I am a Hull City fanatic who has been obsessed with all things black and amber since I attended my first game in February 1987. I was a months short of my seventh birthday and The Tigers were defeated 2-0 by Portsmouth.
I have been a season ticket holder since 2000 when I finally earned enough money to afford a season ticket and my Mum's "board".
I have been writing about Hull City as a hobby for the last decade and have written for the Metro, contributed Hull City pieces to the Guardian and Observer and co-hosted Radio Humberside's Sportstalk show on numerous occasions.
I was formerly on the board of the Hull City Supporters Trust and campaigned proudly to ensure the club's identity remained Hull City AFC.
I'm also a Level 1 football coach and qualified referee and I serve as club secretary of Hessle Rangers FC.
