All fans of the football club should join the Supporters Trust!

Those are the words from the new HUST Honorary President Eddie Kyle when Chairman Richard Ward spoke with him this week.

As announced at the AGM in December, we are delighted that Eddie has agreed to become HUST’s next honorary president, and Eddie has already impressed us immensely with his passion for and commitment to supporting HUST’s aims.

We used the opportunity to meet with Eddie to discuss why he has decided to get involved with HUST, which Eddie describes as a “privilege”, and to ask how he feels he can help HUST grow further.

Eddie is clear in his view that fans must become more involved with their clubs, while he agrees that the current owners deserve applause for stepping in and without doubt have the right intentions for the club – and how everyone wants them to be a success.  However, as we never know what the future might hold, he appeals to as many supporters as possible to get involved with HUST to prepare a financial buffer for the fans should it ever be needed in future.

And of course, as a passionate Pools fan, Eddie also gives us his view on the latest managerial change at the football club.
