Radford Urges Fans To Play Part On Friday Night

Tuesday 26 Apr 2016 4:13pm
Lee Radford has urged the Black and Whites supporters to back the boys this Friday and get their tickets for the BIG Night Out against Catalans Dragons.

The Hull FC head coach believes the ‘Faithful’ have a huge part to play when Catalans come to town this week for the centre piece fixture of the club’s Hull&Proud Week.

Fourth-placed Hull could move even further up the Super League ladder if they can secure a win on Friday night (April 29th, 8pm) against high-flying Catalans.

The Airlie Birds have won six of their last seven games, including Sunday’s eight-try victory over Wakefield, whilst Laurent Faryssinous’ Dragons have picked up seven consecutive wins in recent weeks.

Radford insists that every fan has a job to do this week and that a loud and packed-out Stadium could prove the difference for Hull on Friday.

“We’re coming up against a fantastic opposition and hopefully we can use our home advantage,” he said.

“The Stadium is going to be bouncing and I’m asking every man and his dog to turn out for us. They will have a huge influence on our performance and the result.

“The work the club is doing off the field has been huge.

“We are Hull. We are proud. So come and show your support because we’ll be even prouder on Friday if we get the result.”

He continued: “You couldn’t have written the script any better.

“If you look at our team, it’s full of superstars. If you look at their team on paper, it’s full of big superstars.

“I wish I could go as a neutral to watch it because it’s going to be a fantastic event.”

Hull-born local lad Radford, who enjoyed three spells as a player with the Black and Whites, has praised the work the players have done over the past few days in the community.

As part of Hull&Proud Week, the players have been doing their bit in local schools to engage with young fans.

“The boys are out and about in the city this week in schools and doing promotions, banging the drum.

"We’ve wanted a successful Black and White side for a while and now we are up and amongst it."
