2018 News and Match Dates – Recent Hull FC News

With the recent transfer window in January 2018, loads of transfers have occurred across the various teams and countries. So now that the window has closed, on the 31st of January, let us take a look at the changes to the Hull FC line up.

The new and existing players make for an exciting season, so mark your calendar for the match dates.

Henry Wilson

The new edition is on loan from Liverpool for the rest of this season, and is tipped to add a lot of extra flair to Nigel Adkins squad.

The young winger was the Tigers second recruit on the last day of the transfer period, and Wilson has declared his delight and interest in the transfer to Hull.

Though he is only 20 years old, Wilson worked his way through the Liverpool Academy, to make his debut last season as a substitute for Anfield.

Wilson has been a regular in the under 21 squad, for Wales but also played for them against Belgium at just 16 years old. Wilson also has signed a long term deal with the Anfield club, so he will be looking to impress Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp by assisting Hull in their Championship battles.

Touted as one of football’s hottest up and coming young players, Henry Wilson will be watched closely by fans, fellow players and especially club owners.

Angus MacDonald

The signing of MacDonald for an undisclosed fee from Barnsley was completed on the 31st of January, with MacDonald agreeing to a tow and half year deal, with a possible one year extension option.

This experienced player has worked his way through the Reading Academy and had a spot on the Under 16 and the under 19 team for England. He has also played for AFC Wimbledon, Salisbury City and Torquay United before landing a spot in Barnsley in 2016.

He made the first team captain of the Oakwell club at the beginning of the past season, and he had played 54 times for them. This central defender will add some youth and greatly needed skill to the squad, and also assist with the Championship struggle this year.

MacDonald is thrilled to be a part of the Hull team, and considers it a great opportunity to advance in his career. He is looking forward to impressing Nigel Adkins with his impeccable skills and diligent training.

Will Keane

Once again fit, Keane is looking forward to assisting the Tigers win against the Lilywhites on Saturday. Keane had spent half of the 2015/16 campaign with the Lilywhites on loan, and will enjoy his return to Deepdale.

Keane speaks highly of the Lilywhites and his time there but is now focused on the Tigers and the win against the Lilywhites.

Since his return to form after his knee ligament injury, Keane has made three substitute appearances and is happy to be back in the action with the first team. Will Keane has expressed his positivity about his comeback from injury, and his faith in his fellow team mates and management is strong.

The upcoming 2017/2018 season with the new players and the returning players is looking good, so expect some fight from the tigers and no quit attitude.
