Tigers Ready To Depart For Kenya - Hull City

Tigers Ready To Depart For Kenya

The Tigers will depart for Kenya on Friday morning for a trip arranged in conjunction with Main Shirt Sponsor SportPesa.

The showpiece event of the trip will see Nigel Adkins’ side take on Kenyan League Champions Gor Mahia in Nairobi on Sunday (KO 1pm UK time), but there is also an important social aspect to the visit with players and staff set to witness the work of several community projects in areas such as the underdeveloped Kibera.

On the pitch, the visit is aligned with SportPesa’s mission to develop grassroots football on the African continent with the match against Kenyan opponents aimed at exposing local players to international competition and increasing their exposure on the world football scene.

Set to take place at the Kasarani Stadium, Adkins’ squad for the game will be made up of the following players:

David Marshall

Callum Burton

Dan Batty

Jarrod Bowen

Fraizer Campbell

Billy Chadwick

Max Clark

Adam Curry

Nouha Dicko

Evandro

Brandon Fleming

Tyler Hamilton

Will Keane

Stephen Kingsley

Robbie McKenzie

Tom Powell

Kevin Stewart

Jon Toral

 

The squad will return to the UK next Wednesday, 16th May.
