A place bursting with sporting passion, they've actually


have got two rugby league teams, and the football team has put their


fans through more ups and downs than a particularly mean


The footballing future of this place is looking


particularly bright, especially if this lot


have anything to say on


Welcome to our Kickabout special from Hull!


All that and more to look forward to in a packed show,


including a fantastic football challenge -


We are at Hall Road Rangers, a brilliant


Full of local footballing talent so we


thought we would put them through their paces with a challenge.


Who better to help with that challenge


than one of the world's best football freestylers?


Well, I can't tell you too much about it, other than


that it involves some hula hooping, and a time


In the meantime, why don't we check out some of the Tiger's


And the substitute has drawn Hull level.


So you have seen the goals and met some


Time now to find out all about this amazing


city courtesy of some of our new friends from Hall Road Rangers.


The first thing you should know about Hull is it is not


About 250 years ago a man named William Wilberforce was


He was very important in abolishing the slave trade.


There is always loads going on in Hull.


But this year there is even more because


Hull is the UK's city of culture for 2017.


There have been brilliant events all year.


We even hosted radio one's Big Weekend.


If you are visiting Hull I would take you to


the Street Life Museum because it will show you how people in Hull


I would take you to the Holy Trinity minster because it is a


And I would take you to the KCOM stadium, but I'll let


We are nicknamed the Tigers because of our distinctive orange


The stadium can hold over 25,000 people and we share


Hull City started in 1904 and we have had some rocky


In 1999 we nearly got relegated out the football league


In the next nine years we got better and better and in 2008


we got to the play-off final at Wembley.


Striker Dean Windass, who was a local lad, scored a great


volly to win us the game and got us into the Premier League.


Dean Windass puts Hull City into the lead.


In 2014 we got through to the FA Cup final by


After ten minutes of the final we


But Arsenal came back in extra time to win it.


That was fantastic learning all about


What are your memories of this stadium?


My first ever game was when we played Manchester United.


He called me cheeky because I said we were better


One of my first memories is probably when I


We walked out with thousands of people clapping


It is rather fitting we should be talking about Hull's


footballing history as it relates to the challenge we will be taking


Back in 1970 Hull were involved in the first ever


penalty shoot out in English professional football.


Their opponents that day, a certain Manchester


United, who boasted among their ranks George Best, Bobby Charlton


Needless to say Hull did not emerge victorious and they


were amongst the first of us to experience the pain and anguish


associated with penalties penalty shoot outs.


One of the worst penalties you will see.


The agony. I figured out three steps. The first is figuring out


where you want the ball to go and not changing your mind.


The second step is confidence. Relax. Lots of people rush a penalty


but there is no need to rush it. 1-1. Very cool indeed.


The third and final step is once you hit the ball hit it cleanly and hit


it on target. Fantastic. We need to hit a target.


When I was younger lot of players doneness, they put the group and one


of the corn laws knowing if the ball went through it it was the perfect


penalty -- they put a hoop. There you have it. The challenge is


to score the perfect penalty and that should look a little something


like this. Right, whilst Hall Road Rangers cry


and master the perfect penalty John and I are going to take a look


around Hull. Oh, Hull. I drew up each a few miles


down the road and even though they have been bitter rivals to my Leeds


United, I cannot help but love the city. It's fantastic. Isn't that


right, John? John? Not only can you go over the water,


you can go under it as well, well, sort of.


It is the only city in the UK to have developed its own municipal


Telephone system resulting in these unique and rather snazzy white phone


boxes. Gaunt, John. Do the honours. # Drawn, John. Yes!


OK, sorry to interrupt, but can I have a cool. Pick your sport and try


and hit it cleanly. Things do go wrong sometimes. I will let you


carry on. Sorry. Well done. Great go in goal but it's


time for you to take some penalties and time for a goalkeeping


masterclass. Is that in? That was awesome.


Well, there you have it. If this lot are anything to go by in the future


of England's penalty taking is in safe hands. Or feet. We have had a


fantastic time here at Hall Road Rangers in Hull. That is all for


now. See you. Goodbye!
