Kinkladze, Anders Limpar, Kanchelskis. All these and many more have provisionally agreed to appear at a benefit match at the World Class KC stadium, proceeds to be split equally between 'Shoes for East Hull' and 'West Yorkshire Mutants Benevolent fund' - helping the offspring of couplings between miners and pit ponies.
This sense of noblesse oblige was mooted when a previous appeal brought a number of East Hull teenagers, whose families are in 'reduced circumstances' to the West of the city.
They were amazed at a plethora of items not normally found in East Hull, including grass, and fruit.
In addition to clothing and food, they will receive instruction in the 3 golden rules of gentlemanly conduct, namely;
- Be chivalrous to members of the opposite sex
- Start with the outermost cutlery and work inwards
- Never spit in a mans face unless his moustache is on fire (particularly appropriate for the hirsute, walrus like menfolk of Castleford and Featherstone)
- I feel Hull City are to be commended for this gesture, they really are going from strength to strength......
