Championship football team, Hull City, have been confirmed as the only side in the entire Football League whose name has no letters in it to colour in.

This applies whether the name is written in upper or lower case characters.

The news emerged just days after the Tigers' coach, Nigel Adkins, announced he was leaving the club, citing "differences with the club's owners" as the reason.

It's been reported however, that Adkins told close friends he found the set-up at Hull "colourless and uninspiring", and that this was exacerbated by the lack of colouring opportunities the club's name offered.

Adkins' assistant, Andy Crosby, said:

"Nigel used to sit in his office after training, doodling on scraps of paper. I thought he was planning set pieces or juggling formations or something, but then I saw he was colouring-in the names of our opponents. This was something he couldn't do with our own name, and I think this bothered him."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
