Last Saturday the Sky Blues continued their promising start to the season by achieving a second successive home victory against Yeovil after their emotional ‘Ricoh Return’ 1-0 win the the previous Friday. Following Claus Bech Jorgensen as the Association’s first home ‘Special Guest’ of the season against Gillingham it was Sky Blue favourite Marcus Hall who did the honours against the Glovers. Marcus had also attended the Gills game with his son and was overwhelmed by the tremendous support provided by the 27000 happy band that comprised the Sky Blue Army on the night.
Marcus was one of a significant number of former Sky Blues who were present at the Ricoh on Saturday. Amongst the CCFC Former Players spotted in the Yorkshire Bank Lounge and the press boxes at the Arena were Ken Brown, David Busst, Ron Farmer (pictured), Ian Goodwin, Micky Gynn, Lol Harvey, Peter Hormantschuk, Brian Nicholas, Cyrille Regis, Brian Roberts, Ken Satchwell, Gordon Simms, Bill Tedds, Graham Walker and Peter Wyer (all CCFPA members). Of course, Sky Blues Former Players both (and Association Members) current CCFC gaffer Steven Pressley and goalkeeping coach Steve Ogrizovic were taking leading roles in the dugout orchestrating the current Sky Blues team’s successful endeavours as they ran out 2-1 winners overYeovil with goals from formidable captain Reda Johnson and debutant Simeon Jackson (former CCFC loanee Aaron Martin was central defender for the Sky Blues opponents).
Marcus was good value in his matchday summarising for BBC Coventry & Warwickshire’s Clive Eakin and Geoff Foster and, as all our ‘special guests’ do, toured the Arena’s lounges before and after the game (interviewed by Sky Blue favourite Brian ‘Harry’ Roberts – pictured) and met the Sky Blues fans and did a Q&A on the stage of Lady Gs at the G-Casino. Thanks Marcus!
