YORKSHIRE WILDLIFE TRUST

 

GREAT BRITISH BEACH CLEAN

 

 

Volunteers joined Yorkshire Wildlife Trust this weekend as they took part in the Great British Beach Clean.


Yorkshire Wildlife Trust along with volunteers from across Yorkshire collected over 555 individual pieces of litter at South Landing Flamborough as part of the Marine Conservation Society’s Great British Beach Clean.

 

Vicky Pawson, Living Seas Centre Trainee said: “We take every precaution when carrying out beach cleans as you never know what you might find. This year some of the items included a kitchen knife with a blade measuring 4.5 inches, fragments of broken glass and life-like fishing lures with hooks intact. We would urge everyone to dispose of their waste responsibly and recycle as much as they can.”

 

“The beach at South Landing is now a cleaner and safer place for all to enjoy and the waste collected will not be returning to the sea; therefore protecting our marine wildlife. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all the wonderful volunteers who came and helped this weekend. Anyone who is interested in organising regular beach cleans to help us monitor litter on Yorkshire’s coastline can get involved with our Waves of Waste project by contacting us on 01262 422103.”

 

Young marine conservationist Isabella Coy (6) from Beverley has also received her Blue Peter environmental badge for her project about a recent beach clean organised by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust at Flamborough Head.

 

Isabella, who has always been a keen conservationist, had created a list of environmental projects she would like to complete by the time she is ten. Having sorted out recycling at home, created a bug hotel and a compost heap, she was determined to take part in a beach clean. Having already visited the Living Seas Centre at Flamborough, and taken part in some of the educational opportunities the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust has to offer, it only seemed natural to give back to the centre by taking part in one of their organised cleans.

 

Of the day, Bella says “It was really fun but I also learnt a lot about the litter on the beach. I liked getting to spend time on the beach and helping the animals.”

A VIEW FROM BRAZIL
Matheus Campos

 

#1 EUROPEAN DREAM......

 

 

Hey guys, welcome to my weekly column 'A view from Brazil'. First of all I want to thank TIGERLINK for giving me the opportunity to write here and share my opinion on what’s happening with our club.

 

For my first blog I would like to talk about our pre-season and the European adventure that began last month!

 

During the close season I think that Steve Bruce has made some great signings, bringing in quality and youth to the squad and we sure have a stronger squad this season. The squad looks promising for the future with so many young players who are all talented footballers.

 

The Europa League Third Qualifying Round saw us beat AS Trencin to progress to tonight's game in Belgium. It was tough and Trencin played well, but we did what was expected against a weaker team despite not being in our best form. I believe that our level of playing will only get better now - and will need to, because our opponents will only get stronger if we qualify for the Europa League proper. Lokeren will be a good test for us!

 

I am a big fan of Liam Rosenior and the other thing that the Europa League and pre-season games have shown me is that Rosenior should start. I don’t care if Steve Bruce plays him on the left or on the right, but he needs to be a starter. He is one of the most reliable players that we have in our squad, really strong in defence and supports our attacking play. Liam is one of the best English right backs in my opinion and extremely underrated.

 

At the other end of the pitch, now Long has gone we will need someone good to replace him (even though we have lots of quality in Aluko and Ince) and I hope we can buy a quality striker.

 

That’s all for now - thanks for reading!

 

C'mon the Tigers!

NOT LONG NOW.......

 

TIGERLINK APPRENTICE AND HESSLE COLTS RANGERS'

MARK BRADLEY SHARES HIS THOUGHTS

AHEAD OF THE NEW SEASON

 

 

'The start of the new season is edging closer. Newly promoted side Queens Park Rangers will host our very first game of the new season at Loftus Road. Players have left the club, new players have joined. Players who have left are Conor Townsend (loan), Mark Oxley (loan), Joe Dudgeon (loan), Matty Fryatt (Forest), Abdoulaye Faye (released), Robert Koren, (released) and Nick Proschwitz (released). Proschwitz was one of Steve Bruce's first signings for the Tigers and he is the only transfer flop Steve Bruce has made in his two years in charge. Also today, breaking news as Shane Long leaves the Tigers for a £12m fee and heads off to Southampton.

 

Tigerlink would like to wish all of the players who have departed the club best wishes for the rest of their careers. 

 

However, there are also new faces at the KC Stadium for this season. Robert Snodgrass, Tom Ince, Harry Maguire, Andy Robertson and Jake Livermore are the new signings at the club. Livermore joins Hull City after a successful loan spell at the club last season. Robert Snodgrass was arguably Norwich's best player last season and will hope to keep up his form this season. The likes of Tom Ince and Harry Maguire have proven themselves at Championship and League One level respectively. Not many fans have heard of Andy Robertson though. The left back joined the Tigers from Dundee United at the end of July. He scored a goal against Stuttgart in City's last pre season friendly. On Twitter, rumour has it that City are close to a deal with Man Utd striker Danny Welbeck for £14m to replace Shane Long. If Welbeck was to sign, he'd be on £60,000 a week. 

 

Away from the league, City are also competing in Europe for the first ever time in their 110 year history. Thanks to a bullet header from Ahmed Elmohamady and a spectacular volley from Sone Aluko (after AS Trencin striker Malec had given the Slovakian side an early lead in last week's game), the Tigers go through to the play off round and will come up against Belgian side Lokeren in home and away legs.'

PHIL PAGE - G'DAY FROM AUSTRALIA

 

 

Here is a message from Phil, a lifelong Tigers fan who has been following City from Oz for the last five years;

 

'I've been supporting City all my life but me and son Charlie gave our East Stand passes up in September 2009 to migrate to Adelaide. Saw everything at Boothferry and the playoff at Wembley and first 18 months in the Premier League before coming out here. I miss it terribly but watch every game home and away on Foxsports channel in Oz. Don't really have a favourite player in the current team we have, to us they are all as good, think it's a fab team we are devoloping.  Billy Whitehurst was a fave of mine in the 80's and Tony Norman. I have just joined 'Hull City Australia' and we have 420 members in just a week. I would like to wish Steve Bruce and the players all the best for the coming season. UTT!'

Robbie's time as a Hull City player coincided with some of our most glorious years and he played a big part in stabilising the Club in the Championship and their return to the Premier League and the Wembley adventures. He leaves some great memories and goes with our very best wishes.

WORLD CUP BLOG

 

MATHEUS CAMPOS - SAO PAULO, BRAZIL

 

Matheus is our friend in Sao Paulo and a huge Hull City fan. Matheus will be writing for us about the World Cup. Here is his first blog;

 

 

 

The World Cup is almost here, and this text is to try to explain to you guys how the preparation of the World Cup is going here in Brazil.

 
We have less than a month to the start of the competition and some facilities are still not finished. However, there are those that think there should be a greater emphasis on improvements in the quality of our life, and some people are complaining that all the money that is going to be spent on the World Cup could been spent with new schools, hospitals and basic needs that some of us don’t have.
 
But I believe that everything will be ready when all of you guys around the world come to visit us! Or if they aren’t ready, they will look ready during the time that you will be here, after that we will face the real problems of this event. We have lots of problems in our country and lots of corruption. Brazil is one of the richest countries in the world, but with lots of social inequality.
 
But now I will speak of the good things, the security is being reinforced for the World Cup, so I don’t think that it will be a major problem here, and I do believe that you guys will find a huge party when you come over to watch the games! We will recieve every one of you with open arms and try to make you all enjoy the best of Brazil!
 
We will have lots of parties, games and events during the World Cup that I have no doubt will make your time here one of the best in your life. Brazil is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, with a huge variety of options for you all to have fun, and you shouldn’t doubt when I say that we are the most receptive country in the world, even with our problems.
 
Once again I offer my help to any Tigers fan, or any one that’s planning to come to São Paulo to watch any game. My email is Matheus.olscampos@gmail.com and please feel free to contact me if you need any tips about what to visit, where to party, where to stay…anything!
 
It's a pleasure working with everyone at TIGERLINK, and with any Hull City fan.
 
A hug from Brazil!

VINNIE & THE STARS

 

 

FUNDRAISING FOR THEIR NEW ALBUM

 

 

Check out this recent post from the Vinnie & The Stars facebook page;

 

'We need to raise funds to record our next album, our plan is to work with multi award winning producer Paul Milner on the vocals, production and mix of the album. We have 8 signed harmonicas left!!! 1 signed kick drum skin that got busted at our gig when we supported Goldie Lookin Chain, and there's also my first ukulele available that was used during the writing and recording of Vinnie & The Stars debut album swings & roundabouts. As well as getting you hands on some of this limited edition stuff, you'll also receive the finished album via download link before it's released... And in the mean time we'll also send you the home studio demos we've been working on for the past year. Previous artists that Paul Milner has worked for have gone on to sell gold and platinum sales certifications, won multiple awards for song writing and album production. We aim to work with Paul once the album is finished to further the progress of the band and get our music in the right hands of the right people. Please check out the indiegogo page we have created there's 40 days left to contribute to our campaign. We need you support to help us make this happen!!! As we endeavour to silver the greatest album we've ever written! 


https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/producing-vinnie-the-stars-new-album-with-award-winning-producer/x/6917331

You can contribute and get your hands on this stuff via PayPal or credit/debit card. It's really easy to do. And I'll be hand posting them out myself so drop me a message if you want anything personalised. I won't sign the ukulele until I know it's going to a good home, and may deliver by hand if it's a Yorkshire purchaser. 

Please share this information. Cheers!!!'

HULL CITY AFC v ARSENAL

 

 

 

We'll pull the plug from Hornsea Mere
When the Tigers win the Cup
We'll fill St Andrew's Dock with beer
When the Tigers win the Cup
We will booze all through the night
We will paint the Guildhall white
And find a little man to fight
When the Tigers win the Cup

 

We'll sink pints until we're dropping
When the Tigers win the Cup
And we're going to marry Mary Poppins
When the Tigers win the Cup
Lots of dirty songs we'll sing
Listen to the church bells ring
And Waggy will be crowned the King
When the Tigers win the Cup

 

We'll get paralytic drunk
When the Tigers win the Cup
And from our street we'll do a bunk
When the Tigers win the Cup
There before us, shining, stand
Angel Choir and Silver Band
Play us to our Happy Land
When the Tigers win the Cup

 

There is a Happy Land
Far far away...
Far far away...
Far far away...
