hull City Career: 130 appearances, 3 goals
Fixture Date: Thursday 5th May
1932 v Goole Town (A) W 2-1
Left half Stanley Denby joined Hull City in
April 1932 after representing hometown
club Goole Town for five years.
Making his debut in a 4-0 home win
against Southport, Denby featured 24
times competitively for Haydn Green’s
side before the transfer match at the
Victoria Pleasure Grounds in May 1932.
The Tigers would reign 2-1 victors in the
fixture, with finishes coming from Fred
Speed and Tom Shelton in front of 750
fans. Denby featured in the penultimate
game of the 1932/33 season against
Rochdale a day later as the Tigers
won the Division Three North title.
Denby stayed a further four seasons
with the club before departing to
join Guildford City in 1937.

City on a one-month loan deal in November
1981 from Leeds United. The centre-back’s
only City appearance came as a substitute,
coming on for the last 11 minutes of a 2-0
away victory over Bury, courtesy of goals
from Steve McClaren and Garreth Roberts.
Originally a striker in his youth career,
Parkinson joined Doncaster Rovers in January

20 YEARS LOYAL
In 1967, club record appearance holder
Andy Davidson was awarded a special
trophy to dedicate 20-years’ service
to Hull City. Andrew “Jock” Davidson
first joined the Tigers in 1946 and by
September 1949, the defender fully
adjusted to Hull life sufficiently to sign
his first professional contract.
After breaking his right leg and completing
his national service, Davidson made his
City debut in September 1952 before
netting his first Hull goal in his third
appearance. Breaking his leg at the end
of January 1953 and doing it again in
a recovery game in November of the
same year, it took two years for the
Scottish-born defender to fully recover.
When Bob Brocklebank became manager of
Hull City, the then-23-year-old proceeded to
miss only six of the next 139 senior fixtures
between August 1955 and August 1958. After
City’s promotion back to the second tier in
1959, Davidson became club captain and
again was an ever-present, including raising
the Division Three trophy in May 1966.
Hanging up his boots in the 1968 close
season, Davidson registered 579 appearances
for the Tigers, scoring 19 goals. Earning a
testimonial against Manchester City on the
1st of April 1969, which saw Ken Wagstaff net
a brace in a 2-0 win, “Jock” remained loyal
to Hull City by joining the coaching staff.
In 1974, Davidson became assistant
manager at Boothferry Park. It was a role
he retained under managers John Kaye and
Ken Houghton before becoming a scout.
When Houghton was sacked in December
1979, all his staff left, including Davidson.
Going into the fishmongering trade and
running a successful business for many
years, Davidson retired to South Cave
before moving to Beverley nursing home,
where he sadly died in April 2014.

Running from the 16th - 20th of January,
the EFL Week Of Action provided
an opportunity for the 72 Clubs and
Community Club Organisations to
highlight the positive work carried
out in local communities.
This EFL Week Of Action has seen
the Tigers Trust shine a light on the
work that the organisation carries
out across Hull and East Yorkshire to
children, young people and adults.
In conjunction with the EFL Trust and the
University of South Wales, the Tigers Trust
provides the opportunity to undertake
a degree in either FD/BSc Sports
Coaching and Development, Community

South Wales degree courses being given
the chance to visit the Hull City Training
Ground to gain valuable experience
to contribute to their learning.
HULL FOODBANK VISIT
The positive work around the Together
Project campaign continued on Tuesday

PLAYER IN FOCUS
HERITAGE NUMBER: #1095
Hull City Career: 79 appearances, 4 goals
REGAN SLATER IS DETERMINED TO “ADD A FEW MORE GOALS” TO
HIS GAME AS HE CONTINUES TO ADAPT TO PLAYING IN A MORE
ADVANCED ROLE UNDER THE MANAGEMENT OF LIAM ROSENIOR.
The 23-year-old reached the milestone of
50 league starts for Hull City during last
weekend’s defeat against Sheffield United,
a game which holds extra significance
to the midfielder having progressed
through the youth ranks at Bramall Lane.
“We were disappointed to lose the game,”
said Slater reflecting on the 1-0 defeat in
South Yorkshire. “I think the boys that came
on after the break made a big impact in
the game. We were pushing a team that is
up there at the top of the league. We were
pushing them back. I thought we were a
lot better after the break. We can’t keep
conceding early on in games – it is a killer.”
It was United’s fourth consecutive win at
Bramall Lane as they maintained the pressure
on Championship leaders Burnley, but Paul
Heckingbottom’s side had to work hard to
secure the three points. Just shy of 30,000
supporters were in attendance, with many
left impressed with how the Tigers performed
against the promotion-chasing Blades.
“That is nice to hear. However at the end
of the day, it comes down to points and
we didn’t get any out of the game. It is
disappointing from our point of view. It
was nice to play there (having progressed
through the youth ranks). I was disappointed
to come off as I always want to play every
minute of every game like any player would,
but it was nice to be back (at Bramall Lane).
“I didn’t know that; I am buzzing with that!”
said Slater when told he had made his 50th
league start against Sheffield United. “I
wish it had been marked differently, both
personally and as a collective. However,
it is still a nice achievement for me.”
Since Rosenior took over in November,
Slater has flourished in a more advanced
role, either playing directly behind Óscar
Estupiñán or out on the left-hand side.
However, the midfielder admits that
he still has a lot to work on, including
adding to his tally of three goals so far
this season in the Championship.
“I am enjoying it a lot,” explained Slater.
“It is not completely new to me, but it is
still relatively new. I am being asked to
do things that I have never really been
asked to do before and I am enjoying that
challenge. It would be even better if I can
just add a few more goals to my game.
“I have really enjoyed it since the gaffer
arrived. He has been really good, not
just for me but for everyone in the
squad. I think everyone can see our
performances are a lot better and that we
are getting better with every game.”
The Tigers were unbeaten in six in the
Championship before last weekend’s defeat
against the Blades, and this afternoon’s
game against Queens Park Rangers provides
the perfect opportunity for the team to
respond and get a positive result in front
of the home faithful at the MKM Stadium.
“We know they have got good players,
but I think at the moment for us it is
important to concentrate on what we
want to do,” added Slater. “We need to
eradicate these early goals we’ve been
conceding from our game. I think if we
can be on the front foot and start games a
lot better, then our results will change.”

NETTING IN THE UNDER-18S’ MOST RECENT FIXTURE, HARRY
SPENCE IS HOPING TO CONTINUE ON DEVELOPING BETWEEN
NOW AND THE END OF THE 2022/23 SEASON.
The first-year scholar netted the Tigers’
first in a 4-1 victory over Birmingham City
in the Professional Development League,
with the Bishop Auckland-born forward
delighted with the display.
“The performance as a team was
really good,” said Spence. “We
were in a new system and for
me personally, I had the freedom
to do what I am good at which
is attacking one-on-one and
creating and scoring goals.
“I am not going to say my goal is the
best goal the league has ever seen,
but sometimes you need a bit
of luck for things to go well
for your team and luckily
it happened to me. A
goal is a goal at the
end of the day!”

on how the
have helped him settle into life as a full-time
“I have enjoyed the first six months of my
scholarship. Coming into the building
full-time is a difficult change from
Under-16s and you are made
well aware of that before coming
in. I think for a lot of the lads, it
was a bit of a shock, but as the
year has gone on, we have got
a lot better; it has been a good
learning lesson,” explained Spence.
“John and Billy have really helped me.
They have showed me how I need
to approach a game, because I
have always been told that I
have had the ability to be a
footballer, but sometimes my
attitude has let me down.
They have showed me that
there are a lot of other players
like me, but the difference
between me and them is
going to be my attitude.
“I just want to keep working
as hard as possible Monday
to Friday and show what I can
do on a matchday. It is not just
about the matchday, it is about
working hard every day to
improve,” concluded Spence.

THE UNDER-21S EARNED A POINT AGAINST
TOP-OF-THE-TABLE SHEFFIELD UNITED
IN THEIR MOST RECENT PROFESSIONAL
DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE FIXTURE.
Chances were a premium throughout
the fixture, but it was Blades’ forward
Will Osula that broke the deadlock on
the 23rd minute, firing a thunderous
strike into the top corner.
Josh Hinds got the decisive equaliser 16
minutes later as he got the final touch to
put the ball over the line after a goalmouth
scramble was created by Jevon Mills’ header.
The Tigers did have the ball in the net in the
second half as Jake Leake converted from
close-range, after initial efforts from Tom
Nixon and Oliver Green were blocked, but
the linesman ruled out the goal for offside.
U21s (v Sheffield United): Robson;
Emmanuel, Mills, Taylor; Nixon (Chorlton
73’), O. Green, Wood, Leake (C); C. Jones;

VICTORY OF 2023 AS THEY
DEFEATED BIRMINGHAM CITY 4-1
AT BISHOP BURTON COLLEGE.
Harry Spence netted the Tigers’ first
directly from a corner in the first-half,
with the Birmingham City goalkeeper
diverting the ball into his own net.
Ralph Nkomba scored the Under-18s’
second as Jake Brown won possession high
up the pitch before squaring the ball to
the forward to place his composed oneon-one
finish into the bottom corner.
The provider turned goalscorer for the
third as a quickly taken free-kick resulted
in Brown finishing a low cross at the
back post, before an unnamed trialist
secured the three points as he drilled a
left-footed shot into the far corner.

WELCOME TO OUR NEW RECRUIT
Position: Winger Loaned from: Crystal Palace
Born in South London, the 19-yearold
was initially signed by Chelsea
at the age of five, before he moved
across the capital to join Arsenal’s
well-regarded Hale End Academy after
spending six years at Stamford Bridge.
Despite starting 2019/20 by making his
Under-18s debut for Arsenal having recorded
three goals and three assists in as many
matches for the Under-16s, Ebiowei was
ultimately released by the Gunners and opted
to move up to Scotland to join Rangers.
After a season with Rangers, Ebiowei joined
Derby County in 2021 and impressed for the
Under-18s, scoring 10 goals in nine games
across all competitions at the beginning of
last season, including hat-tricks against Leeds
United and Chelsea. As a reward for his
performances, Ebiowei was handed
his senior debut by Wayne Rooney
against the Tigers in February 2022.
He went on to make a total of 16
Championship appearances for the
Rams in 2021/22, scoring one
goal which remains his only
senior goal to date. He
opened the scoring for the
Rams in a 2-0 win against
Blackpool at Bloomfield
Road in April 2022,
before also assisting Eiran
Cashin’s strike, which
ultimately resulted in him
being named man of the
match after the game.
The highly-rated winger was
snapped up on a five-year contract
by Premier League outfit Crystal
Palace in June 2022 as he linked up
with Patrick Viera’s squad following
the expiration of his contract at Derby.
Although he has been included in Palace’s
matchday squad for majority of their Premier
League games so far this season, Ebiowei has
only been introduced as a substitute on three
occasions, with 31 minutes of top flight
football to his name to date. He was also
introduced as a substitute in Palace’s
two Carabao Cup outings against
Oxford United and Newcastle United.
Internationally, Ebiowei was involved
with England’s Under-15s during
the summer of 2017. He went
on to play one game for
England Under-16s against
Türkiye, as well as two
Under-15 games for the
Netherlands, for whom he
was also eligible. More
recently, the winger made
his England Under-20 debut
as a substitute during a 3-0 win
against Chile in September 2022.
