Many of the photographs on this website have been provided by two fine fellows, Dave Richardson and Dave Lofthouse. Some have been used thanks to permission granted by Hull City AFC, for which I am extremely grateful. I am also indebted to Martin Batchelor, who has sourced photos from his amazingly comprehensive collection of Hull City programmes.
Many of the older photographs have been sourced from the superb gallery on the Senior Tigers website – many thanks to Rob Wilson, Tony Conway and the Senior Tigers committee for allowing me to make use of this resource.
This site benefits from a considerable amount of original research regarding the births and deaths of ex-City players, especially those who played before World War 2. The site contains new information not found in other City-related online and print reference sources – and thanks go to Dave Richardson for his tenacious work in tracking down so many ex-players born 100 or more years ago using various genealogy resources.
Some information has been gleaned from various books about Hull City – Douglas Lamming, Chris Elton, David Bond and Mike Peterson have all published superb reference works that I have drawn upon. Details of players’ careers at other clubs have often been embellished by the superb English National Football Archive website.
I am grateful to Paul Chapman for his diligent and tireless checking of various sources, including contemporary newspapers, to check and add value to the data that underpins this whole website. Your help has been invaluable, Paul.
And final thanks go to Matt Wales, who looks after the incredible Tigerbase website and provided me with his original spreadsheet of City fixtures that I have added to over the years, enabling me to produce the stats on this website. You totally inspired me, Matt.
