Hull welcome fans' poll

HULL fans have urged owner Assem Allam to forget about his plan to change the club's name and repair his relationship with supporters.

City confirmed yesterday that they will poll season ticket holders over the proposal to re-brand the club as "Hull Tigers", and accused the English Football Association of being prejudiced after learning that its membership committee had recommended the Full Council to reject Allam's proposal at its meeting on April 9.

The City Till We Die campaign group is confident any poll will result in a "no" vote, and hope that will be the end of the matter despite the owner's stated intention to walk away if he does not get the answer he wants from the FA.

Spokesperson Mark Gretton said: "We have been broadly happy with what's happened under the Allams' ownership of the club and we would like this to be finished.

"That's why we welcome a season ticket holders' poll."
