Excellent piece on the BBC website about Roy Francis and his pioneering ways in British sport. It also highlights some shocking aspects of racism that were sadly commonplace back then. Paints the city of Hull in a good light as being very accepting at the times when racial tensions were brewing up elsewhere. Also some great old photos
A shame his story has not reached more people, perhaps this article will help. well worth a read

The referee's indecision is final

Great article. Front page on the BBC sports site as well. Should be read by all sports fans.

Every Hull fan should be proud of the club and Roy Francis.

Here's a really good YT video about him
Most definitely the best coach Hull has had.
