Untold HCAFC is a project that recorded memories around Hull City Football Club.

Here’s what Glynis Charlton, Phil Ascough and Clare Huby had to say about the project:
“Hull City Football Club has a long history since its birth in 1904. The club has been an integral part of the lives of many of Hull’s citizens over the years and everyone’s experience of attending a game is different. What better way to explore and capture that experience than through the words of the fans themselves?
So we took to local press, radio and social media to ask for people’s stories, plus, one busy Saturday, we brazenly approached shoppers in Hull city centre. We said we wanted to hear people’s memories – and they didn’t disappoint.
Untold HCAFC is not about match reports, but about the anecdotes, the atmosphere, the whole experience of what it means to be a City supporter. It’s about the laughs, the regrets, the downright daft. From the Boothferry Park days, when Health & Safety was unheard of, to the stunning transition to the KC stadium.
These are tales of turnstiles, trains, buses, pies, pints, stolen tigers, benches on bricks, the occasional penalty … and a sprinkling of rust.”
