Copy for the new New Year edition of the Association’s membership newsletter Legend is now at our printers, Spectrum Print of Solihull. This will be the fifth in our new format full colour eight page magazine and the first since the Club’s return to the Ricoh. It is anticipated that a proof of Issue 17 of the magazine will be ready for approval towards the end of this month and the final version will be ready for publication early in January 2015 in what all hope is a New Year with the Sky Blues having turned something of a corner in their history!
Of course, the newsletter reflects on the Association’s response to the challenges of the ‘Ricoh Return’ and our plans for 2015. As usual, it is packed full of news, views and reports of what we have been up to since the last issue in August 2014. The centre pages focus on all the former Sky Blues that have become our ‘special guests’ in the first half of the current League One season. We also, as usual, report news of Sky Blues Former Players around the world, cover some of the Charitable events CCFPA’s former players have supported, stimulate memories of better Sky Blues days in our ‘Blast from the Past’, highlight our new corporate membership, and mention some changes in the CCFPA committee.
It is planned that each of our full, Associate and Corporate members will receive their copy as early as possible next month. Overseas based members may have to wait a little longer. Sadly, there will be a few Associate members who have been removed from the mailing list because of non renewal of their membership (despite several reminders). If you would like to join (or rejoin) our Sky Blue Former Player family for the second half of the season, to guarantee receipt of this and the next copy of this popular publication, please send your subscription with renewal form a.s.a.p. We can now offer a reduced subscription of £10 (just tap on the ‘Join us’ button on the top right for a guide on how to (re)join).
We hope that there will be something for everyone and that all will find it a good read. Watch this space for news of when the magazines are being sent out by us to our membership!
