Strides made, structures in place for further progress

Starting the season, the club’s goal was to improve on the 2015/16 season.
That meant somehow turning some of the 11 defeats into wins in order to finish the season higher than the disappointing eighth spot.
This they did with ease as Gary Pearce gelled his squad of players into a squad capable of challenging the top sides in National Three North.
The five extra wins saw Hull finish third behind Runaway champions Huddersfield who went undefeated and Rossendale, who lost their play-off game by a point to Sheffield.
Despite having a better defensive the season before, Hull’s attack was more potent with 184 more points scored. This was helped by a 76-7 thrashing of Stockport who played the role of ‘whipping boys’ expertly.
A 125-17 aggregate score highlighted the gulf in class between the two sides with the White Rose county shining.
Four of Hull’s six losses came against the top two proving once again the table doesn’t lie.
Next season, the goal once again will be to improve on the campaign that has just ended. If that can be achieved, then a play-off place will be guaranteed at the very least.
The top prize of course is a return to National Two North at the third time of asking.
