To celebrate our youngest HUST members, for the next few months we’re holding a special draw following our monthly lottery draw, with a prize going to a lucky u16 member. Find out April’s winner here.

As part of Autism Acceptance Month and HUST’s link up with North East Autism Society and HUFC Disabled Supporters Association (HUDSA), we are delighted to launch a ‘Visual Story’ to help autistic supporters attend Pools matches.

As part of HUST’s and the Disabled Supporters Association’s commitment to Autism Acceptance Month, we have developed some sensory kits to be available for supporters to use on match days.

When we published ‘A View from an Autistic Poolie’ we said that every autistic person has different experiences so we were delighted when Kevin Cosgrave got in touch to talk about going to the Vic, and a few other grounds, with his son Ged. We got the ball rolling by asking Kevin about the impact of autism on Ged.

Every autistic person has their own experiences and opinions. To mark Autism Acceptance Week we spoke to Ryan, an autistic Pools fan and HUST member, about his early years, way into football, and what could be done to encourage more autistic people to come to the Vic.

An ongoing campaign to make sure that everybody feels welcome at the Vic took another step forward on Tuesday as HUST President, Julia Newton, was joined by representatives of the North East Autism Society, HUSA, HUDSA, and the club, to launch a host of activities aimed at supporting Autism Acceptance Week and forward through the next month.
