Saturday 05 October 2019: 15:00 Kick Off at The Hammond Homes Stadium, DN15 9QF
Rangers are back in action at home this Saturday following their 1-1 draw last weekend at Ollerton. East Hull have just recruited local Hull legend Dean Windass to manage them. After starting the season with ten straight defeats, conceding an average goal difference of 4.5 goals per game in run that saw them concede 48 goals and score just 3. Rangers will be hoping that they do not have the misfortune to be on the wrong end of a new manager ‘bounce’.
It will be interesting to see if Dean Windass has brought in any new players into the set-up at East Hull. The club is under the same ownership that was at the helm when North Ferriby United folded last season, and they have had some ‘interesting’ offers at home games this season as they work hard to drum up support for the new club. A particularly interesting scheme was the offer at the first two home games this season was that they offered to give away £5,000 to one lucky member of the crowd. This was by means of a free raffle ticket given on entry at the turnstiles. This promotion was abandoned when only 38 showed up for their six nil home defeat to Nostell MW.

Interesting Fact: During a spell in which Dean Windass played for Aberdeen, he was sent off not once, not twice, but three times in the same match! To compound matters he ripped up the corner flag and threw it to the ground on his way to the tunnel, securing another eight penalty points, making it 22 points earned in one game. He was given a six-match ban and a two-week wage fine.
