Latest updates and what to look forward to from Hull City Ladies
Following a hectic and non-stop ride from the seasons opening day in August, a rare and unexpected day off due to storm Ciaran, gives us a chance to look forward to what is on our horizon, and update on the state of the Tigress Pack
Players and Injuries
The squad has ebbed and flowed in size over the course of the season, but thankfully most injuries have been minor and manageable week to week. Following her injury at FC United at the end of October, Shakala Brookes has thankfully not sustained any fractures with some damage to the ankle ligaments instead, we hope to see her back in the space of a few weeks. Tillie Oxley is currently our long term injury following ankle ligament damage sustained against Norton. Tillie is now in to rehab following a period of time in a boot and is working hard to manage recovery back as soon as possible. Rachel Sennitt is working through her recovery post surgery in the summer, and working hard towards her return for the Reserves

Rosie Caley has dual signed from local side Costello; TJ Cockburn has joined from Grimsby Boro; Ava Houlston has become a Tigress having previously played for Grimsby Town and young goalkeeper Lillie Penna has been added to the GK Union
