We are please to report that our printers, Spectrum Print of Solihull have informed editor, CCFPA’s Mike Young, that the Association’s 10th Anniversary February edition of our members newsletter ‘Legend’ has been printed and will be delivered to our distributors (and fellow corporate members) Jigsaw CCS by Monday of next week. This means that, all being well, the printed copies will be quickly sent out to all our members to drop onto their mats within a few days.
This is the 23rd edition of our newsletter. It began publishing in September 2007 (Issue 1) under the banner ‘Sky Blue Heaven‘ and, since August 2013 (No.13), has been published as ‘Legend‘. This edition will therefore be the eleventh in the new style full colour magazine format and it will be a bumper 12 page issue with two extra pages of news and views about CCFPA activities and an application form and letter to all our Full FP Members formally inviting them to sign up for Legends day 2017 (and Golf Day 2017) both of which we intend to make our best ever!
In a season when we celebrate the achievements of two CCFC squads- the 50th Anniversary of the 1966-67 team reaching the top teir of English football for the first time and the 30th Anniversary of that famous 1986-87 F.A.Cup win at Wembley we have much to remember and even though the 2016-17 squad have got big problems in League One we can hope a corner has been turned with another Wembley final in the Checkatrade Trophy in April and, at long last, our first league win in 16 last Saturday at the Ricoh.
All the usual ‘Legend‘ items will be there and we focus particularly on the more than a dozen Former Players who have graced the Ricoh as our ‘special guests’ in home matches since last August. Amongst many other things we remember a couple of Jimmy Hill boys who have passed on to play in ‘Sky Blue Heaven’, we look at the on- and off-field charitable success of the Sky Blues Legends XI, tell you more about the work and personalities of the CCFPA committee, introduce you to our latest Association members and look back at some Xmas Hi-Jinks!
We hope that there is something for everyone in Legend 23 and that all will find it a good read.
