Hull City Supporters have in recent years been constantly protesting against club owners unconventional policies, policies such as the change in club name and abolishing all concession prices. Despite that, recently club and trust have worked together unanimously on one particular project close to local hearts.
Fifty years ago three Hull Trawlers were lost at sea with a loss of 58 lives. There was much publicity locally on the anniversary in February and many tributes have since poured in. Hull City Supporters Trust (HCST) were given the opportunity to work with the local community after a generous donation of match worn Hull City shirts were made by the club to the local Triple Trawler Memorial Groups.
The groups asked Geoff Bielby, HCST Chairman, for help and he introduced local HCST members to assist in shirt sales to raise funds for the memorial groups.
Despite ongoing disputes between fans and club at Hull City, this is a great example of positive work that can happen between a club and its supporters trust. Community-led and memorial work are just some of the ways that HCST affects its local community and we are proud of their achievements to date.
