Hull look a decent side and in the first half Danny Potter had to make several excellent saves. We battled hard and played some good football in spells but seemed a little lightweight up front without Lee Boylan. Hull will probably be among the contenders for promotion from league one this season and they kept the ball well and gave our defence plenty of problems.
Of the new signings, Dominic Sterling had a superb game in defence, reading the game well and looking very solid.
Jonnie Keeling came on half time and lit up the game with some superb dribbling and nearly scored with a great effort. Also showed a real hard working element to his game.
Tony Quinton also came on in the midfield and distributed the ball well.
Canvey also featured Matt Joseph on trial, a former Leyton Orient and Cambridge fullback.
For the record, Nicky Barmby and Andy Dawson were second half goalscorers for Hull.
