Last Thursday (20th November 2014) several members of CCFPA attended the Coventry Sports Awards Ceremony. This was held at the Dallas Burston Polo Club in Southam. It was a prestigious event organised by Champions (UK) Ltd and was hosted by Willie Thorne and Emma Jesson.
The CCFPA members that attended were Dave Bennett, Kirk Stephens, Dietmar Bruck, Dave Busst, Andy Blair, Claus Bech Jorgensen, John Sillett and CCFC coach Steve Ogrizovic and Manager Steven Pressley. Additionally CCFPA Committee Members Bob Eales and Sandra Garlick were present. Some of them can be seen in the photo above with other guests at the ceremony.
The Sky Blues defender Ryan Haynes won the Professional Young Sportsperson of the Year award, which he accepted himself and the Professional Sportsman of the Year award was won by former Sky Blues striker Callum Wilson. Because Callum was unavailable to accept the award due to his call up for England Under 21 duties this award was accepted on his behalf by Bob Eales from CCFPA. The picture shows Dave Busst, Bob Eales, Ryan Haynes and Dave Bennett with the two awards. Another former Sky Blue and CCFPA member Steve Ogrizovic also received an award. Oggie was presented with the Community Award at the ceremony
Players from the current Sky Blues squad who were in attendance included Andy Webster, Ryan Haynes, Jim O’Brien, Ivor Lawton and Danny Swanson.
