Now the season has finished and been put to bed all eyes are set on next season. With that in mind here’s some of the main stories to come from our local teams so far!
David Meyler & Allan McGregor Exit
After many years with the club, both David Meyler and Allan McGregor have left The Tigers.
Allan McGregor has found himself back with his childhood club Rangers. McGregor will be a huge loss for the team, who will be looking to backup keeper David Marshall, or perhaps giving youth prospects more opportunity. One player waiting in the wings is Will Mannion, who has proven himself in the Academy over the past few years.
A huge loss to the team is David Meyler. What he sometimes lacked in quality (though still a great player) he more than made up for in effort. His inclusion in the squad usually resulted in a more spirited performance by the team, and his impact on and off the pitch is undoubted. No doubt there will be a number of clubs hammering his agent’s phone over the coming weeks, and no doubt we will be hearing news of him signing shortly.
Allams Still Remain
It seems like a century ago that the Allams said the club is for sale. After countless rumours of takeovers we’re still no closer to the long-awaited exit. Could a takeover be on the cards during the summer? We can only hope.
After a winter move to North Ferriby United, Brett Agnew has returned to Brid. Though currently only a coaching role whilst he recovers from a serious knee injury, the return of the Flying Scotsman is very much welcome from the Town faithful.
In a move that surprised many, Nathan Doyle has joined Brid Town. Curtis Woodhouse announced his arrival yesterday out of the blue without any of the usual hints or suggestions. Doyle comes to Brid with bags of experience, and will hopefully benefit some of the younger players. Hull fans will remember his goal in the play-off semi-final against Watford, which helped send City to the Premier League for the first time (10 years ago, wow!).
Another addition to the coaching team is Gavin Kelly. Kelly will be working with town’s goalkeepers and hopefully help the club earn some much-needed clean sheets in the season which Town will be looking to earn promotion.

Change In Ownership
After months of turmoil, a relegation, and some quite frankly silly suggestions to raise funds for the club, the team now finds itself in new hands. Carl Chadwick took over the club from Jamie Waltham ending months of headline-grabbing stories including the proposed move to Dunswell and turning the pitch into a travellers site to raise funds for the club.
We wish Carl all the best with North Ferriby United, and hope to be able to offer better coverage of the club going forward. That is, of course, assuming we get replies to emails this time around!
