Diary Dates for the 2021-2022 Season

It has been a long long 18 months but on Thursday, 2nd September 2021, we were back!

After such a long time, whilst Covid-19 pulled us apart, we were able to return and an incredible 139 were chomping at the bit to get some return to normality, to the way it used to be. Everyone was asked to respect the special Guidelines, to keep masks ready and to sit at socially distanced tables in the Kingston Suite. There was hand gel and sanitised wipes but it still seemed like ‘normal’, back among friends. At the front, there was the wonderful League One Championship Trophy, probably the first time any of us had actually seen it. It was magnificent and many members took the opportunity to have photos & selfies alongside – “look, enjoy, but don’t touch!”

At 1.45 pm David, our Chair opened proceedings with a warm welcome. He then handed over to the Club Secretary for Allen to lead us in a short time of Reflection for those members who had passed away since our last meetings. (Members) Gerry Ashton, Ken Atkinson, George Baker, Les Fuller, Brenda Fullerton, Ken Furmage, Graham Kettlewell, Pete Maltby & Ron Philips. (Member’s partners & family) Jill Crossland, John Wood & George Ellis. (Former players/coaches) Colin Appleton, Jeff Barmby, Chris Chilton & Mike Smith. All were remembered and Allen closed with two short prayers. (Following the meeting two more former players were mentioned: John McSeveney & Len Sharpe who both played for the Tigers in the early 1960s.

David then gave special appreciation for the incredible work of Paul Bryan throughout the long lockdown. Month after month Paul would ‘phone every single Senior Tiger to check on how they were. It was an incredible undertaking – 5000+ calls, some short and cheery ones, some long and caring ones. In response, Paul said, “I rang you but you spoke to me, which was great”.

David also mentioned that Alan Acklam (Acklam’s Coaches) had again put forward the sponsorship that covers the costs of our first two meetings.

As the clock reached 2.00 pm our very special Guest, George Honeyman, who was the run-away winner of our Player of the Season (20-21). Warm and spontaneous applause was soon acknowledging George as he took his place on the dais. First things first, George was presented with the wonderful Player of the Season Trophy with Pat Betts once again doing the honours. Once Goerge had lifted and admired his trophy he was then asked to swop it for a rather smaller memento!

The Chair put a string of searching questions to George but started with the most important one – how’s your ankle and when will you be back playing! George mentioned that he had been told 10 weeks at the start but things were going really well and he is hopeful of bringing that down to 10 weeks. He is running well and should soon be back among the other players on the Training Ground with hopes that it won’t be long after the current international break.

Asked about his family background he mentioned that they were not serious sportspeople although his dad supported Newcastle Unt and his mum – Sunderland! George had been turned down by the Newcastle Academy when he was 8 years old, Sunderland gave him the chance two years later. The following years required complete dedication from his parents since the Training Ground was about an hour’s drive away – there and back on two evenings every week, plus most Saturdays and Sundays. It was clear that George appreciated that level of commitment and the opportunity it gave him to follow his ambitions. He talked about key moments, debut in the cup against Bradford City, Premier League debut against Stoke and his first goals too. Asked whether his first goal was ‘good’ or a ‘fluke’ he responded with pride that he had arrived at the back post on time to tap it in. He gave praise to two of his key coaches through the academy – Kevin Ball & Ged McNamee.

Personal highs, like being appointed Captain under manager Jack Ross, the first lad from the Academy to become Captain for many a long year. Lows, relegation from the Championship to League One. He was completely taken by surprise when Hull City came calling for him, completely out of the blue and suddenly he was in Hull, put up in the Beverley Arms Hotel. Playing high tempo saw him quickly win over the fans and he admitted it was hard during the lockdown not having those fans alongside. George admitted he tried to avoid superstitions, rather rife among footballers, he wants to get on with his game. The recent arrival of Tom Huddleston excites him and the team. George admitting it was “great to see someone to look up to and bounce off”. It was clear that he is really looking forwards to playing in tandem with ‘The Hudd’. Spirit seems to be very much alive in the team, loads of fun and constant banter bring many belly laughs – and the culprit in chief? Josh Maginnis!

George recognises that there are challenges ahead in the Championship but we are a team with great local strength, really exciting for the future even if it means some mistakes will occur along the way. Consistency will be the key. Does being in Hull match his experiences at Sunderland? One clear difference is that in the North East everyone follows football and there is simply no place to hide, in Hull those passions are divided between football and rugby league and that can be the difference in doing a bit of anonymous local shopping! Asked about the growing problem of professional fouls, e.g. Shirt tugging, he tried to remain non-committal, “How can I complain? I do it!” He liked the idea of being a rather irritating player for the opposition, always up in their faces. He suggested that what he lacks in stature he can replace with that irritating attitude.

What a fabulous Q&A session from a player clearly comfortable among us. Let’s hope we see him on the field soon.

There was a short break, giving members to sign up for activities and collect their new membership cards. Last opportunities were also taken for photos with the League One Championship Trophy. Members were then welcomed to our Annual Meeting which included the Chair’s End of Year Report, the receiving of our Accounts and an update on the website changes. We shared appreciation for two retiring members of the committee, Helen Carter & John Watt. The remaining seven members were re-elected and joined by Tony Conway. Tony has done a massive job chairing the Memorabilia & Heritage Project and will be a great addition to the committee.

Barbara confirmed that the first two trips (September to Filey & Thornton le Dale and October to Ripon) were now fully booked. The first two visits to The Deep for the Silver Sharks sessions were filling well. Next month we will be taking bookings for the Christmas Luncheon on December 2nd.

We are truly back, yes, The Senior Tigers are back!

It was great to get our first outing on the way, after the Covid lockdown, with 42 members enjoying a trip to Filey and Thornton-le-Dale!

The sun was shining and the hour and a half of leisure time was lovely.

Some went for coffee, some for a walk, some bargain hunting in Dixons, while others enjoyed sitting in the gardens overlooking the bay.

Our lunch at the Glasshouse by Charlottes was really enjoyable and the staff made it a successful experience.

Getting to Thornton-le-Dale was a bit delayed, due to a problem with getting a coach through a road where day-trippers had decided to park on double yellow lines making the access for our coach almost impossible.

We had about an hour, when we finally arrived, giving us time for a delicious ice-cream, and a walk around the beautiful village.

Our journey home was extended due to our driver trying to avoid two accidents, but finally got back to the MKM stadium safely after a great day out.

Our first meeting back in the Dug Out saw approx. 110 members and an exciting buzz. For Covid reasons, we kept the doors open but with a warm and sunny afternoon that presented no problems. Our guest was ex-Tiger, Stan McEwan. His arrival was acknowledged with a warm ovation, our members had not forgotten a much-loved player from the 1980s.

Chairman David, did his best to steer questions to Stan, although it seemed that Stan was usually one step ahead each time! From his introduction, we learned that he grew up in Newmains, near Stirling (Scotland) and that he was not the only footballer in the family. His brother Billy also played professional football and his sister not only played the game but also played for Scotland.

At 15 Stan left school and joined Rangers as an apprentice but when it came to being offered a full-time professional contract it was another club that attracted him - Blackpool. He went on to make 213 appearances for the Tangerines, scoring 24 goals. He made his senior debut against West Bromwich Albion in 1974 at the age of 17 years. When Stan described his first goal he modestly said it was "a great goal!" Managers come and go, his third at Blackpool was Bob Stokoe and Stan described him as "a taskmaster" and "disciplinarian". Stan admitted that living in Blackpool there were many distractions for young footballers, Stokoe kept them focussed. Othe managers there were Harry Potts, Allan Brown, Stan Ternant & Alan Ball.

Stan was a prolific penalty taker - even took two penalties at Wembley. He said that the key was always to be positive. He said, with a sigh, that whilst he scored nearly every penalty he took, the fans don't forget the ones he missed and looking at a room of City fans he said "I bet everyone here remembers the one I missed!"

After 8 seasons at Blackpool he moved on to Exeter City - it was supposed to be Cardiff City but as the Bluebirds dithered the Grecians took the opportunity to trump them! He had 2 good years, 65 appearances and 15 goals but he was a long way from home - he still had his house in Blackpool and travelled to the south-west every Tuesday morning. In 1984 he was given the opportunity to return north, Don Robinson and his manager Colin Appleton bringing him to Hull. A contract had been agreed when he came over to Hull and met Colin who then told him he had to go up to Scarborough and sign the contract with the 'Don'. Don Robinson surprised him by saying he wanted to 'squeeze' the contract a little, to get him to sign for less than had been agreed. Don was used to getting his way but not Stan, he turned around, walked out and went home to Blackpool! Colin had to rescue him assuring him that the real contract was waiting for him to sign and that the 'Don' had just been "trying him out!"

Stan loved coming to Hull, it kind of reminded him of home and the people were "fantastic!" He scored in his 2nd game (v. Bury) and he soon formed a formidable partnership with Pete Skipper. That first season saw them needing to beat Burnley (away) in the last match by 3 clear goals, they came agonisingly close but a 2-0 win saw them miss out to Sheffield United. Colin Appleton immediately resigned and the club brought in Brian Horton. The dressing room was lively too with one Billy Whitehurst. It was nothing to find ' Deep Heat' spayed in your underpants or car tyres mysteriously flat! Later, during questions, Stan was asked how he coped with big Billy and he replied "I stood up to him and he backed off". Probably a brave decision but it paid off!! There was, however, a great team spirit and they were promoted the following season. Stan contributed 14 goals during that great season - "not bad for a centre back" added our Chairman. Altogether, Stan played 113 games for The Tigers and scored 25 goals.

Asked for the players he played against, which ones stood out. George Best, Rodney Marsh & Bobby Moore were his answers. He then told a story from when Alan Ball was his manager at Blackpool. Ball had promised that if the team got a good result, playing away in the capital, he would set up for them to have a night out at a London nightclub. The players did their part and the manager kept his promise. Stan crawled into his London bed at around 3.00 am, exhausted, only for him to get a call on the phone - his manager telling him to report to his room immediately! With some fear and trepidation, Stan went and knocked on his manager's door - only to find that Alan Ball had set up for him to meet his heroes! Bobby Moore, Rodney Marsh and Malcolm MacDonald, and it was just gone 3.00 am!

Stan was asked why, after he had finished playing, did he remain living in the Hull area. Once again he referred to how great the people were … and one in particular since he married a local girl.

He was asked about today's football and admitted to not being a fan of the 'playing from the back' that we see so often now. He said that if his goalie had thrown the ball to him on the edge of the box he would immediately have hoofed it clear over Bunker's Hill!

Asked about Keane Lewis-Potter he was clearly impressed but wish they would play him more down the middle than out wide. Speaking as a central defender he said that the last thing you want is someone with pace running at you.

He was asked about the present thinking about heading footballs. He admitted that if possible he had always left the heading options to his partner, Skip, whilst he preferred to bring the ball down with his chest. He thought that the current debate is far from complete.

Although the Boothferry Park pitch, in his days, was one of the best in the country he agreed that the modern pitches are ones he could only have 'dreamed' of playing on. "They are like carpets" he added.

A question was asked about Banter between players and the referees. He acknowledged that the days when players could share a conversation with the refs have gone. Today's refs were being assessed at every moment and they really couldn't afford to be drawn into chats and banter. Pity.

Finally, asked about the current team he said they were a young squad on a steep learning curve. There was clearly some talent but plenty of graft ahead too. So ended a fascinating conversation.

Earlier Barbara had updated members on the Outings with still a few places left on the trip to Wold Top Brewery (Nov. 18th). There were 4 places left for the 'Silver Sharks' visit to The Deep (Nov. 2nd) and people were asked to contact Allen if they were interested. The Chairman had encouraged people to come and take part in the Walking Football sessions on Monday and Thursday mornings. A no show of hands suggested that we were not ready to make a start to Walking Netball, at least for the time being. The meeting closed with the excitement of the Raffle with all the tickets drawn by Stan.

Our outing this month saw us making our way to Ripon.

It was a cold day, but again the sun shone for us.

We were greeted into the town by the 'matron' of the workhouse,

dressed in a long grey dress and white cap.

We formed an orderly line and followed her around the corner into the

Workhouse building.

We were served in the refectory with delicious jam and cream scones and plenty of tea and coffee. We then split into 3 groups and had an amazing tour and insight into the harsh life that the inmates would have experienced.

The building has had a huge Heritage Lottery Grant and work to bring the building back to its former state is still ongoing.

There were even kitchen gardens, which the residents would have been expected to tend to grow fruit and vegetables. These gardens are still in use and produce is sold to the villagers to earn an income to help the restoration.

Clive couldn't resist walking past the piano in the Master's sitting room, and his group were entertained with a sing-a-long led by one of the curators.

There was a 'boardroom' where the guardians would meet to decide who was going into their care and to plan for their future, and there was segregation between males and females.

School children visitors get the chance to do hands-on cooking as they are learning about life in an institution but use a new Aga rather than the original stoves - (H&S you know!).

We then had 2 ½ hours of free time, to wander around Ripon, and get lunch. It was market day and there were lots of nice tea rooms. Nearly everyone visited the beautiful Cathedral - a great imposing building, now used for music and theatre as well as church services. The whole town was covered in knitted poppies which were knitted for the Centenary of the British Legion but kept and brought out this year again for Armistice Day.

We all met up again at the Magistrates museum, at the side of the Cathedral.

Here, everyone sat in the courtroom, and then volunteers were called to re-enact a court case.

Adrian Ellis was the judge, and naughty Pete Wilson and Jim Cook were accused of pinching tools from a local shopkeeper, Ken Wilson.

However, the final verdict was that they were both guilty, but Pete was banished to Australia for a few years, and Jim got a month's hard labour. I have heard from Pete since, and he said he was very sea-sick on the crossing!

We had a very pleasant ride home with Dave our driver, and look forward to our next outing to Wold Top Brewery next month.

Approximately 120 members gathered for the November meeting which took place, at the club's request, in The Kingston Suite at the MKM Stadium.

We were delighted to welcome Lewie Coyle as our guest - one of our own. Lewie was born in the city and into an incredibly sporting family. Until Lewie joined the club the family were perhaps best known for his brother, Tommy, who has been a hugely successful boxer and former Commonwealth Champion. With Tommy now retired the focus is clearly on Lewie although we must note that there are other sporting successes. One brother, Joe, is the professional at Hull Golf Club and the youngest, Rocco, has just been awarded a scholarship with the Hull City Academy. Lewie even commented that he was doing well but, hopefully, not too well as he plays in the same right back position!

Lewie was quick to give praise to his parents for their support, "massive" he said for the support he receives from his dad who attends all the matches. Mum would probably attend if she didn't have to take over the running of the family's famous Fruit & Veg stall in King Edward Street while his dad went to the stadium!

Lewie attended a local school in the city and admitted it was "the best time in his life", he loved it. His entry into football came at an early age. He was taken on by ex-Tiger, Darren France, at North Ferriby United and after a short period when he was 'useless' suddenly things clicked into place and he was soon noted by scouts for Leeds United. As a 10-year-old at Leeds, he was even being 'spotted' by Chelsea and even Barcelona but he was happy at Leeds. When he joined their Academy structures he kind of suggested that he had always been a Leeds United fan but tried to assure us he was really Hull City from the beginning and only trying to impress them! At Leeds, he had the support of people like Neil Redfern and former Tiger, Neil Thompson. There was certainly a good set-up at Leeds and he thrived. During the week he lodged nearby in Wetherby, along with three other young players and admitted it had helped him "to grow up".

In 2016 Lewie made his Leeds debut, albeit as a late substitute away at Nottingham Forest - 2 minutes. He still admitted he was 'blowing' thanks to the adrenalin drain! His full starting debut came at Elland Road in a game he will always remember against Rotherham United in the FA Cup. They won 2 - 0.

Leeds signed him on a 3-year contract in 2018 but to accelerate his game he was happy to go on loan to lower clubs. He had already been loaned to Harrogate Town but he was unlucky to break a metatarsal in his 2nd game with them. The club that really helped him was Fleetwood Town where he spent three periods on loan (2017-2020) before eventually signing a permanent contract with the coastal club. This includes an FA Cup game against Chorley Borough when he managed to receive his first Red Card. Fleetwood still went on to win and the manager said afterwards that "we played better with 10 men!" In was included in a home FA Cup tie with Premier League Leicester City, a game that attracted a full capacity stadium and a draw that saw them head to Leicester for the reply. In 2018 Lewie received the best of accolades, The Players' Player of the Season Award. By now his manager was Joey Barton, a footballer who has attracted some 'raised eyebrows', but someone who Lewie described as "Second to none". He was ready to play wherever his manager wanted him and this soon meant higher up the field as central mid-field and then across to the left-back position.

Settled at Fleetwood and only 6 months into his permanent contract he suddenly heard that Hull City was 'hovering'. This clearly excited him, the chance to fulfil his dream and play for his home city club and he encouraged the possibility with the full support of Joey Barton who would never have stood in his way for such a move.

Lewie's arrival with the Tigers coincided with a hang-over suspension as well as an injury issue. This meant that Josh Emmanuel got the first chance and he made it tough for Lewie to break through into the first team. When that opportunity did arrive he said it felt so strange without the fans to make an impact. His first goal for The Tigers came in January 2021, when we played Fleetwood Town! Lewie came up with the winner and was swamped by his colleagues as he tried desperately NOT to celebrate against his previous club! He described that season as "surreal", "a season that will be forever in my heart" and told the meeting that his League One Winner's medal displays proudly in the cabinet at home.

Questions were invited from the members.

Asked whether the empty stadiums affected his performances last season he said that it was "very strange but you get on with it". He certainly prefers it with the crowds in attendance - even if they give the stick!

Gordon asked who decides which player takes a penalty. The comment came back, "Not Malik, for sure!". The Manager, of course, makes that decision we were informed. Asked about the daily Training schedule Lewie told us it starts with Breakfast at 9 am then a visit to the Gym followed by some time on the pitch. Which day decided what the pitch work would be. They are then back in the gym before lunch. Some of the players will then stay on for the afternoon, playing pool is very popular!

Trevor asked about throw-ins. He wanted to know why, as a full back, more option of throwing to a player in an "off-side" position is not taken since there is no off-side at a throw-in. Point made!

Paul asked a cheeky one! He wanted to know whether there were ever fights and scuffles at home when the boys were growing up, especially with his brother Tommy! In answer, he admitted that there were scuffles but that, being the younger, he usually lost! Indeed, he added, "I never won!" He did mention that his dad would always make the lads resolve their arguments before they went to sleep, good advice there.

Asked to spill some beans on his teammates he declared that Josh Magennis is the 'Joker' in the dressing room, Greg Docherty is the most 'Superstitious' - "way too much for my liking!", and that George Moncur is the 'Singer' in the squad. During a preseason bonding all the players had to sing in front of their mates, most were 'dubious' but George surprised them all, "he smashed it!"

It has to be acknowledged that it has not been a good start to the return to the Championship and Lewie admitted that it was very frustrating for the players and that they also understand how much it is for the fans too. They were trying to ensure that all last season's good work does not go to waste. "Stick with us, bear with us".

Lewie then took his leave meeting but he had won our hearts.

Barbara updated the members about the Christmas Luncheon. We are booked in the Circle Restaurant. The doors would open at noon and everyone should be in their seats for 12.45 pm. There would be entertainment and a big raffle! Members who were still to pay were now encouraged to do so.

There were just 2 spaces available on the Wold Top trip which would leave the Stadium at 8.45 am on Thursday 18th November.

The Spurs trip, planned for 17th March had had an incredible response. It would be a long day and cost £57 (£33 coach & £24 stadium tour) but this had not deterred members. Almost full but a reserve list would be held should people have to drop out nearer the time.

Members attending North Ferriby United on Saturday 13th should just mention that they are with the Senior Tigers and give their name at the turnstile. We have a block of 32 seats set aside in the stand.

The afternoon ended with the ever-popular Raffle and 13 members were far from unlucky!
