Name: Lewis Akkas
Member since: Since I was a baby
Current favourite player: Danny Washbrook
All-time favourite player: Richard Swain
Lewis follows the Black & Whites to just about every game, every season and he is a well-known face on the terraces among Hull FC supporters.
His favourite player in the squad is Danny Washbrook for particular reasons.
Speaking to hullfc.com, Lewis said: “A lot of people, me included, were unsure about him when we re-signed him for 2016.
“But for me he has proved all the doubters absolutely wrong and he never gives anything less than 100% commitment in every game.”
The new season is only a few months away and Lewis has already secured his membership for next year and was first in line to get his hands on the home shirt that has proven popular with the faithful.
The jersey is designed in tribute to the record-breaking Invincibles team 40 years ago with the iconic black and white irregular hoops.
Lewis says it’s important to stay in touch with the history and heritage of the club, which has been done with next season’s home shirt.
He said: “I’m really glad it’s gone back to irregular Black & White hoops - it’s a fitting tribute to the 1978/79 season and the squad that season.
“It was way before my time, but I went to the 40th Anniversary dinner and 14 players from that season were able to attend.
“They went on stage and shared their stories. It’s something you have to appreciate, because what they did set the foundations for the famous glory days of the 80s.”
