The funeral arrangements for a Coventry City backroom stalwart John Bloxham who died earlier this month aged 70 have been announced. John was a lifelong Coventry City fan and had supported the Sky Blues in a number of different club roles, which combined, spanned over two decades.
As the club’s website says ‘Schoolmates with Bobby Gould, John was a part of the club in an informal capacity during Gould’s second spell as City manager in the 1980s. John’s Coventry City legacy officially began as an Academy Coach in May 1997, with the club in the Premiership and under the management of Gordon Strachan. He progressed to a Welfare and Education Officer for the Coventry City FC Academy in 1999, supporting all age groups of the Sky Blues youth system. Most recently, John has been involved in the administration of the football club, and during the 2015/16 season hosted in the matchday boardroom‘.
The service for John’s funeral will be held on Friday 8th July 2016 at Canley Crematorium at Cannon Hill Rd, Coventry, West Midlands CV4 7DF commencing at 11.15
