Hull FC have provided clarity to their fans over a banking problem which has effected their direct debit members.
The club have explained that a technical issue has occurred with their banking partner which is out of the club’s control. This has delayed the regular monthly membership payments which were supposed to be withdrawn on Friday 3rd but have been pushed back to Wednesday.
The club explained this in the following statement on social media: “Due to a technical issue with our banking partner outside of the club’s control, our direct debit members may have noticed their regular monthly membership payments were not withdrawn as usual on Friday 3rd November.
“Please note, all payments will now be taken on Wednesday 8th November.”
It is an exciting time for the club with a number of new signings arriving at the club such as Fa’amanu Brown, Herman Ese’ese and Franklin Pele.
The new season for them has begun for the Black and Whites with the club beginning their pre-season training on Monday 6th November with a a familiar face at the club again in the shape of former Hull KR and Leeds Rhinos fullback Jack Walker.
He said to the club website: “It’s been a really long year for me in 2023, so it was good to get away for an end-of-season holiday just to recharge the body and the mind before I get straight back to it,” he told hullfc.com.
“I suffered with injury at the start of the year, then I went into the Championship to play for Bradford for a while and then I did a spell at Hull KR, so it was a pretty mental year. But I’m feeling really good at the minute and I’m excited to get started for my second spell as a Hull FC player.
“I’m feeling confident at the moment. I learnt a lot under Danny McGuire at Hull KR and that has made me a better player today. I’m looking to bring that confidence over to the Black & Whites now and I really hope I can hit the ground running.
“My work has already started. It’s a couple of weeks until I’m in for my first day of pre-season at Hull, but I’m making sure I’m doing as much as I can in my own time to prepare for it all to officially start.”
Walker impressed in his short spell at the MKM Stadium in 2022, and he has continued to catch the eye with some stand-out performances on the east side of the city this year.
Whilst Walker is looking forward to being back in camp with a lot of familiar faces, he also says he can’t wait to be introduced to Hull’s other new recruits for the 2024 campaign.
“There’s still a lot of the lads at the club who were there when I did a loan spell in 2022, so I’m looking forward to getting back down to work with those guys, but also meeting the newer members in the squad and getting to know them as players and blokes,” he explained.
“It’s also going to be really exciting to get to sample the new facilities that the club has down at the University.
“James Clark sent me a video of all of the available facilities and I was really impressed.”
