Hull FC set to make two marquee signings as ‘strong squad’ takes shape

Hull FC prepare to make more signings

Hull FC, according to owner Adam Pearson, are set to make two marquee signings in their bid to improve on their disappointing Super League campaign so far.

The Black and Whites currently sit second-from-bottom, only above London Broncos, and will certainly not be happy with how 2024 has gone.

They’ve already send head coach Tony Smith and big names such as Tex Hoy, Franklin Pele and Nu Brown packing, showing a real discontent.

However, they’ve also made moves the other way, securing John Cartwright as the new head coach for next year, bringing Richie Myler in as Director of Rugby, and making signings such as John Asiata, Jordan Abdull and Amir Bourouh for next year.

Pearson has spoken about his excitement at filling the marquee spots next year.

The Black and Whites are looking to have multiple players in the marquee spots next year.

Speaking to The Yorkshire Post, Adam Pearson said: “We’ve signed six or seven already for next year.

“We’ll probably have two marquee players next season, maybe a third.

“There’s a couple of very exciting potential signings on the horizon. If Richie and John pull those signings off, we’ll have a very exciting squad and a really, really strong spine for next season.

“John [Cartwright] and Richie [Myler] are talking daily. A lot of the targets are players John has coached over the last five to seven years so he’s got a really good handle on the personality and attributes of the player.”

Pearson also revealed a new system for finding new players, adding: “We’ve invested a significant amount in new software, a database that allows us to track every player in the world on a far more detailed basis.

“Richie has been key in bringing in that system, which is used by two or three Super League clubs.”

They’ll certainly need plenty of improvements on what we’ve seen on the field this season.
