We reproduce the photo above showing an ecstatic Sky Blue dressing room after (we think) that stirring F.A.Cup quarter final victory over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough in March 1987. The thrilling 3-1 win, followed by a semi final victory over Leeds United at the same venue the following month, paved the way for all those top memories for the Sky Blue family of that Wembley extra time win over Spurs and the triumphant homecoming to a packed Sky Blue City of Coventry.
Amongst the Sky Blues celebrating the Hillsborough 3-1 win can be seen (left to right - back row) Manager John Sillett , Steve Ogrizovic, David Phillips, Lloyd McGrath , Steve Sedgley, Cyrille Regis, Brian Kilcline, Trevor Peake and Nick Pickering. In the front are George Dalton (club physio), Brian Borrows, Greg Downs and Micky Gynn. Prominent in the photo (on the right) is CCFPA committee member Dave Bennett, apparently leading the festivities (as so often the case) with what seems to be the largest bottle on display!
For the record Cyrille scored one of the goals and the other two were scored by Keith Houchen who appears strangely out of the shot. Dave told his fellow committee members that the picture brought back many fantastic memories.
We are proud to say that every single one of those in the photo from 27 years ago are current Association members!
