Do you think clubs(nearly all) not having any decent facilities is a problem in Hull .

Just looked in the HDM rugby union , Beverley especially have pictures/reports across three pages , league zero . Pro teams get good coverage but amateur is near invisible . Like you say Dis - Heartening   

It won’t help, there is no money in the sport so if you cannot generate your own money your on a hiding to nothing, I would ask if these clubs keep money generated except the odd bus stop and fund raiser 

West Hull play from a community centre due to the demise of Winter Rugby they took a football team on board , to keep the tills running

East Hull think OA pitch is council owned youth play from a school they go back to a labour club

Skirlaugh play from East side which was BP sports club

Dockers play on east park and go back to the labour club

Myton play from Marist Sporting club, the pitches are leased from the university. Bit of difference Myton share this with Marist RU they also get no revenue from the bar but recently they did a raffle £10k was the donated prize off the RU, Marist RU have one Team and no youth, Myton are happy to raffle a donated bottle of wine.

Beverley play from a council park pitch and go back to a pub

Hull Wyke have just had some lottery funding their pitch is council owned but the club house theirs I have not visited as I don’t think finished 

Cottingham have decent facilities but share with Football and Cricket not sure who is the land lord funny since the demise of Winter Rugby they have youth but no open age

NHK, Three Tuns, Lambwath, Brownies, Reckitts about all that is left of the Hull teams not mentioned above all play on council owned pitches and go back to a pub

During my travels all areas Cumbria, Lancashire, Yorkshire even if not theirs they advertise as if their own, for instance Lock Lane, Hunslet Parkside play from a sports centre but seem to have taken them over with advertising their own brand

In the area Hullensians, Ionians, Hornsea, Bridlington, Driffield, Malton, Hessle, Goole RU all have their own facilities

Strange set up for Myton . Hull Dockers have had the rug pulled from under them over the years , Pelican sports ground is one example . Makes me want to weep when I cycle passed the old Reckitts sports facility . Rugby pitches/football/hockey/crown green bowls/grass tennis courts , netball , club/changing rooms now next to nothing . No joined up thinking from anyone never mind Hull and District .

I think its a good idea if you can get different sports using a facility , opens up grants/charities etc . In the main pie in the sky .

Your right about Reckitts best sports ground in Hull in its day all finals were played there, County Road would have been good for Wyke with the old Ideal clubhouse but now Hull FC have it bit of a waste really there is never anyone on it.

i was told part of the deal to build on Reckitts was to have a sports pitch Lambwath were going to move there not sure where that went

I will have a wild guess , rent maybe a little steep for amateur sports teams , land banked for the builder .

Lambwath refused to use the pitch (something to do with the pitch is to close to the drain i've been told) the pitch is now used by Hull masters rlfc and there is also a football pitch on site, nice changing rooms and a little kitchen area as well

Really , sports ground makes way for multi million pound housing development (estate) .

One rugby pitch and one football pitch , thats a fantastic outcome . 

Thats not taking into account the loss of another open space , within the city boundary .

Could have been worse, no clause no Rugby and Football pitch not many projects build sports facilities and don’t forget the state it got in when Reckitts pulled away

Could have been , no doubt about it . Hull City Planning Department could have put pressure on Hull Brewery who owned the land (not 100% on that ) to keep on top of the facility . Why should they as the owners only ever wanted one outcome for the site . To call it Planning is a big joke , nothing is planned with any joined up thinking . Mr Reckitt would turn in his grave if he could see the facilities now .

Have you ever said anything and wondered why because it's nothing like how you would actually speak?

Didn’t think Kings Lynn would make it to the start. Brexit and immigration changes have really hurt the club - the Dunn’s i.e. coaching team, may well have to leave the country due to a large hike in visa charges.

Could you elaborate?  You've piqued my curiosity!
